Hey Guys, If you are looking for cork sheets, go to Autozone. They sell it. It's used for gasket material and comes in a roll. Ummm... Frank, I'm waiting patiently for the next video...

Hey Paul. Go to Lowes or Home Depot and get the cork shelf paper with the sticky backing. Pretty cheap and no messing with glues.

Wow awesome to see drdeath almost ready to go. I am back from Florida The Magic Kingdom for a week and was thinking about my machine most of the time. I will be building the adjustable platen to see if it was the size of the platen that threw it off during printing. I had someone but some aluminum 13x19. I will hopefully have some better news later tonight.

Well, I jumped back into it today and finally got it running. I knew I was close and kept getting a error when I went to print. Come to find out it was the driver. I reinstalled the driver and did not expect the thing to print. I turned around and it was PRINTING! Thanks to German and Spider and all the others that helped with this project. I am on cloud 9 for now until I run into another problem. But, hey it was awesome to do something you were really gun shy in doing. Sorry this thread took a dump due to work and issues. I am ready to do it again with a compact model hopefully the V3 will be out soon to view.

The monster energy didn't show any watermark. What did you print it with ? a RIP or the epson driver?

Thanks,
I kind of lagged on it was busy with work. Check out German13 thread "license to thrill", Its a great thread and people are great there. Page 36 should be the plans for the V2 R1900. I built the thing and have not printed anything in awhile have been doing a bunch of screen printing.
any questions let me know.
Brian

See if you can translate again so we can try and help. Or you can put this in your language and I can try and translate with something besides google translate.

Thanks
