Hi!

Anyone seen suction table parts?
Particularly any long rods, counter wight bar, clamps…

Here is a picture of the counterweight, looking for the second one

Here is a picture of how it is supposed to look

Amazing, I have never seen it without just junk on it!!

Sorry, don’t know where the other parts are…

It works without the counterweights and the bar…it’s just a bit more physical effort

P.S. don’t think we had those extra clamps in the photo (with the red handles)

We, I and @JackL who is leading on this, found the arm and the back bar. Looking for two counterweights now, around 20+kgs one and thena smaller one.

Hi @JackL - how’s the screen printing area looking?

Any hope for inductions or demos or anything in that area anytime soon?

Thanks!!

If you have a project that needs screenprinting then it’s worth seeing if we have facilities for it and then going for it

This isn’t an area that should specifically need an induction…however as we know all areas benefit from having orientation and demos

Hi Dermot,

Sounds good! Then what are all these folks waiting for?!

Ok - can I archive the waitlist then?

Archived the waitlist as there is no induction - and created a tool page for screen printing. Please add to it if you know anything about it! Thanks!

So the paints are fine? I can see you’ve reused an old frame! I wonder how it’d go if a new one was to be developed and the old frames cleaned. Ah! Wish I had more time for this…

Ya! Works great! Wanted to start as simple as possible…

Next step is to do just that, clean and create a new screen…

Good idea! I think we need to make a new screen first, this one has some pinholes in the mask…

Will we need a UV box

We have some box there no?

Do we just need UV Fluorescent tubes for it?
