The VT52 printer used a very odd  system. A spiral wire on a drum sat on 
one side of the paper and the other a sraight edge.
So you  could scan a line at a time. The paper must have been treated 
with something or other.
A great project for somebody to try and make. Very simple mechanics, One 
turn of the drum = advance one scan line.
