    as a lot of you might or might not know
    i sell silver magnets, their replacement cathodes
    and trickle tanks ...

    the silver magnet is a little electrolytic device that electroplates the silver out of spent fixer
    the trickle tanks are ion transfer silver recovery units.

    the magnet works well with high concentrations ( well spent fixer )
    the tanks work well with low concentrations ( de-silvered fixer + wash water )

    from now until the end of october
    I will give sean / send apug a 10% donation of every unit sold.

    this is great for sean + us here at apug
    and this is great for us as chemical based photographers because
    we can de-silver our fixer, and get a few dollars back for all the $$$ we spend on film and paper.


    prices ??

    silver magnet is : $55.95 ( + shipping )
    replacement cathode: $21.95 ( + shipping ) ( if ordered at the same time as magnet, no additional shipping )
    trickle tank: $174.90 ( + shipping )


    any questions whatsoever, feel free to PM me here or send me an email: silvermagnet@nanianphoto.com

    THANKS !
    john

    hi fotch

    it is 2 large buckets, one with the media in it ( the bottom )
    and one that is a reservoir ( the top ) and spigot and hose that connects the two.

    the small one ( 3.5 gallons ) can handle 400 gallons of wash water and spent fix
    ( works with low concentrations of silver )
    working with the silver magnet, it can handle 1000 gallons of wash water and de-silvered fix.

    thanks !

    Thanks. What is in the tanks to make them work, steel wool? Looks like it would be overkill for a home darkroom but I thought maybe its just the best thing to do. Again, thanks for the info.

    it is filled with a large heavy mass of steel wool, and sealed ...
    not so much overkill seeing there is fixer+silver in the washwater ...
    and some place doesn't allow that sort of stuff out ...

    there are very small units as well (i'm getting prices on them )
    but they don't have the capacity and it seems they would be a mess
    if you had to pour a tray of wash water through it ...

    I've got my just-received silver magnet quietly working away with the first jug of heavily used fixer that was under my sink. It's got a good coating of white silver deposited on the metal plate.

    I'm kinda curious what the value might be once the device is full. That's got to be a lot of silver.
