  1. Re: Suggest a place that can make some developing tubes

    if you have access to a lathe, I'd experiment with shaving out the centre to create the barrel shape. would depend on how much barrel you need as the walls will be thinner. Richard's idea of heating...

    what Ron said. I'd probably remove them and placed them in a very well padded box. do no scratch them ! secure all loose parts that can be removed (make sure to mark what they are and where they go)....

    Re: (possibly) taking the large jump

    I'd suggest looking into 5x7 (am presuming you're shooting 4x5) and making contacts. I find 4x5 too small for contacts(ymmv) but 5x7 (and 8x10 for that matter) is almost a sweet spot.
  6. Re: Contact Printing Large Format negatives with a Leica Focomat V35?

    YIKES !!! no wonder the price is right.I have two spare Focotars if you decide to get the enlarger. Aperture ring is not super silky smooth. Might be worth seeing what the enlarger comes with (colour...

    Re: Film changing bag or changing tent?

    bags are smaller and fold up small. tents are larger but have much needed interior room/volume. a must imo for loading holders.
  8. Re: Contact Printing Large Format negatives with a Leica Focomat V35?

    if everything works properly, $200 is an absolute steal. make sure the lens aperture ring is smooth and not sticky as that could mean you could nudge the af off a bit. it had three modules, a b/w...
  9. Re: Contact Printing Large Format negatives with a Leica Fotomat V35?

    I have the same enlarger as well and it's not a problem I've encountered. The light will be even across the frame so I don't why you need to worry about vignetting. You're not enlarging the LF...
