    Thanks again to Bryan Kelly, jathomp22, and my friend James Ahlschwede for making this video possible. Hope this explains the process of screening a WPC backbox. The process is nearly identical for the smaller patent screen except there is no need for a cleat since the screen can rest again the rails.

    PM for interest in buying a set of screens.

    know anyone that can make a set of oversized cabinet screens?

    Great Video. Thanks for putting it together and great editing job. Makes buying the screen more worthwhile right from the start!

    I'd pay good money for a series of video's with BK doing different resto steps.

    Online is your best bet if you're looking for Nazdar ink. When I was looking for ink none of the print shops in Minneapolis carried the one we needed.

    Very helpful. I would like to see a video of Bryan Kelly mowing my lawn and restoring my pins. I bet I could learn a lot. Not sure if I could afford the beer.

    How many colors and how detailed is the art you want done? The biggest hurdle would be price, unless you are doing many of the same game it would be much cheaper to use one time use stencils.

    Screened cabinets are screened, when they are still one piece of plywood .

    stencils can't be done, it was a screened cabinet. Only 2 colors and 1 color for the coin door. Reverse image. so If I get screens that I can just flip and use both sides, i'll only need 5 screens. Plus i'll be doing about 5 machines or more, so a set of screens will be worth the money.

    Nice video. If you have more than one backbox to do, can you do them immediately one right after another or does the ink transfer to the other side and you need to clean off the screen inbetween backboxes?

    You do not have to clean the screen, but I would recommend "flooding" the screen with ink again before you do the second backbox. The ink actually transfers when you do the flooding but the purpose of the spacers is to keep it away from the backbox until you run the squeegee over it.
