    Agreed. The guy wanted to ship it with all the loose parts and motor on top. I said "Please don't." Even if it's missing something, with the exception of the motor it's all dumb metal, and a little...
  4. American MasterPrint 3545 One-man squeegee unit for sale in Texas

    So I won this auction last week. But I couldn't get the shipping company to pick it up unless the seller agreed to do some comprehensive packaging, which he didn't want to do.

    Andy I was thinking that a good metal frame for a vacuum table could be salvaged from a big old aluminum screen frame. If you don't have one lying around just order one un-stretched that's the size...

    I thought about building my own with premium components, as you suggested, but then it gets kind of complicated because by the time I add a micro-reg print head, I'm up to a couple grand again and I...

    Quoted price on the 20x24 with the vacuum is about $3700. I have a line on a lightly used one with the same specs for about $2500, though I would probably not pay that much.

    I don't know about laid, but I tried to print on Arches Cover once. It's a very toothy paper, and the valleys wouldn't fill in very well.

    I like my Dahle. It'll cut up to 28". It has been sound and reliable, but of course it can only cut 1 or 2 sheets of printmaking paper at a time.

    I sign and number the front and stamp the back with a neat little art deco letterpress stamp I picked up on eBay. It's unique and kinda decorative, but unobtrusive.

    Help me out. TW is like milk compared to SB, but you still need to add water to TW and wet the screen prior to your first pull and after pauses?

    Not when you go from printing a 6.5 inch wide poster using a 13 inch coater to a 16 inch wide poster using an 18 inch coater using the same screen.

    Is it typical to reclaim with the tape still on?
