Any printer should work. I'm using a cheap Canon inkjet. You just feed it labels instead of paper. I have a Xerox XE80 laser printer that needs some sort of fixing (one side prints too dark, ) if you want it. (I think I still have it...gotta look) This is a thermal fusing process as opposed to the inkjets spray and dry process. Very solid on high gloss stock.

Yeah - I have a Canon inkjet as well. I was thinking in the long run that a thermal printer would be cheaper. My Canon goes through ink pretty fast :/

Mine does too. Got a refill kit and just keep refilling the black with the included syringe. Don't use the colors. The jets in the cartridge are holding up fine after 4 fills and the printing is crisp. Interested to see how far it will go. makes for some real cheap printing.

That's a good idea. Just need it for black really anyway, and refilling the cartridges is probably way cheaper than buying new ones.

VW beetle tire jack

Anyone in NoCo have an old VW Bilstein jack that I can borrow or have? I want to understand how the mechanisms work. Pictures only go so far.

Trailer rim and tire

I need one, maybe two, ST 175/80 D13 tire on a 13x5jj rim to replace a damaged one. The rim is 5 hole at 4.5"

Thanks!

New To Riding and Looking For Good Used Gear

Well sort of new to it... I've ridden around town and out in pastures but that's about the extent of it. Back then jeans (ok sometimes shorts) a shirt (well maybe I went shirtless a few times) and whatever was on my feet at that given moment always seemed like 'gear' enough.

Anyways I'm looking for a helmet (size medium). And might be interested in pants, shirt/jacket, gloves, and boots if they're not too much. I'm about 5'9" 150lbs if that helps. Waist 30 Length 32. Shirts/Jacket Medium. Gloves Medium.

As I'm doing just low speed trail riding, short trips to the corner store, and such at the moment that's the reason for lower priority on the boots, pants, shirt/jacket, and gloves. As I get more comfortable with taking the bike on longer rides I'll get the other stuff, but for now a helmet is my main concern.

Thumb VW beetle tire jack

Hellsickle, I have one of the jacks you are looking for. Do you want to come over and see how it works? Pretty cool how they work, it's all about angles working against a smooth pipe like surface. Close tolerance machining is the main ingredient to make it all work. I can try to send you a video of it working if you like, or come on over and see it.

Looking for a cheap, reliable car that can get me to Boulder from Denver for 10 weeks starting in May. I don't care if it's ugly, beat up, rusty or full of dirt as long as it starts, runs and is good on gas.
