Everything you need is here in the forums and the 1900 clue book. Remember the clue book is just that a clue. Measurments are a guide only.

Got most of it i bought a kit from inkcart.com used them for r1800 ink and cartridges no problem bought a kit for unclogging heads with big needle and rubber tube works fine but slow.

Yea. I never like particle board. I am using a half sheet of 1/2 inch birch plywood. Almost $30 but it is pretty stable. I aalsso got the drill bits for pre drilling pilot holes to save from splitting anything. Just have to be carefull to not overtighten anything. I will be using wood glue along with the screws during assembly.

Particle board is different from mdf.
I dont like either. 1/2 inch birch is a good choice.
Mdf must be sealed to prevent swelling.

I used a brad nailer after I saw splitting from screws and it worked well!
