[PLUG] Trade/Free Laser Printer

I've got an old Lexmark Optra laser printer I'd like to trade, or failing 
that, to give away.

This is a very nice Model 4049-RAO manufactured back when Fred & Barney were 
still working for Mr Slate at the quarry (July 1996).

The thing has a new cartridge, but leaves light printing on the right side and 
a horizontal band across the page every 5".  (See the image at )

I've tried cleaning it, but have not gotten rid of the distortions.

The coolest thing about this printer is that it understands postscript, so no 
ghostscript interpreter is needed.  Due to its age, however, only a parallel 
interface is available.

It's sitting in my basement not being used, so I'll give it away, but would 
prefer to trade for an old linuxable wireless access point.

Anybody want an old printer with more than a few quirks?
