Did you consider using wireless single port print servers? TP-Link and Startech among others have models. If a network is required an inexpensive WiFi router could provide local access.

 

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

TBH you can get old OEM PCs way cheaper on facebook or craigslist than eBay if they aren't too far out f the way.  Sand, Ivy, or Haswell systems can regularly be had for under $50.  Though, for win11 Haswell is gonna be easiest for fTPM.  Sandy or Ivy will need a TPMcheck skip, which is actually really easy but might subvert organizational security stuff. 

The sign is a subtle joke. The shop is called "Sneed's Feed & Seed", where feed and seed both end in the sound "-eed", thus rhyming with the name of the owner, Sneed. The sign says that the shop was "Formerly Chuck's", implying that the two words beginning with "F" and "S" would have ended with "-uck", rhyming with "Chuck". So, when Chuck owned the shop, it would have been called "Chuck's Feeduck and Seeduck".
