    The Lawson Scout manual screen printing machine is made in the U.S.A. with an all-steel construction and sturdy mechanical components. This makes the Scout manual printing press a great press for printing t-shirts. It's small and lightweight for one person to move anywhere it is needed. Great for printing in your basement, garage, home or apartment. This is an ideal screen printing machine for schools, clubs, beginners, DIYers and the serious hobby printer.

    The main difference between the Scout and the HD-MAX is the Scout press is not modular in design. It is only available in 1 and 4 colors, and with either a single (1) or 4 print stations/platens. The standard Scout uses adjustable dual registration bolts. A floor stand with leveling feet is optional.

    Buy the Scout if you are looking for a small, compact and space saving screen printing press or want to save money.
