When I first started printing a few years ago, a supply store I did business with was selling what I thought a pretty nice frame set up.
It involved a freestanding metal frame, pop in screens that were very easy to remove and replace, and a tool to do this with.
The screens had long tabs sewn into each side, slightly smaller than the side of the frame to which they sat adjacent.
The tool's handle acted as a lever, and to work the arrangement, you would seat the tab on one side of the frame, , seat the opposing tab in the tool, rest the tool on the frame and pop that tab in.
Then you 'd do the same with the remaining tabs.
Unfortunately, there was some sort of patent dispute, and the design became unavailable for a good while.
Every once in a while, I'd call this supply shop to find out if the situation had been resolved, as I had several frames, and few replacement screens. Until recently I was told that that setup was still in limbo.
On my last call I was told that the dispute had been settled one way or another. But when I asked about getting new replacement screens, i was told that this shop was not doing business with the current supplier, since they felt that the prices were too high. Somewhat understandably, the shop owner did not seem inclined to give me contact information for the people handling the units these days.
However, also understandably, I'd like to find a source for the screens, and make up my own mind as to whether this still works for me.
So if anyone knows about this kind of setup, and where I can contact someone about, I'd really appreciate that information.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
