    Default Well I guess you can rip a screen with water pressure, after all...

    Because I just did. Not just that, but a nice, new, big square five footer I borrowed from Daly, who's in Costa Rica, blissfully unaware. Guess I'll be paying to restretch that one.

    I accomplished this with a nothing-special sprayer from Lowe's.
    Corner of screen + tight stretch + max spray focus = rrrrrriiiip!

    "Every single Crosshair poster I've ever seen is almost exactly the same. Do these guys even have a bit of creativity in them? I mean, come one - shitty old building pics photoshopped with text over them. Pretty pathetic to say the least."

    "it just seems like so little effort is put into creating this? am i missing something?"

    Weve had that happen before, our theory was that there may have been a small hole already in the screen, just waiting for the right amount of pressure to rip.

    i've done it a few times being stoned and having the pressure washer set to the pinpoint pattern. I'm surprised you've gotten this far without popping one this way.

    Yep, I thought it was par for the course. Happens to most everybody at one point.

    i still find scraping the emulsion off with a razor blade to be far more effective then water.
