    Pressure washer blew out parts of the damaged screens, but not enough, my water bill would override the value of just getting the rescreened if i'd of carried on. After my print run of 150 today, i...

    What you just described Gein sounds very very similar to my problem, perfectly clean screen aside from a hairs-width outline around where the stencil was. Did you have any luck getting the screens...

    Don't worry, i'll fully try out all the ideas, specifically moving the decoater around as i'm applying it and rinsing straight away, should help along with the pressure washer.

    Thanks.

    I know, i have been printing in ridiculous heat recently (This is from the UK too haha..) I know about letting it sit for too long, that's a lost cause when that happens as nothing removes it. I...

    Yep, i'm pretty damn sure it's the knuckles, but it spills over into the gaps of the mesh, therefore blocking the mesh.
    I rinse my screen after removing the ink, brush my reclaimer on both sides,...

    Would leaving the screen in a diluted mixture of this screen wash and water overnight have any bearing do you think?

    Thanks for the help Andy and Squeegee.

    The problem isn't with regards to ink drying in the screen whilst printing (i.e. clogging). That never happens, and i always wash the ink out straight after a print run, and usually if not always...

    Hi!

    This is a rather serious issue for the business and had only recently started to occur with order runs of over 50, mainly with black ink, but occasionally reds and blues.

    Thanks for the advice. I understand you'll see the tag either way, the problem is the actual ink is depositing on the back of the shirt THROUGH the fabric.

    I reckon finer mesh, with no flood pull...

    My client has specified the shirt type unfortunately, either way they're relatively thick shirts, thickest GSM that i usually print onto. (Gildan Heavy)

    From all my research, these expo check calculators are mega expensive, is this expected?

    Taping the acetate was my idea, but it seems ridiculous to have to set my timer to 30 seconds constantly and move it.
    And i can't turn the vacuum off, the power button instantly switches the vacuum...

    I have just purchased a Lumitron Workhorse lightbox, i have no idea how long to expose my screens for anymore as previously i was using 4 x 400w lamps...

    I'm currently using just my mac screen's light, and i've never encountered any problems.

    I use Azacol Z1 emulsion, it's not very light sensitive so i guess whatever the light is, as long as it's...

    Yeah, 71T is 180 threads/inch at medium thickness (Over here we only seem to have small, medium and heavy thicknesses)

    Printing a photo (VERY fine halftones)

    Hi!

    I'm about to embark on attempting to screen print a photo.
    Starting simple, single colour (Black & white photo, with the substrate being the white, black being the ink)

    The acetates i use aren't the frosted kind, they're Folex inkjet acetates, completely transparent, rough one side (inkjet side) smooth on the other.

    The stencil is completely solid where there is...

    Found a half decent one. If anyone is interested, saved me making some ridiculous geometric shapes myself.

  21. Where to get an exposure calculator/step test in the UK?

    Hi!

    I recently have made a change to the way expose my images, and changed the light source, this should influence my exposure time a lot.

    Can anyone point me the in the direction of somewhere...

    Damnit! Seems like such a rookie mistake, i did the maths with the emulsion with 2400 watts pointing at it, it had an exposure time ranging from 9 - 10.30 minutes, so lord knows where i've gone wrong...

    Yeah, i have a shoddy Inkjet Business 2800 i think it is, not a great printer, but for simple geometric designs, the screens expose perfect. Thanks for the idea though, it makes me a bit more...

    I think maybe point 1 is definitely a winner.
    I have achieved damn good detail previously with a 7minute exposure with EIGHT 400watt halogen lights (3200watts) surrounding the screen, and im...
