    Hi Andy

    oh you speak about a screen on front, one on right and one on the left!

    I've understood of screen-holders in line! In line, virtually, you can print an unlimited amout of colors. But you need to move the tshirt with its support always in the same places (i believe a good idea can be a wood/metal frame (not the one for screenprint) fixed to the table, that fits perfectly the tshirt's support. Another solution, better but difficult to build is to move the tshirt's support over a binary, that stops the support in fixed points.

    About the emails, okay take the time to answer them, do not worry.

    Viva los burros, Against the airplanes!

    you can add extra hinge bases on either side of the platten. With the correct size screens and placement of art you can print 3 colors, each screen will come down while the others are up.
    The hinge bases are independent of each other so can be adjusted for register once the original screen/platten/print is lined up and clamped in place.

    It's hokey but it works.

    Yes, but if you have a different size of screens you're f***ed, i imagine!

    Isn't the structure of the tshirt jigs in "train" more modular? In this way also more than one person can print the tshirts.

    Thanks,

    i'm wondering if it's possible to rig the three screens to string/pulleys so that as screen A goes down to print, screens B and C go up and out of the way. Then when screen B goes down, screens A and C go up...

    i don't want to step on anyones toes but the 3 color t jig sounds like more hassle than what it's worth.

    if i was going to take the time and money to build something than i would suggest this;
    home built four color press for screen printing and silk screen

    cheers

    Do the Hokey Pokey. Don't worry about me Oli, I have steel toes!

    The best thing about any of these designs is they will quickly convince the people who want to be professional in their printing efforts to save up and buy proper equipment as they get better.

    But for home built, that guy's site has some good ideas.
