This is another video from the very beginning of the YouTube channel’s 2 year history. At this time I was making videos which covered the basic equipment which I though was most important. I had started with the textile press and here I went on to cover the belt oven or what is sometimes called the belt dryer. Since most all of my videos deal with plastisol inks, I figured covering the machine used to cure plastisol inks was critical. This is one of those first videos where you can see my nervousness and inhibitions coming through.
But despite my obvious limitations in video making the video turned out quite well. I talk about the temperatures needed to cure plastisol inks as well as the tool used to measure that temperature in this video. If you have never worked with plastisol inks before, then this is one of those videos you shouldn’t miss. And if you are looking to screen print tee shirts at home for the first time, you may want to watch this video as well. It is often helpful to see how the professionals do things in order to help you figure out how to do it at home.
I think when I get all new equipment for the Catspit shop, I will remake a lot of these equipment videos. I’ll get to feature new equipment that I sell and remake the video with all my latest and greatest video making skills. And they will be in the new HD format as well. I have to say, I am having a lot of fun making videos for YouTube. And I want to make better videos all time. So make sure to stay tuned to the blog, website and YouTube channel for the latest screen printing videos.
