« Part 1: A Simple Stand for a Belt Sander Part 2 of DIY Jigs / How-to Woodworking series Part 3: Bandsaw Jig to Cut Log Slices / Christmas Ornaments »

I made this machine based on plans from, anyway if you note some differences with the plans, it is because after a time working on it, I have made some changes in the dimensions of the parts and some reinforcements to improve the printings on other materials such as wood, for example.

This is a really versatile machine to make a lot of screen printing projects with great results, it can works with different materials as papers, fabrics, leather, wood and other porous materials.
