Let's call it $500. It's a bit kludgy, though. I'm very impressed with the work and seriously considering giving it a whirl, particularly because there's a local Craigs List ad for a 1430 for $120, knocking that price down to under $400. But it still looks a bit awkward to run a shirt through. So what's a $500 turnkey DTG?


I was figuring $100 for hardware and wood. $30 for manual. Looking for an RIP to get started.

I went ahead an purchased DIY Manual today and started tear down of a new 1430.
