    Not to revive a dead thread, but I wanted to post back incase anyone stumbles on this in the distant future. It was definitely doable although not ideal. Exposure was at 22 minutes calculated with a...

    God, I hope someone stumbles on this thread and tries that.

    Thanks for the reply, SqueegeeThree. I felt like I might be on a fools errand, but the info got me outta bed and into the lab this morning.

    So I gave it a crack, and it worked. For the record and...
  4. Can you expose with regular fluorescent cool white bulbs??

    So I was digging around in our back storage room a few weeks ago and found a NuArc exposure unit. Thing is that it's loaded with GE cool white fluorescent bulbs --25 watts I think -- and I can't wrap...

    ^^^What he said.

    Or if you're looking for a more organic approach dipping an old toothbrush in screen filler and flicking it onto the screen works.

    I found some L-bracket stock that's thinner ––*somewhere in the 1/16" range, +/- a bit –– that makes things much more in the range of what I'd consider a minimum amount of off-contact. I've been in...

    Hey Andy, thanks for that; it does make perfect sense but it's not something I would have considered until it was likely too late. I'll have to consider how best to make that easily adjustable...

    DIY Masterframe off-contact

    Hi everyone. So I'm in the process of building a parallel lift press with a master frame. The one thing (well, not the only thing, but the most immediate thing) that's giving me trouble is the idea...

    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...
  15. 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....

    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...
  21. 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...
