    Can't see myself wearing headlight in customers office but do use once in awhile in shop.

    I would say my flashlight (small police style LED $45) is 2nd most used tool in my bag, with my cordless screwdriver being 1st. Used to use small Brinkman flashlight but the tiny bulbs burnt out to fast. With LED never have to replace bulb.

    I had a few clients that kept getting dog-earing as well on the printed pages, it was due to toner build up on these exit rollers as well. At first I thought fuser unit, I removed it to inspect it and seen the exit rollers had toner build up on them, I removed the built up toner, problem resolved.

    I see a few posts about lights, back in the day, when I had great eye sight, I would just use a flash light, now that I am pushing 50, I finally had to come to the realization that I now need readers to work on machines, especially for e clips, etc. I broke down and bought this item, I love it! It has made a world of difference when needed.

    Cool video, I have a friend who does this work on jewellery, has his whole garage turned into a ring and necklace making studio, just like this guy. He does it all by hand,he said it's a dying art, his work is being replaced by machines and AI.

    Lights

    I use a USB led light - No need for batteries as most MFPs have a usb port and I also have a battery bank (pocket size) for when the machine has no power.

    Oh yea even with light I need reading glasses. I fought it for years until my arms wern't long enough anymore. Starting using them around 15 yrs ago and made a big difference. Doesn't matter how much light you have if your friggin eyes are bad you need glasses. ha-ha

    I always tell myself I would rather need just reading glasses then have to wear them all the time. Reg eyesight is good, thank God.

    Re: Bizhub "4" series tip

    Just wanted to add a bit to this thread. This is a common problem with the earlier 4e units that had the black rollers. The rollers were changed out to clear (white?) later on and the toner doesn't build up on these. For those that have experienced the buildup, it WILL return again.

    What I've been doing is LOWERING the fuser temp by 1 notch (I believe it is -5 degrees), and have not had any further issues with toner buildup on the rollers. I also haven't had any problems with toner adhesion on the paper, so unless your customers are running thicker paper at the wrong setting (plain), you should have no issues with making this settings change.

    Just thought I would say, was at a customer and pulled this off the exit roller of a BH364e.

    I actually just had to clean off 3 of the 4 rollers in a C284e this past Thursday. Very low volume machine, so this uint had never gotten my fuser temp modification as this was it's first service call; crinkles on pages and noise. Lowered the temp and don't expect to see that problem again.
