Staring at the plans tonight and the printer. Back and forth back and forth. I will do a test print and check to see how this beast runs. I am looking to take it apart on my next day off from work. Good looking printer hate to take it apart. But, this is for the greater good of a DTG printer next to my screen printing equipment. I read more of German13's tread and it looked for awhile he was messing with different types of inks that could run through the print heads. I guess he stopped because then EKrip came into his life. The prints from the videos where a lot more vivid.

I did the same thing had them cut it for me. Then tried to get them in the back window of the Expedition. Those pieces are pretty heavy.

a buddy and i started this build last week, so far we have all the materials bought and the printer torn down. it wasn't to bad getting the printer apart but it took lots of staring and head scratching to figure out how some things were held together. once we get a day without a ton of rain we will be cutting the wood and starting our assembly.

this is our first experience with building/modifying anything as well as our first time doing anything involving t-shirts or printing so its been quite a steep learning curve but these plans have been extremely helpful. if 2 college kids with 0 experience can do this anyone should be able to.

There will be 3 of us building about the same time. I just got the email from SDP said they shipped my parts from NY. So that will be about 5 days from NY to Ca. Tear down soon.

Well I broke over and got a 1900 off ebay and can't wait to get printing. I will be following this with great detail and hope to be up and running soon! Can someone please post a pic of the detail of a shirt printed with one of these beasts? All the vids are blurry and tend to not be close enough to see the true detail of the print.

What kind of transfers are you using for the 1900? We have a 1400 we use for transfers and only use jpss but get amazing color with Cobra Refill Pigment Carts.
