I got a Canon iP3000 because of various comments here about the ease
with which it's carts could be refilled.

Where can I found out about doing this and what are the better third
party ink to use with it.

Listen to Burt & Tony and the other pros in this ng as they have years
of real world experience and will not give you bad advice.
On the other hand Mesershit has only owned 2 printers in his short and
very disturbed life and really knows nothing about printers, oem vs 3rd
party ink carts and refills. He claims he does but the entire ng has
caught him in so many outright lies that no one believes anything he says.
My advice, go with the pros and you'll be very glad you did.

Take the time to read all info at
http://www.neilslade.com/papers/inkjetstuff.html and follow all of the
links he provides on printer information. That is where I got the initial
information to start refilling Canon carts. I have been using MIS refill
inks which have excellent color match to OEM. There are several people who
post on this NG who use Formulabs inks. If you set your view to sort by
sender and look for a very long post by me you will see the names of several
vendors who sell carts prefilled with Formulabs inks, and those inks are
available bulk from Alotofthings' ebay store. You can read down the posts
in this NG for some basic tips. MIS and other ink vendors have refilling
instructions available on line. www.nifty-stuff.com/forum/ is a forum that
explores third party inks and carts in detail and is a very friendly site
for people who have questions about these products or need help trouble
shooting printer/ink problems weather they use OEM or third party inks. Ask
if you have any questions after following up on the above info.

Highly recommend www.inkjetsaver.com.
They have everything you will need, as well as fairly inventive and
effective techniques. I've used their ink for several years in 3 Canon
printers. Also suggest you invest in the cleaning kit they sell, it will
clear virtually any clog.

That is alotofcrap. Find a source some other place that can be trusted.

Listen to Burt, he has no axe to grind. Try the websites he mentions and judge

Measekite is this newsgroups resident troll and stalker, he grinds his own axe,

Tony the Tiger is in this industry making money from people like you.
Be careful to what he says. He is doing general lobbying for his
craft. When there is money to be made you need to watch who is
promoting what.

Measekite takes every opportunity to knock the third party ink vendors, and
Alotofthings in particular. He has never used third party inks nor has he
purchased from any of these vendors. He didn't like the email response he
got from Alotofthings, called their web site unprofessional, and didn't want
to do business with them as they only sold, at that time, through ebay. It
also upsets him that they purchase ink made by a manufacturer and they
rebottle or repackage it under their own label and sell it as their product.
That is why he continues to steer people away from them and call them names.
All I can say is that there are posts on this NG from people who have been
extremely satisfied with their products and the service the firm provided.
Listen to people who have actually done business with them and used their
products. Look for posts by a man names Ron Cohen. He uses these inks and
has had no problems with them. Also Taliesyn - he has used Formulabs inks
and would purchase from Alotofthings if they shipped to Canada. I have had
no problems with MIS inks. The two sites I gave you have a few other inks
you can look into as well, plus a wealth of information on maintenance and
cleaning of the print head. As far as Measekite is concerned, just look at
his childish responses and language and judge for yourself how valid his
criticism of the ink vendors is. Do educate yourself by reading through
this NG plus the two sites I gave you as there is great info on inks, carts,
and printer maintenance. Nifty-stuff forum is extremely friendly and people
will answer your questions and help you through the process. Very important
that you do your reading first as it makes no sense for them to have to tell
you thinks you can learn yourslef first.

Burt's advice is absolutely correct. There are many online vendors selling
third party cartridges and some sell high quality bulk ink as well.
Alotofthings.com is one of them. They also have an eBay store and the prices
are better than from the web store. That's who I use and they are
excellent - nothing that measekite says about them (or most anything else)
should be believed. Refilling Canon BCI-3 or BCI-6 tanks involves nothing
more than capping the ink outlet, making an opening in the reservoir,
injecting bulk ink with a syringe and then resealing the opening. Some tanks
have rubber plugs on top for sealing and resealing the fill hole. Other
users make a small hole and then reseal it with a variety of methods - tape,
Plasti-Tac, hot melt glue, set screws, nylon screws, etc... I now use a
slightly different method which is making an opening on the upper side of
the reservoir and then resealing it with duct tape. The point is that there
are many ways of achieving the same end result and it's more a matter of
personal preference than anything else. Use a quality ink, i.e. MIS or
Formulabs and refilling will lower your printing costs so much that ink
consumption will become a non-issue for you.

Tony the Tiger is a reseller. He is a lobbyist spammer. Do not listen
to him. Burt will tell you what the tinkerers want to hear that are in
this NG. Some of what he says makes sense and some does not. Frankie
Crankie is a real shmuck. If your print load is high enough to justify
3rd party inks then you have the daunting task of selecting a
manufacturer. There are no manufacturers that I know of that sell under
their own BRAND name. Just a bunch of webstore labels.

It is unfortunate that you cannot go to an Office Depot and find a 3rd
party manufacturer that sells under its own name. Then you could go to
Staples and Office Max and likely find the same product and compare
prices. The quality of the ink would not be hidden in the marketplace
under a bunch of store labels where most of the vendors will not tell
you (especially in writing) what they are selling you.

For what ever reason I cannot find any where on their website them
disclosing who the manufacturer/fformulator BRAND of ink they are
reselling under an unknown label.

If the ink is so good why do you need a cleaning kit?

It is true that I have not owned my Canon IP4000 for more than 8 months
(no clogs using Canon ink) and that my HP has carts that include a
printhead; but I have used my HP, at times infrequently, and have also
never had a head clog. I have, begrudgingly, always paid the overprice
high cost of using only HP ink carts.

I don't waste time providing support in the newsgroup. I simply post
links and let people call. The reason why so many are willing to
support me is that many have spoken to me by phone before they buy
anything.

The original poster wanted to know how to refill them and where to get
supplies. They did not ask for specific recommendations. I provided
what they asked for. So its not spam.

Besides why give away valuable information for free on the web? I
prefer person to person communication, without the trolls, flamers, and
everyone who seems to have more opinions than sense.
