    Re: Midtone Machines - Automatic Film Processing Machine

    New post up, nearly done designing the custom PCB's that will clear out the current wiring rats-nest and make manufacturing/production of the machine faster and cheaper.

    PCBs are done and working, I've also put together a dummy body shell out of laser cut MDF for testing purposes, that I think also looks pretty good given that it's just for testing:

    The shell, as does other parts sure looks a lot like my Phototherm SSK8

    Yeah as I've said in previous blog posts I didn't intend for it to turn out that way when I started the project, I actually intended it to look a lot more like the filmomat, but as I started working through the various choices I had I worked out that for my target market the various features of the Phototherm unit make a lot more sense. That said the internals are significantly different between the two, different pumps, valves, heater system, control unit etc. So think of it as a smaller and (hopefully) cheaper SSK8 with totally modernised internals that will be just as if not more capable and much easier to use.
