The question of which or what kind of table to put the huge Epson 4900 seems to come up quite often. I faced the same problem last April when I decided to jump off the deep end, sell my little-used R1800 and get the 4900. It is not just a question of the size of the 4900 but its hernia inducing weight. I found a solution that works very well and cost $69.95. It is a 32" TV stand sold at Sears and made for a tube tv. It holds 135lbs and comes in maple or cherry finish. The link is:http://www.sears.ca/product/32-tv-stand/601-000222711-47837GMY
If the link doesn't work, go to sears.ca and type the item number 01301596910 in the search.
I got the idea of what support to install it on from watching Jim Richardson's Youtube video on the 4900. I really liked how low that big printer was in his studio, making it easy to change rolls and watching the show as it prints. This table fits the 4900 feet perfectly and overall is slightly narrower. I do NOT use the wheels, the table sits directly on the carpet with the top of the 4900 level with my computer table. Unlike Jim's studio, mine is the size of a small walk-in closet with a 7.5 ft ceiling. I use the bottom shelf for all the office cabling, internet, router, etc.
Another question that comes up is what kind of cover to put over the 4900 as I also have a cat hair problem. My solution for this cost $14.95 at Princess Auto and it is their 'Power Fist' brand Air Conditioner Cover, item number 8262842. It measures 30*34*30", 600 denier with PVC coating. Even comes with a drawstring.
