2024-05-01 (W) BadgeMakerRepair Making a custom belt

I bought a kit for making custom o-rings. The material was a band of 1/8" diameter nitrile rubber similar to the stock band's diameter. I was unsure about using cyanoacrylate (super glue) to hold the ends of the rubber together, but it set immediately and securely.

I tried printing again, but the black cartridge was as faint as before, which I assumed was still an issue with the draw-up belt not controlling the ribbon. I tried a color image with a brand-new CMYKO ribbon, and the result was faint, and the black was still spotty.
