First post. I'm an Englishman in Thames, NZ, originally from Newcastle upon Tyne.

I've had a darkroom for a couple of months now and have really been enjoying myself in it, spending most nights trialling by error. Everytime i google a question i iend up on this site, so i thought 'sack-it' might as well join up!

Current set-up is B&W only with a Krokus 3 enlarger (picked up from the dump for $20!)

I will be asking ALOT of questions in the near future

Here is current darkroom set-up:-

Welcome, Paul! Every darkroom needs a Zip! Passed close to Thames back in 1986. Nice looking country.

You have LOT of space. My darkroom is tiny compared to this. And I have seen much smaller ones than mine.
Welcome to APUG. It's a friendly place.

Where's the beer fridge?

Welcome - somewhat of a change from Newcastle to Thames is it not? ;)
