counterweight

September 29, 2008 at 7:19 pm

This took less than 45 minutes, was extremely simple, and was all accomplished with stuff I already had around the house.

screen table counterweight setup

It works perfectly: reducing the weight of the screen when I lift it up, and (after I adjusted the amount of water in the bucket) holding it up at an angle so I can get the print out, and don’t have to walk around the table to pull the screen down again.

It is not clear to me why I didn’t do this 2 years ago.

Thanks Mike T. for the practical inspiration.
