I'm a screen printer from way back.  I was dreamily thinking you'd found an automatic one.

I backed Sam too.  He doesn't seem to have made it universal and inexpensive enough,
no more presence.  Too bad.

So, without easy US access to low cost makerbeam, I'd make a milled plastic design,
using thickness for stiffness.  I've got some 1/2 inch polypropylene
to try prototyping with, and then go to production for US customers.  Shipping across the seas
kills sales of hobby/low-volume-niche-market tools by adding $30 US...for nothing
but delivery, where that costs $5-$8 here for that weight.

I do like your idea of frame-less stencils attached by holes specified in the stencil itself.

A feature that would really help sell a full manual screen printing frame is adjustability
for registration.
