the tins turned out to be too big. they barely fit on the shelf. one tin had to be on one shelf, the other on another shelf. these new sterilites stack real easy. and when the aluminum tins went in the shmuvbox. it was difficult to maneuver. had to be real careful. now, this is real simple and the rig is sturdy. better be, spent about 4 hours searching for just the right rig. so, if you like it, you can save yourself alot of time. depending on the space available. this is a very tight space. so there is not much room to play with. all other space is utilized for storage.
spent the day on a printing rig run. looked everywhere. trying to utilize the space available. the problem was that none of the lower flat sterilites are the right size. all being bigger than the appropriate size to fit on the shelves. this was a run around target and walmart back and forth with bins and trays day.
flat baking trays. the thick ones. 10 bucks each but worth it. 15 jars fit per tray. found these 28 quart sterilites for about 5 bucks at target. 23"x26"x6"h. nice, clean, stackable. takes up very little space.
the trays can stack two in each bin.
easy and stackable. 30 prints per bin. put 3 together. and you have 90 print capacity. the bake pan, foil, and jars are baked in the oven for 30 mins at 350 degrees. once cool, the sterilite is thoroughly cleaned with rubbing alc and disinfectant spray. the trays are placed inside the plastic containter right out of the oven once cool. then taken to the clean area. or to the shmuvbox for printing.
caps cut off and laid down with glass jars over them. alllowed to print for 12-18 hours then caps are removed and prints are allowed to dry with jars over the prints for a few days. nice thing is. you can visually see inside these boxes without having to open them up.
just curious what the prints look like coming out of that tray . do they take on the characteristics of the mesh shelf..??
the prints look like they have a square mesh pattern on it. where the rack is, the print isn't on the foil. if that makes sense.
