Yeah but they still made money on the equipment. Nothing is free.

Free advice is rarely good advice.

5% x 0 still equals zero.

All of the Epsons I have used like to clog. High volume of work seems to keep them the cleanest. 

I'm currently using a 9900 Spectroproof. I get the most problems out of it when I don't run it every day. Like now, I have a 4 day weekend and it is dry and smokey... it will and like a mofo on Tuesday, if I don't do a cleaning.

This place is pretty awesome. Most shops will not have the problem we are experiencing. There's a lake of beer flooding out of the secret bar they built in here. Apparently a tapper line ruptured or something. The CSR area is partially flooded, and it is leaking out of a wall into the shop area.
