    It's a five-foot sink made by Delta. I ordered it from Calumet years ago. I built the stand for it, which, for a guy like me, who wouldn't know a plumb line from a plum pudding, was a major undertaking. But, shockingly, it turned out well.

    I thought some people here might be interested in the darkroom at my high school. The Beseler 45 on the left is mine, now taken home as I am graduating and moving to university.

    Okay, I thought I'd post some pictures of the last details of my darkroom.Click image for larger version.

ID:	219783. I'd never been thrilled with the amount of air movement in the darkroom because of the light trap I had to install on the AC unit. I found these little fans at a "Bin Store" in Trenton GA. They use a Android cell phone charger for power and cost me a buck each. They've increased the air movement by quite a bit. A "Bin Store" is a place that buys Amazon returns by the pallet load and resells them.

    I'd built a print dryer a while back out of scraps of wood, a blow dryer from a thrift store and cake cooling racks from Dollar Tree. This one will hold 18 8 X 10 prints. When I have time, I'm going to have wood cut for a better looking unit at Home Depot. Click image for larger version.

    Okay, here's shot of my film dryer. I used a metal locker from Ollie's and an old bonnet style hair dryer and a air filter for a riding mower to filter the incoming air.Click image for larger version.

    After our move, I was left with a corner in a room.
    It'll do for now. It's kind of cozy but no running water.
    I thank NOVA for its vertical print processor every time.

    Re: Lets See Your Darkroom

    My darkroom is tiny and can accommodate up to 11x14 trays if arranged in tiers. However I decided to print an image 12x16 for a particular space in my house so had to expand operations into the garage. This time of year the garage is the perfect temperature but cold and hot days this would not be an option though I could generally work between 68-80 degrees. The doors are not light proof either so I put a sheet of drywall at the end of the table to block direct light and kept images face down during developer > fix. The dim room light was just enough to let me see what I was doing and the graylab timer in the regular darkroom was just bright enough to follow the second hand positions. This has me thinking I could set up a wall mounted shelf that folds out of the way when not in use.

    I didn't know the Beseler 4x5 was available on a non motorized frame?
