I'm trying to find some info on repurposing a thermal receipt printer but I keep coming up with Adafruit's $50 thermal printer.
Does anyone in this category have any experience in converting an existing receipt printer (i.e. one you might find at a thrift store) and sending instructions to it from an Arduino?
The objective is to find a receipt printer for a couple bucks at a thrift store but if rewriting a "protocol" to get it to work properly is going to be more effort than it's worth, then I might just buy the prebuilt thermal printer instead.
Thanks in advance!
