    Re: Tray developing problem - 8x10

    Re: Tray developing problem - 8x10

    Spend about 10 minutes in the dark to let your eyes acclimate to the condition before you check for light leaks. All of my trays have rounded corners. Only stainless ones (the minority of trays used)...

    Re: Tray developing problem - 8x10

    What format? 14x17? 11x14? I had a Wisner 11x14 Technical Field that converted to 12x20 / 8x20. Heavy sucker. Changed it out to a Canham 8x20 wood and a V11 Deardorff.
