    Good tip. The size I bought barely fits my smaller frames so I'll have to upgrade to the jumbo at some point. And it's hassle enough getting them in and out of there that I might build a vacuum...

    Hazaa for space bags! That did the trick! Also got a fresh quart of Ulano QTX, but the improved contact really made a difference. I tried the method with the black cloth before buying space bags this...

    I've got a full size extra fridge in the basement...right next to the screen coating room. Just haven't kept it running to save energy. Might have to change that and pick up a couple space bags, too.

    Very cool stuff. I can't wait to have a printer like that, but just doesn't make sense for me now.

    Thanks for the input! I do not have a vacuum. I use the foam on top of the foamcore, but I can see how a less rigid material would be better. I do make a practice of just taping the film on one side...

    Replaced the bulb and gave it another try. The middle row looks much better, but now the bottom row looks bad with lots of details not washing out and others getting blown out. I'll post a picture...

    Uneven exposure. Is this bulb the culprit?

    For the last few screens I've burned I've been getting the feeling that my exposure unit has hot and cold spots. For some images I've been able to make it work and get a "good enough" screen, but I'm...

    Yeah, I have a similar setup and found increasing the distance of the bulbs to the glass from 6" to 6.5" helped. I'm getting mostly good exposues now, but I feel like my inkjet setup is not getting...

    I've got both, though my flat rack is not spring loaded. It's only a little bit quicker using the flat rack since it is right near the press.

    Instead of binder clips I use wooden clothespins with...

    I've got Alan's book. I like it a lot. Been working on some sketches for an art book myself, but have been unsure on how I want to bind it. Really like how yours above is made in a fashion that it...

    Nice! Let us know how that melamine holds up over time. I was tempted to use it, but someone had advised that if you spilled water on it that it could swell and warp. Mostly I just try*not to spill...

    I posted something similar a few weeks back and for my frames it's been manageable and I can still use them, but they definitely aren't flat and level straight from Victory. The last couple I got...

    I may have forgotten that step. It does tend to be a lucky charm.



    It is a 25x36.

    Because of minerals, etc. in the water? I've wondered if I could benefit by buying distilled water. I've got an awful lot of sodium due to my softener. Also higher concentrations of radium than most...

    You're spraying every 10 to 20 prints with just water? Does it adversely affect each print after a spray? For what it's worth I'm also using Speedball at the moment and I pre wet my screen with an...

    Thanks for all the suggestions folks! Will try to implement them in the future. Here's what I know/what I did.

    I use a pull stroke. I could try a push stroke. I feel like it would be awkward at...

    Ended up fighting it all through the run. Pressed harder with the squeegee and did add a little more water to my ink. Test prints onto blank sheets didn't stick, but all others did. At least this...

    Will give it another try shortly. Ink appears dry and was printed almost a week ago. Squeegee seems straight. I'll test the table to make sure it's flat. Paper is 100# Cougar cover.

    Very nice! I'm jealous for sure. I doubt I'll ever print process regularly, but would like to give it a shot some day just for the experience.

    Oh, and I should mention that this screen comes with considerable ink coverage. Much more than I've ever printed before. 230 yellow mesh. Print area is about 18x24 on 19x25 paper.

    Got some of that EasiSolv 500 delivered today. It said you could mix it as low as 1:30, but I think I was closer to 1:6. Puts that Strip-E-Doo to shame. Maybe I won't mix it quite so strong next time.
