Honestly, the best way is to find yourself an older printer he can
print directly to. Any Apple LaserWriter would do, but my money would
be on an old StyleWriter II or maybe 2100. You want one that uses the
once-ubiquitous BC-01 or BC-02 carts. These have the added benefit of
being easy and cheap to refill (because they probably aren't cheap any

I would do some research first of course. I would be tempted to give
you mine, but it's a US model, running on 110V, and hasn't been used
in years and years. :-( I'd be afraid of it causing you more problems
than help.
