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 makerbeam.com 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.
