    Kodak Blotter Roll Dryer 1 by Nokton48, on Flickr

    Kodak Blotter Roll Dryer 2 by Nokton48, on Flickr

    Yesterday I made this Kodak Blotter Roll Dryer, yet another Peterson's Photographic home darkroom project. I have some old fibre paper I want to start testing. This is a quick way to dry it. Right now the dryer has a 100W heating element, which is interchangeable. Also I want to add a switch and a timer for this unit. Adding some filter material is a good idea. Gentle dry heat is the result so far.

    2nd Omegalite rebuilt and Petersons Film Washer by Nokton48, on Flickr

    Petersons 16x20 Matte Fiber Print Dryer by Nokton48, on Flickr

    Three unfinished projects I have been working on here and there, as I have time. Two Omega Omegalite 4x5 heads (both trashed) combined into one perfectly working unit. First unit had a bad transformer, bought the second unit for parts. Attaching some adhesive foam rubber to the bottom, and it's finished Good as new and cheap!

    Second project is Petersons Photographic Rapid Film Washer. All plastic pipe is cut and tightly fitting just needs glued. Shown with stainless steel rod I bent to hold eight 120 steel reels (my biggest Nikor tank).

    Third project is Petersons Photographic 16x20 Matte Fibre Print Dryer, all wiring completed except for the power cord. Four 640W wired in series pulls 600 watts, so I will keep the power cord short in length

    Anybody know where I can get 16x20 photographic blotters, with muslin one sided? Been buying the plain blotters they sell cheaply at freestyle.

    After the first of the year, I have a really big printing project coming up. Material from twenty five years ago.

    From my humungeous stash of original 70mm Plus-X expired 1981. A nice photographer GAVE me eight rolls along with some darkroom stuff.
    It develops well in Microdol-X straight in a JOBO Multitank spun on an old Uniroller.
