Default I learn something new every day

I'm soon going to make a bookcase using 300mm (a little under 12") boards and did a test on my radial arm saw. The cut was about a mm out from front to back and nothing that I tried fixed it so I did a Google search for a maintenance manual and came across a site with a huge collection of DeWalt publications and as I was setting up the printer I got into "advanced settings" and found that it was possible to do auto double sided printing starting from the first or last page. I was amazed at what a perfect job it did. My printer is an all in one Kodak EasyShare 5500, I wonder if all printers can do this.
The link to the above site is

OWWM - DeWalt Products Co. - Publication Reprints

Harry,
Mine's an old HP and it does that too. Never have used that feature, though.
It sends and receives faxes, also.
I don't print a whole lot other than patterns. Darned ink is so expensive. Printer makers are in the ink business rather than the printer business.

I bought a Samsung color laser because of the inkjet problems. Darned things always dried up.
I've done several double sided and 2 pages per sheet printing. Saves trees.

Mine is a Dell all in one, has the same feature. Like others, don't use it though. I probably should but....

I have a HP that came with the computer. I know of no way to print both sides other than flipping the paper. I don't print that much anymore and usually just download to the computer's hard drive. Takes less storage space. Plus I can remember where I put it. lol

It prints odd or even pages first, then you put those sheets in turned over, and it prints the remaining sheets on the other sides.
I also store most things on the drive. Only print what I need in the shop for reference.
