    Oh good! Yeah, that DIY kit is a lower profile.
    Plus, I'm using 20x24 screens so I do have to have the platen back further, etc.
    Good luck with everything!

    I originally built this drying cabinet to mount my press atop, but liked the IKEA island height and never switched over.

    Ha! Yes, it IS tall! I am tall. My back loves it.

    I tried it both ways; casters in the front and casters in the back.
    Didn't really make a difference once I added the cinder blocks.

    Ha! That was my old place. I'm the anal retentive printer. Not a drop of ink spilled!

    These angles produced noticeable moire at 50lpi and the colors were a lot more subdued.
