    I don't get what you are saying. You don't want the rings snug fit on the magnets. The idea is that they are attached to the bottom of the print plate and sit over the magnets to prevent movement. There should be no resistance between the printed rings and the magnets so that the print plate can be removed easily without throwing off the alignment.

    Also, I don't see how markings on the rings would help since they won't be on the magnets when you are making the adjustments.

    So another problem that I have had on a couple of cartridges is the clips that hold the cartridge in the printer breaking.

    Has anyone seen a fix for this? If not, I will have to see if I can find a way to print a solution.

    That is what happened to me trying to remove a cartridge while printing, or cooling, or anytime it is executing a process.
    Never happened when I was "allowed" to remove the cartridge. I went so far to see what was locking the clips during printing!

    Best fix is new case. I have plenty (okay, 2)... want one? Just swap the chip out.
    edit: it just needs a pivot so it has a defined radius when you press on it.

    Back on subject... 22" on the tube mod?

    Thank you but I have a few cartridges. I really want to find a fix though because I don't want to keep having to change the cartridges when this happens. Sometimes it is very difficult to remove them.

    You mean the length that the tube needs to be? If so, yes 22" works well for me.

    Maybe its just me I seem to catch it when it simply won't "release" for whatever reason.
