    Hot-Swap has always meant something else to me. Print fun looking. I like the way the screen register to the hinges. Means you better shoot your screens dead on I guess.

    I saw that the other day. I remain unconvinced that it's worth the money.

    hmmm, we have a couple of DIY kits we are bringing to use in the panel presentation at SXSW, they don't look like these, they came compliments of Ryonet and DIYprintshop.com (I think that's their name....) mostly similar concept, except for the Hot-Swap idea....

    Yes. You have to burn the screens dead on. You burn the screens in place while they are locked into the press, so it's not that hard. Because the clamp grabs the way it does, you get better registration than you might expect. Personally, I'd use a 1 pt trap, but I usually do when possible anyway.

    What would convince you? We are running an AD right now for Tampa local people to try the prototype for themselves. If you have experience screen printing, it may surprise you. If not, then it just works, and that's about all you'll notice.

    Too bad I missed that. This press would murder the Ryonet system, except that Ryonet's does larger images. We'll be making an expansion, though that let's you go larger. HotSwap beats any other non-air powered screen printing clamp out there.

    Good luck to you Merchmakr. I have a fully equipped shop so I won't be a customer but I root for you from the sidelines.

    If you're ever in the Mid Missouri area hocking wares let me know. I'd love to give it a once over and let you know what I think.

    That's a neat little one color press.

    Swapping screens to print multiple colors...there's no way you could possibly sell this to anyone who actually knows the slightest bit about screen printing. Or maybe you can...I dunno.

    Good luck! That looks like a fun hobbyist setup.
