    Default One Armed Press thingies

    Wondering if any of you know what those one armed, manual screen printing machines are. the ones with one arm, and it's all counterweighted so that you can print large areas by pushing the manual print arm across. It's kind of the old world version of the autopress.

    I went to NW graphic supply in Minneapolis, and they only had this super crazy expensive and huge one..and didn't know hardly anything.

    I've seen in some really vintage printmaking books, pictures and articles about these things, and they weren't as huge or involved as the one at NW graphics.

    I have an attic studio, and can't get an autopress up there, so I was wondering if there was something smaller..or could be broken down that would help me print bigger and larger runs.

    We still have them

    go to TMI Screenprinting Equipment

    but you are right, you would have trouble getting it upstairs. And they are heavy and don't dissassemble well.

    but....you can find older used ones, or just the runner bar and squeegeeholder, on smaller versions, then reassemble it up top. and NO, we don't sell the bar assembly separately.

    you don't say how big you want to print.

    Welcome to my hell. I want an auto badly or even one of these one arms. But my basement stairs are NARROW with a 90˚ turn in the middle.

    We had to buy a European washer and dryer just to get them down there cuz they're so small.

    Some day.

    Concrete saw and an excavator would fix that problem.

    we got a cameo 38 upstairs, two 90 degree turns, and didn't have to cut shit.
