localtalk to ethernet

Hello all,
I thought maybe someone (anyone) could give me some advice on connecting an old (but in perfect working order) laser printer which has localtalk/serial/parallel ports to our ethernet network (not our day to day printer, just used when magicolour 330 decides to have a day off). I have in the past used it via an old quadra 650 with both ethernet and localtalk, but sadly, albeit quietly in his sleep, old maccy passed away last week
I have seen a few localtalk to ethernet adapters out there, but I am unsure as to compatibility with OS's, and I am struggling to find a supplier within the UK.
Any advice, based on knowledge or experience would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in anticipation
