    Nelson gold toner and Warmtone Fiber

    The cost of buying Nelson from Photogs' Formulary, it's high capacity and keeping properties notwithstanding, will keep it out of my darkroom for a while, at least, but I am curious as to whether...

    Re: how large (or small) are your prints?

    Although I printed some 16x20 color and a few B&W long ago, using a Cibachrome drum I recently sold, I'm content with 11x14 paper as a maximum now, and can just fit 3 such tray, and an elevated wash...

  8. Re: Calling Tachihara Users, re: washers and cams

    I ordered some Delrin and nylon sheet, but both are too slippery, and the Delrin is too thick anyway. I have tried stacking two 0.05mm washers, and initially, at least, the grip appears to be...

    Re: Dark cloth

    For years I used a plain piece of blackish fabric, medium weight. The better part of my 4x5 work was indoors; the cloth was adequate. When I returned to 4x5 several years ago, I bought two 1.3-yard...

  16. Re: Calling Tachihara Users, re: washers and cams

    Reveni spot meter

    Came across this today. A new spot meter, a number of different reviews on You Tube. Good price point for those who find its viewing-lensless design amenable. Good to see a new item in this field!
