THE ZX Printer Spool solves a problem which bedevils Sinclair users. The aluminium spindle and two end-pieces are fitted to the paper roll and allow it to turn easily. The plastic ends on the printer are often loose and cause it to wander from side to side, preventing the printer motor pulling through the paper.
It solved the problem but only after tapping one end of the paper reel on a hard surface to get it back into line.
The results are much better printout both for graphics and text, plus a great saving in printer paper.
The ZX Printer Spool costs £4 and can be obtained from Sadlers Developments, Sadlers, Vicarage Lane, Send, Woking, Surrey GU23 7JN.
