Screen Printer Parts

Hey Folks,
New user to the screen printing world…my friend recently bought a screen printing business and we found an old press that doesnt have enough spring tension to hold the screens up or down. Anyone familiar with spring tensions and such for such equipment? I can get springs from McMaster-Carr but do not have a clue as to what the tensions should be. If you can help, I would REALLY appreciate it!

Thank you Much,
Al Conforti

Get some bungee cords and tie the arm to another on the opposite side.
