Oh my, this is an old thread. I'm afraid that video is long gone because it caused much drama with another YouTube person who decided to go stalker on me. I don't actually even use that tuning method anymore. But, if you want a rough idea of underscreen tuning you can look at my newer video that shows that and what I do now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_fQ9CsoWo0

Annnnnnd I didn't even remember what I did in that video until I pulled it up in the archive. I do still use the magnetic 3 point registration and the three point tuners do still remain on the screen. I no longer use underscreen tuning for all the reasons I stated in the video linked above. All the demos of the 3 point magnetic system are still accurate.

Hi,
I'm printing shirts in a water base ink. Does it work with the 4 colors, 1 station press?

If that question is for my setup: As many colors as you have screens.
If that question is not for my setup: Huh? (the usual blank expression and rounding of the shoulders is optional

Boss Mac, have you been printing 1 and 2 colors already with your press using Water Based Ink?

Water Based dries in the screen, so you need to flood the screen before moving on to the next t-shirt or screen color.

4 colors will work but you have to be up to speed so you're ready to move quickly from screen to screen and on to the next t-shirt.

Nope. I haven't tried using press since then.
for 4 colors. should I wait to dry up the first color and print the next color and so? or is it fine to print the colors even the ink is still wet?
