    I'm not sure they're specifically made for photographic use
    -seller might not be either

    Thought they looked cool and no doubt would be perfect for alt stuff


    Doubt I can go get these but if someone has a company name or something I'll be able to search/ebay these things in the future

    I would use caution - pyrex is great when you need heat resitsnce, but they are heavy. For me heavy, glass, and wet are a no-no's in the sink. I would be afraid of letting one slip handling it with wet hands, and then there would be glass bits to gingerly gather from everywhere.

    A Pyrex tray on a light source can be very useful when intensifying or reducing negatives.

    I've used Pyrex trays successfully for toning. They are easy to get clean. They are also heavy and bulky.

    I use them for processing sheet film. The bread pan is perfect for 4x5 and there is a casserole that is perfect for 8x10. I also use the bread pan for my photoflo and for washing 4x5 film with a syphon washer.

    I don't suppose there is anyone near Rochester who would go pick these up if I paid shipping to Memphis? This is odd because I collect old Pyrex and the ilk, plus I am building a darkroom.
