    I'll be visiting Milano, Roma and some part of Switzerland in a few days. I'll be travelling by car...

    Would anyone know if there is a place where I can find an archival print washer (the vertical kind) to buy ? It can be used, but it has to be relatively big (for 30x40 cm prints at least).

    Hello George. You may TRY to ask both Unionfotomarket (http://www.unionfotomarket.it/puntivend.php) and SMAF (www.smaf.it) in Milan. If they don't have it, it means it is no longer available at retail.

    As a side note, Fotomatica.it sells them by mail order. I may want to advice you that the prices are OUTRAGEOUS (in the 600 Euro range...). I, on my side, will probably never own one.

    Good luck (with your wallet...).

    Thank you Marco, I will try.

    I know the prices. If I can find something in the 400-500 range, I might take it...

    Cheers
