    Default the zen of reclaiming...

    i've not yet moved up from speedball inks, emulsion, etc...so i don't know if this holds true for the more professional grade stuff...

    does anyone else get into a sort of zenlike place when reclaiming screens? i cleaned off two this morning, with bleach and the pressure washer, and it was a sort of nice way to start out the day.

    if by zenlike you mean "man - can't I pay someone to do this for me, this sucks" then yes.

    I've gotten in a zenlike place reclaiming screens, and I've never even reclaimed a screen.

    if by zen-like you mean it's all cool and nice to see the stencil wash away until you are spraying the inside corners of the squeegee side and the water arcs out and soaks you down, then you know, yes.

    I cleaned 30 screens yesterday, I will clean 15 more today. Zen-like is not the word I would use to describe the kind of fun I will have today.
