    Default One-Arm Bandit Vs. 30" Squeege??

    I'm building a vacuum table using Andy's plans scaled up to 45"x55" (like fantasygoat's). I want to make prints 30"x40". (Local coffee shop wants me to print their new menu boards.)

    I think a one-arm bandit is probably the way to go, but I have no idea how to build it. Anyone have plans, or suggestions? Should I go to HomeDepot and just buy like a shovel handle and some steel pipes and stuff?

    Is it possible to pull a 30" squeegee evenly?

    see if you can find a used one. You would need to be able to work metal to build one, I doubt you could make it with home tools

    you need to make a bearing unit that will travel on the back rail

    So, I think I'm gonna order a 30" squeegee (until I can find a used bandit).

    What's the level of difficulty of using a 30" squeegee?

    I find a 29" is easy to pull, and a 31" too, but the 30" ones are really tricky

    Could someone please suggest where I can order 30" squeegee or larger? I'm also looking for an extra long scoop coater. Thanks.

    Midwest sign and screen

    — charges per inch for both squeeqees and scoopcoaters. i think they can cut them to be pretty long.
