    Re: Broken filmholder, any solutions?

    If you can extend the crack all the way across, you may be able to pull it out the other end.

  2. Re: Uses for Polaroid clearing bucket insert?

    I used mine for negative washing. Push a hose (plastic tube) into the center and it forces the water in at the bottom and over the edge at the top.

    Re: Beginners lesson in dry mounting photos

    I've used many rolls of Colormount over the last 25 years or so on prints up to 30"x40" and never thought it was "floppy". You must be thinking of something else. Colormount looks and feels like MT5....
