    So... replaced a maintenance station? If so... used a factory one, or bought an aftermarket one? Experience, price, etc?

    It's time on our 1304, and been debating which way go.

    I fitted an aftermarket one about 10 months ago and still going strong.
    Only issue I had was the wiper was a lot stiffer than original and was flicking ink everywhere but was easily replaced.
    Huge saving over original, and to look at an exact copy.

    I don't know about the cost - replaced mine with an OEM unit.
    It is dead easy to change out.
    Just a couple of screws and reset of the pump life counter.
    It is laid out step by step in the service guide.
    If you don't have a copy PM me your email and I can send you one.

    I replaced mine with an OEM about 5 years ago, I just replaced the capping station earlier this year. I really wish I would of bought an extra print head back then also, I cant believe the prices they are charging now a days.

    Replaced the MS on our 1204 last spring. Not very difficult if you are mechanically inclined. *BTW - I went with OEM.
