    Poor Mans JOBO Film Processor by Nokton48, on Flickr

    This is my "Poor Mans JOBO Film Processor". I have not developed any B&W film in quite a long time. In the Multitank 5 are loaded eighteen sheets of 6.5x9cm sheet film.

    I will try twenty minutes approx in Microphen diluted 1:3.

    The film is odd assortment of expired Eastern Bloc films and some other, so I am excited to see the results.

    My answer to this question has changed.
    Phase I is the darkroom renovation.
    Still more electricals, plumbing and carpentry to be done in the darkroom.
    And also on the opposite side of the plumbed darkroom wall; now the print washing and drying area

    Phase II will be the renovation of my studio, also in the basement of my house.

    Reworked Automega E3 5x7 LED Head 1 by Nokton48, on Flickr

    Today I reworked the Automega E3 5x7 LED Head.

    Much better now, and ready to use

    Reworked Automega E3 5x7 LED Head 2 by Nokton48, on Flickr
    Here is the reworked Automega E3 5x7 LED Head. This how it looks fired up and running.

    As you can see adjusting the diffusers inside has evened out the light quite a bit. Looks good to my eye
    Need to replace the thick black felt light trap at the bottom, and it should be ready to use.

    And, a special THANKS to Larry Gebhardt, for selling me this BEAST. I will make good use of it!

    Replace the florescent lights with Led's. Only show people the view from the vantage point of photo one Put the Enlargers on a dedicated counter or custom built table.

    Thanks for your comments Greg!

    Overlead LEDs replaced the florescents months ago. I need to cut down the E3 baseboard and build a custom table to go under it. Interestingly according to the original catalogs, literature, and instructions (I have obtained all of it I think), this enlarger was designed to be approached from the right side, all the controls are set up that way.

    Washing and Drying Side Sink Preinstallation by Nokton48, on Flickr

    This is the flip side of my darkroom illustrated above^^

    It's the washing and drying side. Green Kreonite sink will be supported on new table, and plumbed in. Yellow "sink" was made for storing two 55 gallon drums side-by-side, will be repurposed as sink (also with new table) to contain the Calumet Fibre 16x20 Print Washer, in the event of a flood. Sink will hold 25 gallons and the washer only has fifteen.

    Petersons Photographic 16x20 fiber print dryer is on the right. I am finishing the wiring and installing the muffin fans.

    Built some shelves today, and added a "red light" indicating I am at work.

    Phase II is bringing in plumber and electrician, also hooking up ceiling fan to suck odors out of the inner darkroom.

    Note the heavy duty dehumidifier and racks of overhead clothespins.

    There's a Petersons Photographic Rapid film dryer that will handle 20 rolls of 35mm or strips of 70mm, on the far right.
