    Our house was built in 1912 and also has a low basement ceiling. Like your house the floor joists are uneven. I used oriented strand board for the ceiling and walls. It has worked great and well...
  2. Re: Framing a darkroom against concrete wall

    Re: nuarc xeon printer, front shield?

    On those units the front shield was dark plex or something similar. The internal fans should cool the unit. I think the easiest solution would be a black out curtain. That is what all large plate...

    Re: UV Lightsource

    Re: arista ortho litho film 3

    I have not used this film, but my gut feeling is the emulsion is the grey side. If you lick your finger it should stick to the emulsion and not the base. Another test is to scrape the film with a...

  17. Re: Removing sellotape to scan at full size

    If that is red litho tape it should come off easily. The wild card is how long has it been on the film and how was the negative stored. The gum on that tape will clean off easily with film cleaner.

    Re: Omega Automega D3

    I did use the autofocus but found that the focus did shift when moving the enlarger up and down. However fine focusing with a grain magnifier was quick because the negative stayed close in focus.
