    Re: Continuous Agitation?

    I put my Stearman Press on a laboratory tray "shaker" - although it isn't shaking as much as tipping. Worked fine - no noticeable swirl marks on the test 8 x 10..

    My sister just got one of these, but no report yet on how good it is. She just wants to archive old photos so hi quality isn't a high priority for her. But it might work out OK if you aren't using it...

    159mm Wollensak f/9.5 is a great lens IMHO. not too huge and I've been happy with the results. Not huge. A tad dim, but has worked well for me

    Re: 210 mm Fujinar - any opinions?
