Now I can see the level of Ink in My 3880 Cone Cartridges without removing them.
Apr 8, 2013

This morning I completed a simple Mod. to allow me to see the level of ink in My 3880 80mm Cone Cartridges.
I used my Milling Machine & 1/2 end mill to remove a part of the outer layer of plastic from the right side of the back of the Cartridges, I can now see the level of the ink without removing the Cartridges for refill.
I am already using a hole at the top of the Cartridges for refill. In order to get the Cartridges filled to the top, I tilt the 3880 backward when I am putting in ink.
(As usual, this may not work for you. I am just letting you know the solution I came up with).
