I thought that you zapped a print head about a year or so ago, long before you built up your courage to try refilling once again, more recently. > I believe I also encountered posts from you, or > Tomcat, or ?? saying that pure alcohol was *not* > a good flushing agent -- but rather, to use > distilled water, with perhaps a few percent of > alcohol in the mix. I have posted possible problems with isopropanol, which could be interpreted as "warnings", but I have never "forbidden" the use of isopropanol as a flushing agent. I believe that John Mills of www.WeInk.com, years ago, also posted warnings for different reasons (along the lines of "does isopropanol dissolve the print head assembly glue?"), but then recanted those warnings. I would be comfortable with a 1:1 (or better yet a 1:2) dilution of 70% isopropanol with distilled water, as a flushing agent. > This leads me to another topic.

At $5 to $10 per blank, the best way to start over is to get a new virgin blank. -- Ben Haskell - Please turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
