Default Re: 4 color 1 station Screen Printing Press Help

What Mikel said. I have 4/1...I got it used for like $150 bucks. The pros are as Mikel said above. I have no complaints. I hold reg very well. I only do 4 color spot obviously. But havent had registration problems like some do. the one thing I would change is that I would get the 2 station upgrade. with plastisols it helped speed production. But I would like the 2nd station because I am now getting into water based inks and 1 platen gets 2 hot and slows down production, which is OK except my inks keep drying in screen on me. now most of that is on multi color H2O jobs but I dont have a conveyor and cure on my heat press...till tax refund comes in...lol.

I need the dryer more than a new press so I may just do the 2 station upgrade.
