I have since a long time a new 3880 I-refill kit from InkRepublic, but till now never got to install it mainly due to some drawbacks like too large, too much air causing banding when nearing emptiness, etc...

But as I also read that they have many advantages I decided to try to make one smaller.

Some preliminary pics :

To avoid a too long post, I made a pdf describing what I did, it's here:

Before I permanently seal the test cartridge and start "destroying" the other eight ones, please feel free to submit any further suggestion or comment.

Thanks

This looks like a great idea.
Have you considered cutting the cartridge to the same size as the orginal, while using a smaller diam. fill hole & plug in order to be able to close the printer's cover completely?
Also, have you tried it with ink for a number of days to make sure every thing holds up when the modified cartridge is pressurized?
