    Thank you Steve,
    I remember those double sided vertical screen presses, from my days of photo-imageable solder mask. Looks like the smallest pre-stretched wooden screens I can buy are 20"x 24". Realy bulky for printing 5"x7" glass plates. But I will try it out.
    For mesh marks, I am thinking about a horizontal rack for holding the wet printed panels. This could be placed in an oven at 35C for levaling..
    Still, it is a lot of spce for some small plates

    If all I could get pre-stretched was a 20" x 24" frame then I would buy just one then make or have made some hard wood (or metal) frames about 9" x 11" on the outside. I would glue them to the mesh of the large frame then when the glue had set, cut them out individually.

    It would be a waste of a large frame but you would end up with some more manageable screens.

    I'm not sure what glue to suggest for home use. We us a UV cure glue in our stretching room. Just shine some UV light at it for a few minutes and it's cured.
