    I have a few surplus items, which I would be happy to give away, free, though a small donation to a charity of your choice would be appreciated. Ideally, I would pass the items at our next print showing in Dublin, in November:
    • Scoponet focussing magnifier
    • Unused Calumet bamboo print tongs
    • Paterson triple display process timer (needs new battery)
    • Paterson safelight VF (dome style)
    • Viponel enlarging timer (a bit beaten, works but hasn't been used for 20 years)
    • Restem 8x10 paper safe with an automatic dispenser
    • AP accordion bottle

    Hi Rafal, I would be interested in the safelight and accordion bottle if that is not too greedy.

    If they haven't gone, I'd appreciate the tongs and enlarger timer....

    Peter, Brendan, Fran, your wishes shall be fulfilled. Thanks for giving those items a second life. Any takers for the remaining ones? The paper safe is quite cool: it gives you a single sheet as you open the door by pushing on it down. I just don't do much 8x10...

    Rafal, I am doing more and more 8x10 printing with the price of paper so I could take the paper safe off you. Could get it at the next meet up and will make a donation. Thanks

    Martin, it's yours, and a fun item too. Make sure to test the light seal, it's been a while since I used it.

    Hi Rafal,

    I saw your post for the meeting tomorrow, and if you still don't have a taker for the focus finder I would be glad to take it.

    Thank you, everyone, for giving those items a new home, and thanks for making your charity donations. I appreciate your generosity, very much.

    It was wonderful meeting you all in person, yesterday. Analogue photographer community is not as large as it once was, and our regular get-togethers are important to make it more human and less solitary. Thank you for making the time for the meeting, I think there were 12 of us. See you in the spring, or sooner!
