Thank you Phillip, but I can't. I know that it is a great book (bible) for t-shirt screen printing, but i don't have credit card (don't have job) and many sites doesn't accept orders from my country (Macedonia). I'm sure there must be a way to buy that book, but untill than, i will try to find some plans for 4-colour screen press on internet ( I found plans and build one colour t-shirt press so far).
Thanks again.

I have built the press Fracture mentions and I find it works well enough for dark inks on light shirts I still have difficulty doing white on black.
I find that you require washers to space the hinge assembly a little higher so that the screen doesn't lie directly on the platen. Also, since I have a smaller screen I had to move the hinge assembly closer to the platen which makes it difficult to keep the t-shirt out of the way. I would also recommend some type of laminate on top of the platen so the screws aren't a bother.
I have only printed a few shirts and washed out as many. I am still learning and trying to work out the bugs.

All of these hulked out gargantuan wooden presses are why I learned to weld LOL Made a beautiful table top steel 4 color press with micro registration. I feel lucky to have learned how to weld. Soooo much easier now!;)

OK, and you will get them.
this person is looking all over the internet for pics for a press that he can say he built
How rude that he cant share his plans This forum is to help others it is not like we are going to steal your business (or whatever little business you may have) :mad:

I understand that, and I said I would post some pics etc, what are you not understanding here gotshirts2ink? But unless you can weld, I do not see what good plans are going to do, I mean if someone could weld they would not be trying to build huge wooden presses would they? Yes this forum is to help others, so that means drawing up plans, giving them to someone and then teaching them to weld? Watch your mouth or I will not post anything, and it will be on you. What little business I have? Really? You know nothing about me.

And dikart, just stay tuned I will get some pics to you and maybe give you some ideas.
