Better than nothing

The results of replacing the repaired ribbon cable are promising. Perhaps I killed the cartridge running it with the broken cable and so only some jets are firing? I will try again with the proper cart and binder.

This is a layer from the middle of a demo object consisting of a chain and a little disk stating the build time. But it should not be so stripy!


  1. Just letting you know I'm very much enjoying your updates here.

    I have an old unloved z501 that I reconditioned back in the day, and reliving the frustrations of bringing in back online through your blog is bringing back very fond memories.

    I wish you the best of luck!

  2. Thanks! Feel free to chip in with advice if you have any. I ordered ink but we have a 4 day weekend because of the jubilee and I have no chance of getting them until Wednesday, probably Thursday or later :( Sucking on the nozzles did not seem to help much :)
