    Default Ultra cheap washing unit

    an italian screenprinting materials supplier asked me to write some short articles about screenprinting: I started with few lines about how I made my washing unit: pretty awful to see, but works! do you think it may be useful to post a translation here?

    Default so here's the translation:

    Making my first print on paper has been great satisfaction,
    but just after that I discovered I totally underestimated what's was coming next: cleaning!

    Like probably many others had done, I reclaimed my first screen by hand, using kitchen sponge, into my bathroom: this was the point when I realized that buying an high pressure cleaner could possibly be the best gift I could do to my mental sanity.

    From this also came the need for a washing unit, and I managed to do it with very few euros (at least if compared with a commercial one, for italian street prices):

    - In a DIY store I got a half-size bathtub, which I also got at a discounted price because last one, display unit: 25 euros;

    - I got 3 metal plates, with proper flaps on corners so I could join them using rivets: this was the most expensive part: 75 euros; rivets were also used to join plates to bathtub and silicone glue sealed the joints and corners;

    - for the stand I already had some wood left from a previous home duty, as well as the wheels: free;

    - Funnel&tube glued at the bottom to collect fluids: 1 euro; in the photo you see the tube from the funnel lying on the ground but of course place your favorite container underneath...

    Total: 101 euros, and my life got definitely better ^_^
