Printing Systems

mx922 printer – its huge! can scan/copy pages, print dvd’s and smaller business card size stuff. has refillable cartridges on ebay with reset arc chips. might try to automate the printing dvd’s part currently they clip into a removable tray. picked out my xmas present on kijiji for 80 dollars.
first print on old dvd’s with glabel on linux. probably going to be ordering plexdisk water resistant glossy disks from newegg soon. as you can see there are alignment issues.

dvd storage is said to be good anywhere from 20 – 200 years so this was a good investment.

the reason for getting this was because lightscribe media is non existent for blueray and dvd dl still as of 2018.
photosmart 5510 working bulk ink setup – nice lite printer for regular printing, fastest and highres too.


aftermarket refillable cartridges with their own chips from ebay, installed them into my photosmart 5510 printer they work very well and dont have any issues the bulk ink hosed versions have plugging up gravity and head pressure issues.

The titan DVD’s I bought feel really hot and make your hands sweat. could be chemicals or radiation on them.

might be possible to use the squirt bottles of koolaid to make replacement ink for printers, would just need to add a bit of alcohol and water mix to it ? maybe food coloring water alcohol mix has been done already ? or maybe no water is used to prevent rusting.
