Make a screen printing press to print t shirts for almost nothing. I built this one out of scrap wood and a few things from the hardware store. I do screen printing as a hobby, but you could easily start a small business printing custom t shirts for bands or teams or whatever. Or come up with fun designs and sell the t shirts online or at swap meets or whatever.
This homemade design can be easily modified. Change the size and shape of the shirt board to print long sleeves or sweatpants legs. You can probably even make something to print hats. This is a pretty easy DIY project.
p.s. You don’t need all the tools I used. You can do most of it with a regular handsaw. It will just take longer. I had the tools, so I used them.
Here are some free plans that have more detail:
