I'm pretty sure the "Time Limitation" Doesn't start till you actualy install the EK RIP. I hope so anyway. I've had mine downloaded for a little over a month already. I just haven't installed it yet.

Yeah, I would wait till your ready then install it. Usually trials start once you install it and run the program.

Alright, got the printer apart carefully. Snipping the channel for the shirt platen to fit under the print head. My metal snips have seen there day so might have to go out and buy some new ones tonight. Maybe phone a friend save cash. Removed the decoder wheel, scraped it clean with scissors. Almost there to start the ASF and the pulley build. Getting excited to see it come this far. Note be cautious with the PE switch. I can see how people snap it.

On the 1400, the PE sensor is an optical do-dad with a lever that moves out from between the optical part when the paper goes through. It should be able to be jury rigged even if the lever part gets broke or you decide to make the platen or platen tray work it. It is in the "closed" or blocked position without paper and open when paper goes through. The first picture is the switch as it set without any paper present and the second one, my hand is holding the lever that moves clear of the optical part when paper is present in the printer path during printing.

Got back to it today I started to build the ASF. I cut out the right and left sides for the ASF. I made some hard lines with a marker to get my cuts correct. (check the clue book for better pics of the right and left sides to cut out.) I used a hack saw blade and that worked really well with the cuts. Cut down the ASF rods. Ran down to Lowes and bought threaded rod 3 inches long 1/4 inch wide. Bought some epoxy too but will hold off on the final glue till I set up the ASF mount and space it out. I did post a question on the License to thrill board regarding the small yellow ASF Board. There is a short Blue and short white cable coming out of it, not sure if this is needed or can be unplugged. I know that ASF Board will be placed by the mother board for the ASF. Let you know when I get some word on that and will edit this with the answer.


Answer: (German 13) License to Thrill
these are needed!! so depending on your position of mother board will need to be extended..mine did!

Question
German what gauge wire does it need I have a soldering gun to splice them together.

Answer (German 13) License to Thrill
what i did is just match the gage where you buy your supply.. then just pop the original wire out of the platic connectors.. then pop the new wire at the length needed back in... no soldering just new wire..
