The poor-man's duplex printer is mpage's -j option:

   mpage -j 2%2 foo	# evens
   mpage -j 1%2	foo	# odds

...you run the paper through the printer twice, but it tends to
work...if the printer doesn't jam.  Can save you some $$ in a duplexing

My own preference would be to find an older, reconditioned HP-LJ4/5 at a
used equipment store.
