    Can someone here give me the overall H. and W. of 16x20 and 20x24 darkroom trays? I'm probably going to get the Paterson 16x20s from Freestyle, if you have those and can measure one for me. I consider 20x24 prints the largest I will ever care to make in the future. If you have a tray for those I'd be grateful for its measurements as well. I'm sink sizing.

    Regards,

    19 1/2 by 23 1/4 inches, including the spout.

    For allowing room in a sink, I'd estimate 4 inches in each direction. Mr. Lambrecht's actual measurements are just a tad under that.

    I gave the outside dimension of the tray. To allow for room in the sink, one needs to add to what I reported, because I did not include any.

    Right. That's what I was trying to say, but did so poorly. :redface:

    I'd like the dimensions of the paterson 20x24's if anyone has 'em. I'm not into guessing, plywood and epoxy are expensive.
