    I'm on a budget and looking for your old stuff.

    I need:

    5x7 trays - at least 4
    thermometer
    graduated cylinders - several any size
    safelight - for b&w paper
    tongs
    chemical storage bottles - 1 and 2 liter or maybe even gallon

    let me know what you have and how much you want for it.

    thanks for helping a broke guy get started :D

    Baby bottles are great 8 oz. graduates, 16 oz. measure cups are good for, well, 16.0z. 5X7 trays can be had at the $1 Store...any plastic food storage contaner of the correct size works. Electronic fever thermometers are good for color work, Freestyle has a $5 B&W thermometer. Focth has good bottles. I use wooden clothes pins (turned around in the spring, so the skinny ends close together) for tongs.

    Three used graduated cylinders (100 ml, 1000 ml/32 oz, 42 oz), a pack of clips for drying prints, some clips for drying film. If you can you it, it's yours for the cost of shipping (3 lbs) from Tampa, FL.

    Did you need a clock/timer? Ive got a few Gralab 300's tat are looking for a new home. Im not looking for much money,

    Get some real trays, ive tried using dollar store ones a long time ago and the aluminum ones disappeared when I left chemistry in them, never used $1 plastic, its just too flimsy.

    The BEST bottles for chemical storage (liquid or powder) are in your waste basket: soda, water, juice: the clear, brittle plastic ones you see everywhere. They do not 'breathe' and I keep color dev for YEARS. But.....you MUST fill to the very top and they don't 'squeeze' well. Get different sizes. I also use 50 ml liquor bottles I occasionally find on the sidewalk. Of course, glass is just as good.
