    Had a go at printing my outdated Kodak Technical Pan snaps using my 1984 Mamiya C220 onto some ORWO BH 1 Universal Glossy 18x24 cms I want to use up. Enlarger was my Durst M601 + 75mm f4.5 Wray 'Supar' that came with the 'Gift' Durst . I used Geoffrey Crawley's Print Developer Formula 1+3
    all 135mm f4.5 'Blue Dot' Sekors

    I like the second one, Pete, but I don't believe it's Essex!

    Very jealous of you both - still too much to do here (including working for a living) to transform the outside lav!

    Pete doesn't though. I'm still trying to fit in gardening, cricket (maybe not this year...) and getting the rest of the house sorted...

    You mean there's a very minor incline?

    Nice prints, Pete!

    I had kitchen tops on both sides of the kitchen. One, next to the sink became the wet bench, and the opposite top was the dry bench. I would be concerned about splashing fixer onto the easel with your set up. You must be a more careful worker than me.

    I'm lucky this is just a darkroom in a utility room, permenant :)

    Stephen : Tidier than MY darkroom sink set-up ! I have to make space for my 'NOVA' 16x12" Slot Processor as well -- when I lay out larger dishes I have to put NOVA into bath in bathroom - ( Don't tell THE WIFE ! )

    Just make sure it's not plugged in when she's in the bath;)

    I did contemplate a Nova when I could get one almost new on Ebay but I like to see the print

    That Agfa C66 (I had one new years back and was lucky to get a MINT one again last year) is a Durst M605 re built for Agfa specs, and was advertised on Ebay as complete with an Agfa Magnolar (Durst) lens £50.00 It came with, YES !!! a Rodenstock Rodagon f2.8 50mm, I knew they didn't know what they were selling, I didn't see the lens 'till I got home
