Does anybody have experience of using an Ilford CAP 40 paper processor for B&W printing? A local retailer has a couple of second hand units for around US$350 each and it looks like something that would save a lot of time in the darkroom, leaving me to concentrate on the printing, and probably cut down on the mess I usually make taking prints from tray to tray.
What sort of B&W chemistry will work in it?
Are there any design flaws or parts prone to breaking that I should look out for?
Does it need any sort of calibration or regular servicing?
What is the largest size print that you could reliably process?
And finally, is there a different processor that you would recommend instead of the CAP 40?
