Too be honest if I had to do it over again I would go a little different route with this. It does work perfect and has been trouble free. The main problem lays in the fact that to get decent speed of the masking it takes a bit of power and speed on the threaded shafts to make it happen. This makes a bit of noise and vibration.
My Version 2.0 of this if I ever get to it would be to eliminate that shafts all together. Run timming belts horizontal on top and bottom of the screen. The the belts only needs to move as fast as you want the masking to run, can use a nice slow quiet gear reduction motor to do this.
