    Hey all,
    I just got off a job with a Designer I've worked with a few times, and she always gets custom gobos for the VL3500s. The best way I've found to get the gobos (wheel 1, rotating) out is to use my smallest screwdriver on my Leatherman Wave, inserted into the small half-circle on the bottom of the gobo and trying to pry out. Sometimes, they pop right out without much trouble at all, but other times it feels like I'm about to snap the ****ed thing into a thousand pieces. The manual says to "gently press on the gobo housing", but that doesn't help much at all.

    Just wondering if anyone has found any helpful tips for this.

    Hmm...that's funny.

    Exchanging gobos in our Robe ColorSpot 575's turned out to be tricky when I wanted to put some gobos into the static wheen rather than the rotating wheel...I ended up putting them all into rotating slots because it was ten times easier to remove a fixation ring than to see if taking the entire jig apart was the right way to do it....
