    Default Two questions

    I have two questions. First, I just got an old, abandoned screen from school that has dried emulsion that's been on it for at least four years, but mostly likely a lot longer than that. What are the chances of this screen being reclaimed and usable and, how would I do it, if possilbe, without emulsion remover.
    Secondly, that same screen measures something like 11.5 across and so my 12 inch squeegee doesn't fit. Can I pull a screen widthwise, instead of up and down?

    it might be possible to clean it. i had a friend that reclaimed screens with bleach. i think andy deisel used to back in the day too. not sure on the bleach to water ratio. probably a lot of elbow grease. most likely worth while to go buy a screen for 20-30 bucks. pull which ever way you see necessary!!

    Yeah, you can pull side to side or back to front, on t-shirts there is a whole group of people who advocate push to print. (front to back)

    11.5 inches wide? you need at least 2inches of free run between the squeegee and the inside of the screen walls...your max print image would be about 5" wide, if you leave yourself some room on either end of a 7 inch squeegee...
