This sounds reasonable to me too, but what is the 'little funnel'? Is that
something you buy at a drugstore along with the syringe? The folks at

I am using MIS inks. Don't know where I got the idea they were OEM. Just

The product number is ESC800. They are not their archival inks, but the ones
meant to simulate Epson's.
