    ULF 7X17 Stainless Trays from Costco!

    I have been looking at these for a while and they just went on sale for $10 each, so I bought 4. Sturdy Chafing dishes.

    7X17 fits great, that a piece of X-Ray 7X17 in the first tray. 8X20 would not lay on the bottom, but may work for you. Measure at the store, that's what I did.

    Food grade stainless 18/10, so it may tarnish, but I think I can live with that.

    The advantage is less fluid volume in each tray as compared to using 16x20 trays.

    hi randy

    i was always told never to use metalic trays for darkroom chemistry ( especialy fixer )
    because ion transfer of silver / metal into solution. maybe stainless is non-reactive
    i have no idea ... instead of metal trays, i opted for kitty litter trays , they were cheap as dirt ...

    have fun !

    Another good alternative is seed starting trays. Most are 10x20 inches with or without holes. Obviously the ones without holes are needed. I have had mine for several years, 3 for $10.

    I'm stunned! Why not pay $270 each for Arkay stainless trays?

    Also check Home Depot for small-batch mortar mixing trays in the building supplies area. Big, deep and cheap, made of polyethylene.

    I knew of this tip, but not being a gardener I never looked there.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I did, all 39 just so I could corner the market.

    I'm selfish that way.
