If you're doing general printing, ditch the Newmans for some wood or aluminum screens... eliminate all the headaches. I have a room full of Newmans that haven't been used in years. They do give better prints when stretched correctly, but again... if doing general spot color work standard frames are much easier to live with. 10 years printing with no problems. Order from Pocono Screen, their wood frames are awesome ! Actually the wood screens seem to last longer than the aluminum. I may post my Newmans up here soon... been collecting dust way too long.
