    Don't know if you ran into this on the forums, but this is one I made a few years back –*it's still going strong, and the price was right....

    I checked the premium section, and I guess what I was most curious about was the switch setup which we've already addressed. I think now I'm pretty much building your rabbit tables to spec. There...

    You're right about the size – I meant 24x36. I too had a 3x4, but unlike you never ran a job that big in two years. So the size is set.

    So is the foot pedal thing, at least as far as it being a...

    Thanks for weighing in, Andy. I think I'm going the foot pedal route for simplicity, although I have to say I wouldn't mind figuring out a way to incorporating a switch like you did on the Jaguar. I...

    @Redbank – Thanks! I'll try to track that down

    Also, I feel like I saw somewhere that someone had incorporated a rocker switch from a surge-protector into the table itself, and placed it right...
  7. What is the best On/Off switch setup for a vacuum table?

    I've been scheming lately on how to create my own 3'x4' vacuum table largely using AndyMacs plans, albeit slightly modified. The part that has me stumped is what would be the best way to create the...

    I know I probably don't count, but I've made it twice so far. Keep us posted on the build –*it's always really helpful to see someone else's process to see where improvements can be made.

    Super helpful, man. Thanks a ton to everyone who replied. I'm getting together with a furniture maker and we're going to draw up some plans for all this gear. I'll keep you all posted, but if...

    It seems like a single-source light would be less prone to undercutting, but I've never had the opportunity to test a fluorescent light source against a single-point light source with the same film....

    How are the halftones on 280 yellow? Any undercutting?

    Thanks for weighing in guys. I'm burning 21" x 31" screens, so that might be a while. I guess my priority would be detail –*I can always find something to do for 12-17 minutes. But there's...
  13. DIY Exposure Unit: Unfiltered Blacklight Tubes vs 1000 Watt Metal Halide Grow Light??

    I need your opinion and the title of this post says it all: unfiltered blacklight tubes or a single 1000 watt metal halide grow light? I was all about unfiltered blacklights, but I'm moving into...

    It is night and day. Maybe your situation makes it difficult to build your own, but for $1,500 bucks seems like a lot for something you could build for 1/10th the cost. I've used manufactured...

    One time I called the guys at Ulano on an unrelated emulsion exposure question, and we got to bullshitting. During said bullshit session I mentioned that I was at a sign shop and we had a vinyl...

    @dddmx3 Sorry for the delay in response. For some reason I stopped getting email updates when someone comments. Anyway, the dimensions of the frame are 3'x4', or just a touch under so it would...

    Yeah, I love them for fabric--super soft, more like a dye really. The fibrilation is about the same as with plastisol inks, and at some point in the life cycle better. On a large print run or with...

    +1 to what Wormser said. It's super handy to have a bridge book in Pantone and the CMYK equivalent--it works really well across all mediums--web, print, screening, etc.

    Did my first split fountain last night with the help of Andy's tutorial. It turned out way simpler than I though, with better results than I expected. I used matsui water-based inks, laid it on the...

    I learned single-coat with speedball and mylar eyeball registration at the UO from a lithography teacher that thought that 'serigraphy' was bullshit. We made all of our films by making a photocopy,...

    So I've got a little follow-up question--why did my burn time go from 22:40 to 16 minutes with the addition of the vacuum top? Nothing changed--same film positives, same lights, same emulsion (same...

    It was still fresh going in the microwave.

    Here's the thing though--this took probably 5 minutes to do from start to finish. Why didn't you just pop some in the microwave? I mean no...

    With Ulano RLX, same mesh, same squeegee, I've definitely got more than 500 pulls in. You should be good if you set up you screen right (ie. abrading, degreasing, etc.).
