  1. Re: de Vere 5108 enlarger 'control box' and neg holder

    Would this work? It's 115v rather than 240, but would it work if you used a 115v circuit and different bulbs? This is an extra one which came with my enlarger when I picked it up. This one has been...

    Re: DIY 8x10 (or larger) Enlarger Chassis

    I made the first print with the enlarger yesterday, and it works very well. perhaps too well. By that I mean the LEDs are too bright, to make this print I needed to stop down to f/45 on the lens,...

    Re: DIY 8x10 (or larger) Enlarger Chassis

    Thanks for testing! I've also got a rodagon 300 non g, but am hoping the 240 will work, as the ceilings in my basement where I eventually hope to have the darkroom aren't very tall.

    Re: DIY 8x10 (or larger) Enlarger Chassis

    Probably not black, since that doesn't really fit the aesthetic I want. Likely a matte grey.

    Looking at the rodagon G 240mm, there might be some fall off towards the edges, but that could be...

    My last negative carrier was inspired by his, using springs and tiny holes punched in the negative corners. For this I'm wanting to avoid punching holes. Hopefully it will work, but if not I can go...

    You can buy liquid light at B&H, but I think it may be easier to use a digital heat transfer method, also safer as I'm not sure what chemicals are in liquid light

  17. Re: DIY ULF Lenses - 3D printing resin, epoxy casting or sand casting?

    I think casting will produce far better lenses than printing, even with SLA printers I think you'll get small deformations inside which can cause trouble.
