    Smile Want to build a screenprinting manual table 50x70 with arm lift but need help.

    Hi people,
    following the suggestions of many people here, i decided to start with the manual screenprinting table 50x70, with arm lift.

    I don't know how to start my project so any suggestion is welcome.

    Basically i want to build a vacuum table 50x70, with microregistrations and create the structure for the arm lift, to help me during the printing (i'm planning to stamp an high number of prints liek adesives, boxes, bags and so on).

    I've always seen the arm lift positioned along the long side of table. Is positioned in this way to print with the inks vertically (relative to the final direction of the substrate) or not? I explain better: If you have an A4 paper and you color it vertically, the lines of the coloration are less visible than if you color is horizontally (i believe this is a "problem" of the percepition of our brain).

    I'm saying this because I'd like to create an arm lift bound to a double binary, to prevent distortions of the arm lift during the time and above all spending less energy possible during the manual printing.

    I want to build a professional screenprinting table!

    I will be happy to project all the table with you all here online, listening for the suggestions and tips of you all. I will share the final plan with you all and with everyone want to download it.

    How does want to help me?

    Fabio

    ps. It's my first equipment, but I planned to build also the vacuum frame, the dryer for the screen and the washbooth (but for this i've alredy seen a plan here..however we can reproject it.

    That's the advice I'd give as well at this point. You've had a lot of questions thus far and they are all answered in Andy's book. Plus he built these table for a living and knows how to engineer them.

    Thank you 2 for the answer.

    I have the book of Andy, haven't read it completly (i'm at the chapter of the inks and i'm translating it in Italian) but the plans at the end of the book is for a vacuum table, not a vaccum table with arm lift.

    Hello,
    i haven't so much money to buy a new one. Also because the new one are projected terribily here in Italy, and they're expensive.

    I'll contact Andy.
