I would be concerned about sending any coated paper stock through a printer when it is wet, so I assume by 28 pound inkjet paper you mean some bond paper designed for inkjet and not a piece of coated paper.
We use Hammer mill 28 lb. 98 bright inkjet paper, available at Staples or Office Max. When moistening the paper hold the Windex bottle about 12" away and lightly fog the paper 2-3 times from left to right and keep the ends dry. Do not soak the paper until it's dripping, only enough to moisten the paper. We have done this many times when servicing printers that have dry glazed rollers or rollers stained with ink and it is by far the quickest and easiest way to restore them.
I just received my CIS from MIS for my 1280 printer. Everything seemed to be in the box. Late last night I went to install it and half way through the procedure I found that I didn't receive the proper caps for the ink bottles. From what I can tell the "shipping caps" are the same as the "normal caps" except the "normal caps" have a hole for the ink supply tube and a vent hole. I can tell what size to use to drill a hole for the ink supply tube, but what size hole do I need drill to make a vent hole?
I can call MIS on Monday to have them send me the
proper caps, but I don't want to wait a week to start to use this set up.
We are a manufacturer of CIS systems here in the US and our vent hole is the smallest number drill in a numbered drill set or the smallest you can get in a metric or SAE set. You can also take a sewing needle and hold the needle with a pair of pliers, heat it with a match or propane torch and insert it through the top of the plastic cover. The smaller the hole the better to prevent dust from contaminating the ink.
