and you thought gas was high how bout 5376.00 a gallon for ink printers,

hi folks, thanks for stopping by,, when i started some time ago,, many of the cartridges were larger, (the top photo is the smaller cartridges and the lower one is the larger one) in fact there is an hp printer today that i use that is 12-14 years old, its a workhorse, the cartridges hold 5-10 times more then the new stuff out today, and in fact all the dvd cover and anything to do with my woodcarving shows all have been printed on theses machines,, its like the old say from timex it just keeps going,, if you have a printer today,, most are not as durable as the old 900 series , the old 900 series in fact back when the first came out, cost about 200 -300 for a printer,, but now i can find them for 10-50 either on ebay or at a flea market, and you will have to purchase a cable that will run about 40 so that you can plug it into a usb port, well yes you run the chance of getting a printer that no longer works but if you happen to run across one of these get one,, now the ink in a black cartridge is 42cc the new ones today, can be as low as 4-12 ccs depending on what your using,, its amazing,, let put a price on the 42 cc cost about 37.00 the new ones cost 14-19 dollars,, but if you had to buy say four of the smaller ones you would be spending about 96.00 verses 37.00 or if it has 5-6 cc costing about 14 it would take ten of them at a cost of 140.00 verses 37.00 ,, isnt that amazing,, and we are worried about gas prices,, if you got a gallon of ink and you bought enough cartridges to make one gallon of ink it would cost you 5376 dollars yes that is five thousand three hundred and seventy six dollars, here is how that is done
one gallon = 128 ounces x 30cc in each ounce =3840 /10 cc of ink in each cartridge some are less then ten =384 cartridges x 14.00 each cartridge cost in the store =5376.00
amazing,, so the next time you get a new printer ask what cartridge does it use and how much does it hold,, not how many pages they claim that it prints, happy printing or carving, arleen
