    I have no real helpful advice. My only observation is that whatever you quote them will probably be out of their budget and whatever they pay you will not be enough. Perhaps a solution is that you...

    For the meantime I'm living with it. I undid the twist a little, but not all the way. Might make a more serious attempt later. These are 23 x 31 screens with the 1.5" square tube frame.

    Twisted aluminum screens.

    I noticed a slight twist in a screen while printing however long ago. It still seemed to work okay. Now it seems I've got a couple more with bigger twists.

    Do you just deal with it? Shim it? Put...

    Meant to mention before, but if you were inclined to try the counterweight again I suspect yours just wasn't heavy enough. I used full quarts of ink (which works as long as you have a full quart you...

    That's one of a dozen or so systems I looked at last night. Tiling images might not be so bad if I only have one cut. I have an Epson 1400 that I might be able to repair. Just hate to put a lot of...

    Very cool kickstand. I might use something like that some day. My hanging is similar except I drilled holes through clothespins and just used wire with eye hooks. Probably a little cheaper. Not sure...

    Small world! My junior year at NIU I skipped out of class and drove 8.5 hours to catch a show at the Blue Note in Columbia.

    I keep up with Facebook stuff just because I'm trying to get my name out there, but none of the groups I'm a part of there have the vibe that this place used to have. Too many whiny collectors, not...

    I don't own an inkjet printer and my laser printer is a budget model that doesn't print smooth lines. And that means I have to go back to tiling films unless I buy a seriously expensive printer. I'd...

    I did find that the FedEx/Kinkos has a large format toner printer/copier so I got some new films. I dusted the printed layer with a clear fixative, but not that brand. Did another step test and I...

    I did cut paper for the larger fills, but the problem is that where the printer ink details are the light is getting through.

    Yes, oiled paper for all these things. Is that bad? I'm trying to save...

    And I did it again. I should have added 2:30 to 23 minutes. Still, 25:30 is a big difference from 32:30.

    I'm an idiot, but I have to head back to expose another screen to be sure how much of an idiot I am.

    During my step test above I moved the paper in 1-minute intervals and let Row 12 expose for 23...

    Well, I thought I fixed it. Much thanks for the additional coating tips. I'm still not getting good exposures with oiled paper and now I suspect that it's the density (or lack of) in the ink used...

    Ordered the QT-D emulsion. It's mixed and in my fridge now. Now I'm trying to get the humidity under control. I'm still only five months into trying to print for myself and as it gets warmer,...

    That's a crazy fast exposure to me. Is that with a transparency or oiled paper or what? With every setup I've had, this stuff seems to expose longer for me even over people that are using the same...

    New exposure unit. New problems.

    So a couple weeks back I built this makeshift unit that was an upgrade from my previous method.

    1750 at the highest setting, but I've had some oops moments at less than that. Not sure what it should be. Just picked this one up because it was $50 on craigslist.

    Just growing pains so far. Breaking my glass by using too much heat and clamping it to the screen. Discovering my pressure washer is in fact strong enough to rip screens.

    New to me. What size are the panels you're producing? And you're going to print directly onto the transparency or the film? It looks like the film is a little less transparent to help diffuse the...

    You're welcome! As I was writing it up I worried that the specifics of the wiring diagram might trip people up or that other ballast diagrams would be radically different. After looking at the other...
