Canon Pro 100 Cli-42 Cartridge Modification Tools/Resources
3

After reviewing several Jose Rodriguez videos on YouTube regarding best practices on how to modify Canon Pro 100 Cli-42 cartridges and all things pertaining to 3rd Party Inks (Precision Colors), I have put together a few links which will hopefully cut down on the amount of time to find the tools that are needed to get the job done.

Here's my List:

I am currently using Precision Colors Signature Inks which can be found here:

https://www.precisioncolors.com/PC42.html

Here's a link to Precision Colors Canon Pro 100 Accessories where one
can find refill plugs, syringes, storage clips, squeezy bottles and needles.

Here's a great hand held drill that will accept various drill bit sizes:

Here's another Hand Held Drill by Fiskars that has the drill bits that are needed for this job.

Here's a great Carpenter's Awl from Octoink.co.uk This will make it
easier to remove the ball from the Cli-42 cartridges.

These are nice adapters that fit over the end of my 30cc syringes. They
are very useful for flushing the cartridges.

I have found that Piezoflush on Inkjetmall.com is a nice alternative to
Windex. A 220ml bottle can be found here:

I have found this small table vice on Ebay.com just the right size to
hold the Cli-42 cartridges.

Here's the Exacto Knife that I use to get to the ball on the Cli-42
carts. It can be found on Ebay or your local Walmart.

Here's a link to the 5/32" drill bit that is needed to finish out the
hole for filling the Cli-42 cartridges.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/DEWALT-DW1310-5-32-Titanium-Speed-Tip-Drill-Bit-USA-2-Packs/400986567105?epid=1200826025&hash=item5d5ca971c1:g:674AAOSwhOVXf8cP

Here's what I'm using to dry out my Cli-42 Cartridges. Just pour about half of the bottle into a plastic bag and let your cartridges sit in them for two days. They should weigh about 13.6 grams when they are ready to be refilled. Silica Gel Beads:

Here's a Digital Scale to weigh your cartridges after the cleaning and modification process.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Small-Mini-Digital-Pocket-Scale-2000g-x-0-1g-Weight-Jewelry-Gold-Silver-Coin-OZ/282526140486?epid=547036431&hash=item41c7dec846:g:He8AAOSwjDZYmHO6&frcectupt=true

I hope this list of items can help a new user get started and they can
use these links as known items that will work with the process of
modifying the Cli-42 carts.
