    Bravo!
    Well-though out and well done.
  2. Re: Doran 400 CFM darkroom fan arrived with rough, uneven louvers

    I have been hoarding two of these for my darkroom build and never used them. Mine are quite well-built - bought them four years ago.
  3. Re: Darkroom Light Sealing and Ventilation

    Where are you?

    I have a Panasonic Whisperline fan that I thought I was going to use in my darkroom build (I built a different ventilation system that’s at tray level instead). It is very powerful...

    This lens was made in Soviet Block era East Germany by a competitor.

    I second this suggestion - Bill at Precision has machined different items for me over the years. Good quality, good service and reasonable prices.

  9. Re: Professional Home film processing 4x5 neg

    If your largest format is 4x5, a good option might be a Jobo ATL-1000 or ATL-1500; these are fully automatic processors which complete the process through the final wash. It takes up little space;...

    I would suggest a Fujinon; I have come to think that Fujinons are an excellent value. The 135mm turns up regularly on auction. I bought mine from Badger Graphics.
