Yes it would be fine but don't forget to print some test print on paper before you take apart of it and do nozzle check if print head is in good condition or not, if it is not you better fine another one because the price of R1900 print head is almost the same price with new R1900 (after rebate, that what I heard).

The nozzel check is in the properties part of the print driver under the mantainance tab. Just pull up a picture and click on print and select that printer to print with and then click on the "properties" button and then the mantainance tab anf it is there.

Its always best to buy an epson refurb.. from epson online directly..

this way you know your getting a brand new printer for between 349-379.00

most of the used 1900 on ebay are trash.. why else would they sell it.. it usually has an issue and most of the time its a clogged printhead (the most expensive part)

I am also doing a 2200 build before i do a R1900 build. I've done C88 already with success. I would like to see more detailed instructions on the ASF modification. I don't want to cut it up wrong .

Think I may of found the perfect platen board at Walmart. It is a plastic cutting board, a little oversized although I can cut down. Will post more info tonight.

HDPE is a good choice, basically the same a cutting board. Masonite in thin sheet works good too. If you bend it it will always return to being flat, won't warp and it's cheap.

Ok I do believe it is HDPE and its only $11:00! It measures 15" wide X 20" long and 3/8" thick. You can find it in the household section and this stuff cuts on a normal table saw or chop saw with a normal blade. I will be cutting this in the morning. Need to study the clue book! And yes lots of photos, measurements and descriptions. Walmart Stock number 84297109219

Ok, like I said I went to Walmart and bought the plastic cutting board. My nephew Nick was not here this weekend so I stepped into Google Sketchup and took it for a spin. I did my best although Nick will clean it up. The first step is to do a little shopping and mark up your cutting board. You are going to need 20 #4 X 1” wood screws ¾” would work fine, and 4 10-24x1” Machine Screws, You can use the locking nuts from the bag you purchased earlier in the project. Get out your sharpie and mark up the board as follows.

Now that you have marked up your board you need to cut it up. The first cut is to take the sides off. Mark the 12 1/2 “ center very carefully, it is the most important part, cut it out of the center. I used a table saw. I cleaned the edges by scraping a razor blade backwards along the sides. Get it as soon as you take it off the saw the plastic is still very soft.

We now need to drill the 4 holes to attach the platen to the aluminum angle. Measure 3” down each side and use your sharpie to make a mark about 3/16” from the side. Do this for all 4 corners. Use your m13/64” drill from earlier in the project to drill these 4 holes. I personally used a hand drill although would of preferred a drill press to keep the holes straight.


As you can see this can get a bit messy so make sure to clean up as you go!

Here is a drawing of the platen we are building so you can see where this project is going.
