    Re: HP Combi Tank

    Ive been using the Combi-Plan for 10 years. It's the only way I've ever developed 4x5 sheet film. Some people don't like the fill or drain time. I find it to be about 30 to 40 seconds. To...

    I just finished an 8x10 enlarger project myself. I use my 8x10 camera which I mount onto a chassis that I made. The most expensive part was the Aristo Light Head. Without that and the Camera it...
  4. Re: Acid Stop Bath with Ammonium Thiosulfate fixers. Good, Bad, or indifferent?

    Dave, you are correct. According to the MSDS, there is an additional component not listed on the label: Ammonium Hydroxide. The complete list of ingredients is:

    Re: HP CombiPlan question

    I've been using my Combi-Plan for 10 years. It's the only way I process my 4x5 negs. Contrary to some opinions expressed here, the chemistry does not drip down from the fill hole in the lid. It...

    Re: Combi-Plan Film Clip Repair

    I've been using my CombiPlan for nearly 10 years without a problem. However, after 10 years of constant use, the plastic ratchets have started to wear so the clip can slide a bit. However, with the...

    Gene, could you elaborate? I've never used film hangers. For 4x5 I've used the CombiPlan for the last 10 years and been quite satisfied with it. More recently with 8x10, I've only ever used trays,...
