    Re: Budget temp valve

    Thanks Brian.
    That is similar to what I am using now.
    I want to go 'upscale' though and have an active temp control system.

    Budget temp valve

    Hi all.
    Any recommendations on a budget temp valve for B&W?
    I will set it at 68F/20C and likely never move it.
    I would like a valve that I can control temp and volume separately.

    The 500H has a separate mixing box for 35, 120 and 4X5.

    Paper to line an enlarger mixing box

    Hi all.
    I just got a used Ilford MG 500H system and the 4X5 mixing box liner is very dirty.
    My guess is it wasn't stored properly. I cannot find anyone offering a kit to replace the paper. Is there...

    No more Tr-X & Plus-X in Canada!?

    Hi all.
    Can it be true?
    My local pro photo shop tells me they cannot get Tri-X or Plus-X in 35mm, 120/220 or any sheet sizes anymore. Is it just THEY that cannot get it or Kodak Canada is not...

    Re: Advise on my next lens:75 or 90?

    Hello all.
    Thanks for the comments and I have a good bit to chew over.
    One poster mentioned that the 75 is 'harder' to use then the 90.

    Re: Advise on my next lens:75 or 90?

    Hi again.

    Re: How sick is this 90 Angulon?

    Thanks for the suggestions I will try photographing a newspaper.
    Can this be fixed or is it not worth the trouble?

    They seem to be just...
