When shopping around for a secondhand mimeo machine, try to find one with a built-in stencil-cutter (or look for an electrostencil machine). These machines allow you to lay out and paste up your newsletter pages as you would for other methods of printing. Your page mechanical is then slipped into the machine, scanned, and a stencil is cut as the machine copies the image. (The stencil used is typically stronger than the ones you type into and will produce more copies.)
