    Anyone out there have experience with a Devill processer? It's a hand cranked roller system for large rolls of B&W prints.
    Thanks, Rich

    Simon,
    Could you tell me why it's not worth it? Are there downsides to using it? We already have one but have not actually used it yet. Maybe I should tell you what we intend to use it for. The goal is to make 10x4 foot B&W fiber prints. It has 4 trays which would be enough for RC prints but we will have to make a few more for fiber and probably a full size sink for a final wash. It will be a big undertaking, but...

    Sorry for the late awnser and my bad spelling!

    10x4 sound sweet! Its nothing bad about the crank its just if you dont have one and is thinking about buying one its not worth the money. It makes things easyer for sure having one. Myself makes 4x8foot prints and I just used the crank once to try. Just was not worth the money to buy new. If you have one i suggest to use it.
