    A good source of trays with smooth bottoms for developing is Pyrex glass baking dishes.
    Whether bought new or in Rummage/yard/garage sales they work well and no problems with chemical stains as with some plastics.
    I tend to procrastinate on stuff. One of these days I'll do something about it.

    Re: Developing B&W sheet film at home for a total beginner!

    When I started out (with the old Tmax 100 in Tmax RS) I developed in trays, one or at most two at a time. A bit wasteful with the developer perhaps. I got the impression from reading various sources that it would be sort of hard to do, especially with Tmax films (I guess the John Sexton article on the LF home page got me a bit worried).

    Looking back, it was easier than it was made out to be. No problems when going slow, checking two times and a bit of care in handling the film. If I would start over again, I would do what I do now - tank on roller, with a few sheets at a time - much less waste and hogging less space when you have to work outside darkroom facilities.
