Default DIY DTG Printer

I'm new to the industry, looking to branch out from HTV, and looking at sublimation or DTG next, but on a VERY tight budget. Sublimation looks affordable, but I'm not sure I want to be limited to white shirts with 50+ poly.

So I keep reading things here and there and have come across the DIY DTG printer. No doubt you professionals will warn against it, but if it can get me to the next step for 6 months, I think I would consider it a success, but am concerned mostly about the quality of the shirts.

I did some searching, and found a couple how-to youtubes within last year, but not much current on this board (maybe I wasn't broad enough in my search?).

Anyone with ACTUAL experience with this: success or failure?

Thanks.

EDIT: Also, I've found openDTG.com, so it does seem there is a fairly robust support community for this, but I would think the experience on this site would provide a broader perspective.

Ok, I just noticed a whole subforum above called DIY DTG. I'm scratching my head as to why it didn't come up in my forum search, but I'll poke around there for a while.
