  2. Re: Help request - Ilex #3 bulb and time not working

    I use Kodak movie film cleaner. It's an old, now banned, CFC-113. I just squirt about a milliliter at a time. Once I have the shutter working, I close the shutter blades and drip drop by drop...

  4. Re: Covid-19: Ilford factory in Mobberley shutting down for now

  8. Re: Covid-19: Ilford factory in Mobberley shutting down for now

  9. Re: C-41 / E-6 tank inversion or wand for agitation?

    Follow the recommended procedure. I've processed a lot of color film over the years in Paterson tanks. The wand is used for the first 30 seconds to vigorously agitate. Then put on the cap and give...

    In wood you can cheat a couple of millimeters by rocking the hole saw using a hand drill. I have mostly wooden boards that I get from Zimba (or something like that) off of Ebay. These are machined,...

    I sure wish Turner still made camera bellows. It looks like (last I looked) they were doing well. Too busy to make bellows for cameras.

  21. Re: Covid-19: Ilford factory in Mobberley shutting down for now

    I've got plenty of film and paper. I will be saving my meager earnings to buy more Ilford products. I do think I will send a short order for some sheet film. No panic purchases.
