    Alternative sources for Mounting Fluid?

    Hi everyone. Been a while since I've been here.

    Yes, I'm still scanning for a few people here and there. I have some consistent customers that keep sending me things every month or two. I am still photographing as well, like all of you.

    I just got a set of 5x7's to scan and looked at my mounting fluid supplies and they are very low. I called Aztek and they have a shipment that's held up in Germany. I can't find Prazio online, and Scanscience's phone won't accept messages (thought I would give Lumina a try). I figured there's someone here who knows who is still in business, and where I might get some mounting fluid.

    Hope you are all doing fabulously well.

    Lenny

    You can use Gamsol mineral spirits which has compared favorably to Lumina on this forum and otherwise: https://www.largeformatphotography.i.../t-136678.html

    Thanks, D. Much appreciated, that's why I came here. Minimum from Lumina turned out to be a $70 bottle (liter) and $30 shipping....

    In the old days of the printing business we used baby oil for mounting transparencies. I can get messy.
