"Thank you! Yep, Repeat O Type has fluid but he said it can't be shipped. Great to know about rubbing alcohol!! I posted in your FB group as well :-)"

Captain Mimeo replied to Joshua Savoiesuperstar's discussion Mimeograph
"The guy at Repeat O Type has real fluid, but it's pricy. You should be able to make your own wick, though I've never tried. Basically the wick lets the fluid run down to a sponge that extends the width of the drum, wetting it on each…"

"Hello again knowledgeable zinesters, I just purchased a spirit duplicator- like a mimeograph. I've tracked down the necessary master stencils, but I need spirit fluid and a new wick. I understand that I should use methanol but can't find…"

"Well, I know a guy in Toronto who likes Gestetners, but I think, like me, he's thinking maybe he's got too many at the moment. I'm in Minneapolis, and a 360 would be a monster to crate up and ship. But please do not toss this machine,…"

"I have a Gestetner 360 machine in very good condition. Used last by my Grandparents about 20 yrs ago. Stored inside and covered since. I'm in Western NY state - let me know if you're interested."

"My mimeo is very light, lighter than my ditto machine.  I picked it up and carried it easily.   Some mimeo and dittos are big "floor models", but many are lighter and more portable.  Like manual typewriters, they come…"

"I was replying to James.N about the ditto machine, but the name we used was "polycopy". Smells like almonds."

James N. Dawson replied to Joshua Savoiesuperstar's discussion Mimeograph
"Joshua, Thanks for getting in contact with me. I have been doing zines now and then for the past 10 or 15 years on a DITTO MACHINE, not a mimeograph. A ditto machine is also called a SPIRIT DUPLICATOR, and it usually makes copies of blue ink,…"

"Do you mean mimeograph or ditto? I made a mimeograph zine a few years ago. I'm in Portland and the IPRC has one and we have classes from time to time. I also I know just the guy to talk to who is also in Portland."

"I know James N. Dawson has written about them several times in the past. He's even printed off several issues of his different zines on them. He's a member here, so you might want to drop him a line and see what he can tell you."

always glad to meet someone who isn't in a huge big rush to do everything everywhere all at once

I'll be around NE mpls for several more years, and my time frame for finding a home for the printing gear is pretty much that I want it gone before we find our little organic farm and retire from our day jobs to a quiet country life. With a music studio in the barn...

forgot all about sisters camelot since I moved to the far north end of North East Mpls 5 years ago

they are one of the groups I thought might be interested in a donation of printing equipment that doesn't require computers, or even electricity, to print stuff with.

so you fix gear, eh - I have this ancient Roland JC120 in my studio, last time someone pluged a guitar into it the reverb was out... (I'm a drummer) but on the other hand I can afford to pay to have it fixed, I just never seem to get around to it...

I'll get back to you on mimeos but nudge me if you don't hear from me in a while. I'm designing a book at the moment (when I'm not at my day job) and the book needs to be done and at the printer before Thanksgiving.

Discussion to throw out: I would love to give all my mimeo gear to a group, a zine collective maybe, if such a thing exists. I could help get it running and then I'd retire to an occasional advisory position. (I was picturing such a thing happening in the basement of the Hard Times or one of the food or bike co-ops or something else nonprofit but stable enough that the gear wouldn't have to be moved around every couple months for lack of a space... )
