    Default free press plans?

    heyyyyyyyyyyy

    im sorta a n00b on this forum but I sorta need some help. I have been screen printing (generally with emulsion) for about 6 months and so far all i have been using is a single screen and thus only one color. i would love to move on to multi color works but rather than buying an expensive press I wanted to make sure i can (or cant) get some free (or cheap) plans off the almighty internet. is there a website or some place where there are plans to build presses?

    im looking for maybe a 4 screen press, but 2 would also be nice. ive also heard that they have some in the premium members section on this website.

    also, i have heard some people mention "vacum" presses. i cant find out what those are. can someone explain?

    Vacuum isn't for tees.
    Just buy a two color t-shirt press on ebay. There's enough people falling in and out of love with printing Tees on there.

    if you build it you're going to waste more money/time trying to get it to work for shirts.

    just buy one on the bay, it'll save you a ton of money and stomach ulcers in the long run.

    It will be cheaper and way less headaches to buy a used press from the get-go!

    BUT..

    I have posted t-shirt press plans in the Premium Member section for those who dare!

    it's only single colour. Getting premium is cheaper than getting the book.

    Did scott or someone put that lazy susan 4/c contraption in Premium? I know there is quite the set of plans for all sorts of stuff

    - The Fergatron washout booth and nuclear radiation bath

    - Home laser surgery exposure unit

    - Sacksuckin' screen table

    - Scotty's wack-a-hammer adjusting backbar

    - The Bdix GP halftonefigurerouter

    there may be more but I'm too lazy to look.

    I need a semiauto that can fit down a really narrow set of stairs with a 90 degree turn halfway down the flight.

    Is that asking too much?
