    Re: Salthill

    There stuff looked beautifully designed. I always wanted to check out that insane enlarger, but never met anyone who had one.

    As far as bubbles in the wash water, there's been some pretty extensive research showing it's of no benefit and might actually slightly impede washing, so i wouldn't pay extra money for that feature.

    I have one of Joe's safelights and exchange emails with him every few months.

    I am a former student of Joseph Saltzer and I would be interested in his contacting me. If anyone knows his whereabouts please let him know that Edward Mapplethorpe is trying to track him down. I studied his calibration methods for the Zone System and will begin a large project where his input would be unequalled.

    I have one too. I'm too stupid to figure out how to use it. I can build a multi-server cluster for a hospital, but I can't align my #$%#$#$$ enlarger. Must be a guy thing.

    I'll join the ranks of the salty alignment people. Took me a little while to figure out, but I've been enlarging sharp photos ever since so....

    Hi Ted,

    If you are still in touch with Joe Saltzer I would like to contact him, He seems to have vanished with no trace, in addition to catching up to say hello and see how he is I am trying to source the blotter material that was used in the salthill forced air dryer.

    Any information would be very much appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Michael
