  1. Re: Midtone Machines - Automatic Film Processing Machine

    The first version of the Phototherm was the FP-1, although rapid kind of implies something like a x-ray film dev process.

    Congrats! Just checking your site, I would refrain from mentioning other labs - I get your point but its distasteful :)

    Yes that is what I was planning to use but I don't think I'll bother with a 8x10 enlarger for now, 4x5 is more than enough. Have you actually used said setup though? Please check my signature for...

    I have posted WTB ages ago with no responses yet, kind of just gets lost in there. Strange that you cannot have a discussion in the threads either, other forums allow that and members can pitch in...

    Still would of been possible to run it in the dark to develop B&W and test for even dev :) But probably easier to just go ahead and order sample, hopefully no changes will be required (still would of...

    Nice, you didn't want to test the 3D printed one for development before then?

  17. Re: Midtone Machines - Automatic Film Processing Machine

    Andrew is probably trying to test the prototype about now. Since we haven't heard back, just thought I'd point out some design oversights that may prevent some headaches;

  19. Re: Midtone Machines - Automatic Film Processing Machine

    Can you elaborate on the light trap? I haven't had any issues.

    Your designs look about the same size as a 4-roll tank I mean I don't see how it could be any smaller or larger regardless. Sorry I...
  20. Re: Midtone Machines - Automatic Film Processing Machine

    Just a thought; since the design of the tank is pretty much identical to the phototherm, perhaps you should also make it compatible? Just retrofit the probes and contacts and sell the same part as a...
  21. Re: Midtone Machines - Automatic Film Processing Machine

    I really wouldn't worry too much, I think the problem with the Phototherms was that the control and SW was so rudimentary with no overrides or fail-safes (say if the tank couldn't be identified via...
  22. Re: Midtone Machines - Automatic Film Processing Machine

    Sorry I meant the external heating pads on the tank will still need to be well over process temperature = poor transfer coefficient through the drum. Unless you preheat the drum itself or have more...
  23. Re: Midtone Machines - Automatic Film Processing Machine

    That is fair enough - I was going to ask what kind of volume production you were expecting. I have used heat resistant epoxy-resins from Smooth on (Epoxacast HT) there is a good store there in NZ too...
