Along with Woodworking, I enjoy a new hobby, Screen Printing T-shirts.

I started a New Foundation for woodworkers Across the globe to unite and connect.

And I am starting to print T-shirts for the UFOWW and found a need for a screen printing press. So here is a look at that build

Also I had a short follow up on some notes about the press and why im posting a day early..

Nice press!
About 30 years ago or so I was making serigraphic art prints with very basic screens on hinges.
The process is one that allows printing without elaborate machinery, and you have just shown how this basic technique permits elaboration of the mechanics.
As a side note, I once did a demonstration with six presses set up in a display area, before a TV camera, showing how a six color image is built up.
It was fun!
Congratulations on your nice looking shirt press.
