Buy It Now!

I bought this unit whenever they rolled out last year, and man am I glad I did! I was working with a DIY unit that I had made, it had its limitations, and the exposure times were less than desirable. After I started using this unit it sped my exposures up to warp speed! Completely affordable little unit if you ask me. If you’re starting out, just get it! You won’t regret it! It’ll save you a lot of headache down the road. One thing that may be a learning curve is exposing 20x24 screens. It’s ideal for 16x20 but all I have is 20x24. If you coat an entire 20x24 screen it won’t expose the edges. But it works fine for these screens, it just takes patience. Measure out what you need, after a while you’ll develop a knack for it and won’t need to measure anymore.

Amazing results!

I built an easy and cheap box lined with aluminum foil and wired in two CFL’s and thought I was pretty smart for avoiding the sun in my cyanotype exposures. Wrong! This LED UV unit is as good as the sun! And as fast! And cooler! And to my eye sharper! If you are serious get serious tools. Baselayr X1620 LED Exposure Unit - 16x20in Review

Excellent but

Overall, great budget exposure unit once you get the timing down. Unfortunately, mine did not come with the 21 step exposure calculator like the description indicates. We just opened and started using it, but being several months since receiving this, I doubt I'll get it sent to me.

Building my hobby slow but sure

This exposure unit x1620 LED is such a nice compact piece of equipment. I haven’t burned a screen yet, I’ve been using vinyl stencils to do simple designs on T shirts for a few friends and family. I’m told I can put a 20x24 screen on it and only miss 2” around the frame that won’t expose. That will more than likely work for me for now. The only thing I would change is to have the glass secured to the box instead of sitting between little tabs to keep it from sliding off. I may try a bit of tape on at least 2 sides to hold it down. Good unit for starting out, or as a hobby like me for now.
