When you are switching to/using S-mesh screens are you using static aluminum frames or are all using rollers?

I am using rollers now.  We were using shur loc frames for a while.  There are several good places that can stretch thin thread up reallly well.

Bolt mesh on rollers.  Save for 1 press op here, nobody has used any mesh but thin thread so handling it is already normal and the screens are very long lived. 

Thin thread is great on statics but you need to nudge your screen maker to use it.  We love the statics we get from Graphic Screen Fashion with permanent blockout.

We use
110
150.
225
305
We do a lot of shirts that are printed white without a underbase and use 110 for this.
Most of our mesh is Saati but recently I got a roll of 225/40 from NBC.   So far it's great
We use only statics and stretch on a pneumatic stretcher I built, I can get up to 30N but normally go up to 28N a little less on 305.
