Searching for Epson Pro 3880 empty cartridge chips

This might be a strange request, but I am desparate seeking for the OEM chips of original Epson Pro 3880 chips, most notably for the following chips:

-Vivid Magenta (T580A)
-Vivid Light Magenta (T580B)

If you have just have or going to swap your empty cartridges for new one. Do not throw them away....I will pay for it. The reason Is I need those chips for my refill system and I am still short of those two essential chips.

Best regards,

I noticed the Cone Color inks site has the chips for sale. However, (to me) the price per chip seemed to be rather expensive.

Those prices are completely crazy. $20 for an old chip !!! I rather buy a complete new cartridge instead.....

There must be members here who use original cartridges and are willing to cut off the chip of disposed empty cartridges and send it to me for a quite reasonable tip....

I know this source: NOT an option for me because price is completely crazy

I would rather pull out the ink of brand new cartridges and put it in my refill system.

Haha...what if the chip owners think $20 is a reasonable tip?

Apotheker:

I posted a response to your original request on the Inkjet Printer forum 12 days ago--did you not see it?

I purchased a set of 3880 chips from Cone ~15 mos ago @$5 each--last week I noted their full set of 9 for $95--2 days ago it went up to $180 for 9. Must be the upward spiraling of the gold on the pins!
