The inks are 3/4 full cymk 4oz bottles and one full k... The printers are both used and have not been torn down yet.

One of the printers came with a set of ink cartridges but one is empty and I could not get it to print a test print. The other printer has no cartridges whatsoever. They have been used with standard ink not DTG and SHOULD be fine with cleaning. Each is provided with a set of refillable empty cartridges. The price is right and no warranty is implied.

I hope that helps... The information is on the website.

Thanks Jeff,

Bob ?;O)

Are you going post a DIY guide to build the R1900 DTG printer? If yes hopefully simple to the point where the average idiot can build it or at least attempt too.

all the info is pretty much here in one form or another

Im not going to do step by step instruction manual if thats what your asking? you have prolly just dropped in the discussion of the timing arrangment regarding the belt, dont let that discourge you its easy ... everything is very simple if your a little mechanically inclined... thats the real savings in this project is building it yourself or having a friend etc help if your lacking the skills..

i have no issue with helping anyone or answering specific questions regarding the build however.. but my time is pretty much over run as is..

i do have a few things in motion regarding the printers but its just talk at this point! we will see what the future holds...

I am using EKRIP version 3.4.3 r1900..

it had alot of features to begin with but mine is heavily modified.. im like the test guinea pig for this (diydtg) based on my design... as i relay info they modify it to the needs of the printer, send it back for my testing in a beta version..then when i see that its good i relay back and they update the modifications to the real deal..then i test again..lol

everything is pretty much worked out these mods are in roll mode aswell.. im working on the new drive so there will be one more mod yet... there great people-fast to get it modified usually less than a day, and it works remarkably..to say the least.. i keep saying this but the table feed adjustment and gap adjust feature are priceless. its a must have for diydtg..

hope it helps..

Default Re: Mission accomplished "license to thrill"

made the decision on the drive...found the parts!!!! and right off the self...

i thought the cost would be more than the belt set up but after the math this way is cheaper?

the best part is the set-up is extremely simple..

its a rack and pinion drive... extremely acurate with less backlash compared to a belt..and nothing will ever need tentioning its a metal track metal gear..

that being said theres one component to this equation i have never dealt with...so i decieded to take the road less traveled..if the engineering works as designed it will be an astonishing dtg to say the least (just that one component that makes me nervous)... everything is in place the rip is setup to operate it as intended... i cant say enough about these guys they have bent over backwards for my little project and for a guy with no previous experience building dtg's...

we will see what happens when she gets together.. to be continued............

i gotta rework my math as well. my belts move about 3 times as fast as the pf surface. shot a board that was there for the purpose of going along for a test ride right out the front. the book that was on it for weight did that magic trick where you pull the tablecloth and the dishes remain. punchline: the book title was "Speedmath".

O.K. I was in a hurry. I switched a numerator and denominator. My math above is otherwise correct. the gear sizes are correct. The 12 tooth gear goes on the frontmost paper feed shaft (outboard of everything otherwise it will make contact with the head) The 30 tooth goes on the front platen shaft. And the 4- 15 tooths go on all corners of the drive system.... I ordered them from Jeffs place in the link above. I bored any that weren't bored for 5/16 shafts. it maths out to be within thousandths of an inch, seems dead on now. At least I didn't have to order different gears and wait for them! I would add that a pillow block bearing supporting that 30 tooth gear is probably a necessity in the outboard gear config... I will be adding that before I do any more testing.

so this belt system requires three belts? and a minimum of three drive shafts and 6 pulleys..wow -at least how i see it working it would require this using the original shaft.. 2 platen belts-and one belt from the pf to one of the platen drive shafts (gearing down platen speed) so you have a total of 4 belts with the original coming off the motor to the encoder?

its alot of belts eh? if you went to a fixed platen i suppose you could eliminate one of them... if your interested i have a solution for only using two belts.. just down size the shaft go with a 312 pitch pulley and drive directly off that.. then any other pulleys as idlers will not need to be sized either, you can use a small idler this way.

cant wait to see the vid of your setup....
