    Hello,

    I was looking to purchase some 16x20 trays because I wanted to start printing a bit larger in some cases. Then I came by this LINK. I was thinking, perhaps this might be a better idea, as if I decide to do 20x24 in the future, this will be able to also.

    So does anyone have experience with this print processor? Do you suppose I could easily do smaller prints in it also, such as 8x10 or 11x14? Finally, I am practicing some alternative processes too, is something like this able to develop Kallitypes?

    Sorry for the long string of questions, but thanks for taking the time to read.

    Regards,
    Martin

    One tray will do for One print. Develop, fix, rinse, hca,
    rinse, then three or four washes. All in the same tray.
    That's the rough of it. Minimal amounts of more than
    the usual dilutions of chemistry are used once.

    I've refined the method and now use a protracted
    hca following the fix and that followed by A protracted
    still water diffusion wash.

    Perhaps I should detail the procedure in an article.
    I also have bigger prints in mind which could make
    use of the single and/or double tray processing
    method. I don't anticipate making any more
    than a very few very large prints. Dan
