Is a mimeograph machine a copy printer?
If yes, can you tell me more?

<G>
A mimeograph machine did make copies. However, we had to type on special mimeograph paper with a carbon backing. Then we placed the paper on a drum that rotated, making copies. I'll bet your parents can tell you about the purple ink and particular smell to mimeographed work sheets.
