  2. Re: Darkroom Sink - Delta 1 TRP (Temperature Regulated Processing) Package

    I have a Delta 1 from c. 1996 which is in beautiful shape still. I wax it about once a year with carnauba car wax, and I'm studious about chemicals. I have no control panel or water temp control. The...

    Re: Chemical age -- metol

    I'm happy to answer your questions. I used to think I was an able writer and communicator.

    Hi, koraks. Thanks for your comments. Allow me clarify my thinking and procedures here.

    If one uses a 211 or 212 bulb in a condenser enlarger, as I did for years, the unfiltered light gives the...

    I breathe a public sigh of relief, that the latest neg is right on target, though I'm still surprised that I needed 33% more development plus additional agitation to get it. Now I'll have to adjust...

    Welcome, Basil. You're starting out LF with 8x10? Quite a challenge! Perhaps you'd share your other photographic background and photographic interests. Looking forward to seeing your work.

    Thanks to all. My metol easily passes the color test.

    Part of my problem is that I am switching to the LED from a coldlight, which I was using sans 40Y, so it tended to be a bit contrasty to...
