    Does anyone have any tips for cleaning the gunk off printer and cutter spokes? I pick at with my fingernails or with a dull knife, but it takes forever. Any good ideas??

    Take the pen tip out of a BIC pen, or similar, and use the pen cylinder to clean off the sprokets. They fit perfectly and clean them right off, with a little help from a paper towel and some isopropyl alcohol if needed.

    Clear BIC pen with the end cap removed.
    I've heard some people use a cheap electric toothbrush.

    I used to use alcohol and a toothbrush after getting the big chunks off with a knife. :wink:

    A little adhesive remover on a Q-tip softens it and makes it much easier.
