    Re: Lens Cleaner

    The lens pens use activated charcoal, I believe. I have a bottle of ROR--haven't used it yet.

    Re: Just 3D printed a technika board

    I have no idea of the cost involved vs buying a factory or other aftermarket lens board, but wouldn't sending the file to have it printed in metal be preferable?

    Re: Paint your negative carrier in black

    I looked it up and wouldn't recommend No. 2 or No. 3 for a negative carrier. It is fragile and does not handle abrasion.

    Re: Paint your negative carrier in black

    Probably not, it was a school project from 13 years ago. But maybe he has had the opportunity to put it into practical use. Or he could share the plans or shots of a model if he made one.
