cnc milling or routing setup from old dot matrix printer? Answered

Many years ago  I purchased a radio shack 9 pin dot matrix printer.  The thing is huge and built like a tank.  Packrat that I am, I haven't disposed of it although it has pretty much outlived its usefulness as a printer.  I was wondering if there might be a quick and/or dirty way of attatching a battery operated tool like a dremel to where the printing head is currently?


Its a beginning. You'll have to heavily modify the thing to make it move in another plane, but you have one axis (of three), and a motor for a second
