Start your build by laying out your support board like the photo below. Use the drawing to see where to put your lines.

Next add your back, Tunnel Sides, and front part. I recommend using a brad nailer if you have one, use 1 ¾” brads. If not use the drywall screws and PRE DRILL! I split a few parts with the drywall screws. The brad nailer worked real well and is very tight!
NOTE If this is a keeper, paint all parts before assembly! This is a learning step for me for my next build for a different purpose in the art world, so no paint needed. You need to paint yours!

OK let’s add some rails! If you are using the rails I used from Lowes place them on the floor of the box and draw a line above them. This is the rail mount line. Now place another rail on top of that rail and make it 4 1/2” from the back of the box. Mark your holes with a sharpie. See photos below. Drill the holes with the 13/64 bit. This bit gives a very snug fit. Repeat on the other side. Do not mount the rails yet.

I want to restate this is my first build. I will be making corrections if they are brought to my attention, and or by the school of hard knocks as I go. So if you are building along you have been warned. I intend to document everything. Going to bed now good night all! More on Tuesday.

Here is a link to the clue book posted by Spiderx. I have used this to get a lot of information.

Hey just bought a new r1800 with out the printhead on ebay. Feel better about hacking on a junker to start and having parts just in case. Not sure if it is a good deal or not just works for me and my mission of documentation.

A little costly, but better safe then sorry. Look closely you can get 2200, or r1900 cheep as well. have you figured where to cut the pe sensor slot. i just put the drawer together. I'm using the cheep wood to start just because don't want to mess up better practice cheap. you should try craigslist in your area. heck i just picked up a fully functional epson stylus pro 4000 for $150.

Thanks to ZANONE we now have a link to the exploded view of the R1900. I will have my nephew draw in to 3D CAD the relevant parts with dimensions.


Wont show up just click to see it. It is a PDF file.

Any input you can give like this is so welcomed and helpful to everyone!

Thank you Zanone!
