Setting up an used Roland bn20

Post by Michellepatrik » Sat Dec 29, 2018 7:45 pm

Hello,
I recently bought a Roland BN20 , used.
This machine was washed, flushed ( I have been told so ) and stored .
I know what everyone will tell me about the risks. I took In consideration even the possibility that may need a new head, but I have my reasons to believe that won’t be necessary. The person that had it was in a terrible accident and they had to sell everything, he stored it with the intention to reuse it after two month away .
So I bought this machine in UK and planing to take it with me in Greece in three month time from now . I will set up this machine there , so I need to know some things .The cartridges that came with are not plugged into the machine , and the only accessories I have are the cables, the cutting blade, holder , and that’s it.
The two of the cartridges seems to be empty .
Now my question is what do I need to buy to have things ready for a technician to come to my place when I will go to Greece .
I bought separate from the same person the caps , and four dampers I believe they are called.i also have a good amount of swabs .( 10 packs) and 1 litre of cleaning liquid .
I have read about cleaning cartridges , and dummy cartridges . Could anyone help me out on this ? I would prefer to buy them from UK as I could see in Greece things are more expensive . Also what is the best size of ink to use on this model ? So anything please help me out on this .
Thank you for taking time to read this long post !
Wish you guys the best for 2019 !

Cartridge wise, you should use the 220cc. What inktype have you got with the machine, you can purchase ink through any of our dealers either here or in Greece.
