    Default Albatross Cleaning Gun?

    So, I'm in the middle of setting up a small screen printing studio and I'm looking at getting the Albatross/Expert SP3000 Cleaning Gun that's on special for $99 over at http://www.victoryfactory.com/specials.htm. I'll have access to water at my studio, but I probably won't be able to hookup a big ol' pressure washer to the utility sink. Would this hand-held number do the trick for reclaiming and clean-up? Does anyone have any experience with it?

    That's not what it's used for.

    It's for spraying out ink that isn't supposed to be on the shirt.

    I once shot 4 holes in my arm by accidentally pressing the buttong when my arm was in the way. OUCH!

    I didn't do it on purpose, but my high school teacher told me about that chemical too. within a split second, I had 4 holes ripd open near my wrist. When those things are on fine spray, they shred quick.

    I hope I don't die tonight.

    Back in my production textile printing daze that was one of the horror stories that used to go around, always about a guy "who worked here before you" along with the guy whose head was crushed like a grape inside a oval press. Ouch. Those little suckers can definitely punch a quick hole in your ass though, and some of those chems are nasty as hell, soo...

    Oh...the dry cleaning gun.

    Yeah. You can't reclaim with that.

    It's pretty much the exact thing dry cleaners use to take out stains and what not.

    They are totally awesome - like a plastisol eraser!

    Good tip on the shoes, never thought of that.
