    Instructions for Zone VI print washer ??

    A generous friend just gave me a Zone VI 20 x 24 printwasher. I think all the parts are there - except the instructions. I have not been able to find them online.

    Any suggestion for locating a copy?

    I don't think there is anything you need to know, unless it's about assembling the various acrylic parts. It's pretty intuitive, the water supply is connected to the small top L-shaped tube, it drains through the large diameter outlet on the opposite side. you can connect a hose there or just let it drain into your darkroom sink if you have one. (I don't.)

    but I avoid reading print as my vision is poor

    To save water This came from a customer in CA back in the 80"s when they had water woos.
    Fill
    Run 10 minutes
    Let sit 45 minutes with no running water.
    Drain half way down by removing bottom drain plug.
    Start water run 15 minutes.
    Water setting is a low.

    Get a stain test to test the best time to run the print washer.
    I found with mine I let it sit for 1 hour.

    There is a new letter where Fred talks about testing to find the best way to wash prints.
    Don't ask wiitch one I do not have my new letter any more.

    In newsletters #18 and #52, Fred talked some about print washing. Might be worth a review.
