PCB transfer fuser from old printer

As a follow up to the Make video on laser printer PCB transfer, here is a cool page about using the fuser from a broken laser printer to transfer toner.

The toner transfer method works by remelting the toner onto the PCB, then you remove the paper and etch the board. From my experiences it's quite the pain getting the heat even enough over the board to ensure consistent transfer. It looks like using a printer fuser would be a good way to get the even heat.

I've already started looking for old laser printers to rip apart and make my own fuser.
