    Re: Need Help With a Repair of my Ebony

    Have you checked to see if the focusing mechanism is just out of alignment? Have you rolled it off the end of the racks? Try this: roll the front or rear standard off the rack (which ever is the...

    Re: Hole Saw For Commercial Ektar Lens

    As Duolab123 said, for a metal board, find a home machinist who can cut a perfect hole for you. It will be worth a couple of bucks versus a hack job you can do with a hole saw.

    Re: New Dektol Mixes Dark Brown

    A friend gave me a number of old (really very old) packages of Dektol. They mixed up brown like yours, but work fine. Interesting that your new developer looks like very old developer.
  8. Re: Stainless Steel Sink & Oxidation / Rust?

    A good thought. It would bother me eternally to live with a badly wrinkled sink like you’ve got. Worth a small investment now for a lifetime of darkroom esthetics.

    Re: Is Steve Hopf still active?

    Yeah! What’s wrong with fresnels?

    I think the Cham 5x7 has a beautiful screen.

    You could try Maxwell, though. (Adding “though” at the end sounds a bit Trumpian, though.)

    If the screw is too long, get a shorter screw—it’s a hardware store item. Alternately, file the screw down.

    In the link you provided, Grimes refers to them as a “sliding clamp.” As good a name as any other you’ll hear.

    Have you gotten it to light up yet? If not, I’d get it working before deciding to undertake some expensive modifications. The 2000W bulb may work fine and last a long time.
