Impact Printer OSX

We used to use Mannesman Tally printers. They were chosen for their  
speed and (I think) worked with Mac years ago, before we migrated to  
You will need to check the current status of Tally drivers on Mac OSX  
before proceeding.

Remember that if you are looking for pure performance, you should send  
ASCII characters to port, rather than printing via a printer driver.  
You lose the ability to change fonts, print graphics like background  
objects (rectangles etc) and you can't position with pixel accuracy.  
However, sending ascii to a directly connected (not networked) printer  
and letting the printer print using it's own internal font set is an  
old fashioned way of churning out high volumes rapidly.
