    Re: Intrepid 8x10 experiences?

    The big selling points of the Intrepid, are the weight, or lack of, and the cost. But I'd suggest looking at what you really want out of an 8x10 camera and how important those two things are. I was a...

    Re: identifying an Omega enlarger

    yup, certain EL-Nikkor 50 lenses won't allow the turret to spin. Either add another board to decrease lens depth, or use another version of the EL that will work.

    The community lab I volunteer at has a room full of these, minus the dichroic head. None have the microfocus from what I can recall. btw, are you missing the head elevation lever ?

  9. Re: Once again: streaks when developing *some* fiber based paper in Jobo 3063

    When I process 7x17 negs, I use a Simma print roller base vs the Jobo. Also process in ABS tubes that conveniently are the same diameter as the Simma 8x10 drum caps.

    Hope you figure this out !
  10. Re: Once again: streaks when developing *some* fiber based paper in Jobo 3063

    I dunno, but that doesn't sound like enough developer for 16x20 fiber prints. I don't use Experts for paper but I'd probably start with 1 litre. You're reusing it anyways right ?

  23. Re: Jobo 2509n issue: rotates freely on center spindle

    that doesn't look good at all. I also wouldn't glue the reels to the post, if that's what you were thinking of doing. try tape, or buy new posts from B&H or Freestyle.
  24. Re: Jobo 2509n issue: rotates freely on center spindle

    my reels are snug to the post, which also acts as a light baffle. For rotary processing they shouldn't move freely around the post since that would have an affect on the film receiving chemistry....
