Dumpster Diving

Dan found a Lexmark X215 multifunction printer-copier-scanner-fax in a dumpster.
After recovering it, dusting it off, and giving it a try, we found that it was always jamming.
Despite my protests that I am not a hardware geek, I ended up taking the machine apart; I found that its Mylar comb, used to guide the paper, had a bent tine.
Two minutes of work with a pair of scissors, and OnlineGroups.Net has a new printer!
