    Ok so ive been looking online to see if a fax machine works just fine for making stencils. I would like to confirm this because these fax machines run about 20$-30$. And does anybody know what model or models i can use ?? :?:

    I’m not sure if a fax would work.
    I found a dot matrix printer, and it works great.

    It will work as long as it is thermal, thermal is the key here.

    you can use a dot matrix printer if you use hectograph paper
    if you use spirit master themal paper you need a thermal fax copier or a thermal office fax machine
    mine is a brother mfc 1970MC but its really old
    you can find cheap ones on craigslist or kijiji or ebay

    I don’t remember the brand, I could check if you like.
    I was like $35 on ebay. It’s really impressive in the
    amount of detail that it reproduces.

    again if you use a dot matrix printer you have to make sure you get hectograph paper as it uses pressure rather than heat to transfer teh carbon

    I made a video on how to use a thermal office fax machine to make a stencil.
