Talking building your own vacuum exposure-help

Hello. I am new to the industry and am trying to save money with equipment where ever I can. To me, all of the exposures I see for sale are kind of over priced for what I could make one for. I have an idea but I'm wondering if anyone knows of any manuals or videos or websites that would help me build a vacuum exposure. I did see one video on ebay but I'm curious of my options. Maybe someone here has built one themselves or an old instructional video/book not in use? Any advice, links, etc would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I *think* the book "How to Make T-Shirts for Fun and Profit" includes instructions on how to build that piece of equipment, maybe another member here will know for sure.

One place to check for videos would be U.S. Screen Print and Inkjet Technology

I'm sure I've read someone's description of how they built one, but I don't remember where sorry. One of the regulars here must know something about it though. It's a pretty simple piece of equipment, so there's no real reason you couldn't make it yourself if you were the DIY type (personally... I'm not ).

Hello, my name is Frank. I'm a newbie here. As regards making your own exposure unit - go to YouTube.com and type in exposure unit in the search box. There are a couple of helpful vidoes. Look for one by a Mr Jennings from New York. He was kind enough to email me plans and instructions on how to make my own. Hope this helps. Cheers

Frank

I believe its to do with understanding the principle of how it works. once you master that you can use anything.
I use to have 5 normal tubelight and a clear glass. 18' height and use stop watch 32 minutes.TRUST ME IT WORKS. you can decrease time by playing around with the height.
