Came across this video, seems fairly simple procedure for toner transfer with good results.

As with many of these things, works for some but not for others.
Guess just try and see.



Edit:......Curious though as to which chemical actually does the job....:):):)

Ingredients
Acetone, Aqua, Parfum, Ethoxydiglycol, PPG-12-PEG-50 Lanolin, Benzophenone-3, Panthenol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Benzoate, Methylparaben, Sorbic Acid, Benzyl Cinnamate, Benzyl Salicylate, Cinnamyl Alcohol, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde, CI 42053, CI 19140, CI 42090

I'll put all my eggs in one basket and bet on acetone.

It's the acetone in nail polish remover that gets the toner off. Yes you can use nail polish remover but a jug of acetone from a hardware store is much cheaper per oz and stronger so you need fewer ounces per job... and doesn't leave all those other ingredients behind that you need a 2nd step to clean off.

I tried this and could not get it to transfer from the hp5000 printer paper to the catalog paper. I think the Fusion 1100L Swingline laminator may be the problem or is it the toner in the hp5000?

Without watching this I'm going to assume this is the wet toner transfer method.

You have to make sure that the toner used in your printer is "melted" with acetone.

There are also versions where you disable the fuser on your printer leaving the powdered toner on the surface of your paper.
