  5. Hi could somebody email me Mr. cromus's information, I have a 3m model 45EGA in need of repair.

  6. In ebay, there are offers for thermofax repair.

  7. After not using my thermofax machine for a few months and maybe moving it to a different location, it suddenly stopped working. I just talked with Gil White (contact info above), and he got my machine working over the phone - what a relief! Seems the lid was not completely closed, so if you have a problem, try that fix first!
