    Default DIY screen drying rack

    We just got a sick new modular drying rack for our screens, check it out:



    Laugh all you want, but we used to dry them 6 at a time on the carousel, and the emulsion would run downhill on the lower mesh screens. This is an improvement.

    Haha. Yep. Been there, done that. I think I used little pieces of 1"x2" scrap wood that I had lying around though...

    Yep, I have some strips of 2" baseboard molding that I place between screens.

    I used to coat screens before leaving for the day....coat, turn off lights, close door, leave. Then in the morning when they were dried I'd lean them up against the wall in a dark closet until we needed them.

    I usually coat at night and store under a skirted table in the morning.

    Alphabet blocks here.

    My exposure unit is on a cheap IKEA table with cheaper legs. Wrapped 3 sides of the table in 100% light safe black heavy duty contractor bags (cut open into big rectanlges and duct taped to the table top). The back side is up against the wall. Underneath is enough room for 16 23x31 screens to dry horizontally with alphabet blocks between each screen. We got smarty pants and put two sets of wood 2x4s with dowels in them running vertically in the back, nailed into the wall, so that I only have to put blocks on the front sides of my screens.

    Yep.
