    Default Vaccum table size...did i screw myself?

    Hello folks,

    So though i built my vacuum table over 6 months ago, it looks like i'll finally be able to put it to use in a couple weeks. I built the upper plate to be 24x36 (3" in on all sides before suction holes begin) because i only planned on doing 18x24 prints at the most. I still am not looking to go larger print wise at this time but more interested in knowing if i would have a problem using a 25x36 frame without any hiccups from that 1/2" overhang on both sides. I didn't take this into consideration due to having quite a few 20x24 and 23x31 frames on hand i planned on using.

    Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.
    thanks

    You are doomed (but not because of your bed size)

    I'm guessing you will be alright. Give it a shot and let us know how it goes. Good luck.

    Why would there be any hiccups? You should be printing off-contact, so the sides of your frame wouldn't touch the vac table even if it were 25" wide. I print with screens 12" wider than my vac table all the time. It just gets to be a problem if they're longer, not wider.

    thanks folks, the input is much appreciated and i'll go ahead and grab me some larger frames now.

    Paul-i realize what you're saying and it makes sense...i was just wanting the confirmation as newbie to flatstock printing
