I have an Epson 9500, that's been sitting idle for about a year. I believe there are a couple clogged heads. Other than that it was working fine about a year ago.
I live in the hills around Santa Cruz, Calif.. If someone is willing to pick it up (i just blew a disc, so i won't be able to help), they can have it free of charge. they will have to carry it from the 2nd floor. There are 2 spindles (regular and high tension). there's no promise that it works, but it can also be used as a source of spare parts for anyone else running a 9500/9000
