I agree that this sounds like a good idea, but....

I'm afriad I can't see myself ripping open a 1270
cart, using the ink to refill an empty ESCII cart
(especially since I don't HAVE any empty ESC II
carts).  I have my doubts that the new ink would work
in the old printer anyway.

All comparing the old printer to the new one would do
is prove or disprove Dan Crane's blanket statement
that the x70 printers have equal gas-fastness to other
Epson printers.
