    I already got it! Got a 4+ without fuser assembly for a song, and throw 
everything away but the useful parts: Gear train, motor, power supply, panel 
and have (safely) stored a new fuser roller, fuser gear and "fuse" gear (the 
entire gear train of the 4+ is made of metal, but ONE gear. This gear breaks 
if the fuser assembly locks up or something weird happens in the gear 
train). I can make it work forever!!! Although I'd love to have a HP5 (that 
is an HP4 with two very interesting features: A "cancel job" button and the 
infrared comm)
