    $100 rotating darkroom doors for sale in Texas

    http://search.ebay.com/darkroom-door...inZtQQsbrsrtZd

    Here's a couple of rotating darkroom doors for sale in Texas. It might even cost you more in gas go pick them up than it would to buy them. They're $100 buy it now.

    I've got mine already. ($75 last year from a graphic arts place in Dallas ditching all non-digital workflow)

    Very cool alternative to being trapped when you gotta be dark.

    I wanted one for a while but the four or five hundred dollar drive is a bit much.

    I got mine when a local lab closed its doors. I got it for free! They just wanted out of the building.
    Now, I drilled a small hole and placed a small lock up high to keep my kids from rotating the door around and around.

    Thanks for the tip. I have been kicking around the idea of building a small darkroom in my garage. Now that I have a door, I will have to do it!!!

    I bought mine several years ago and it cost more to ship it than buy it. I bought it so my family could come down anytime and see what I was doing. sometimes I wish I hadn't!! Mostly I like that they can come and talk to me and I don't have to stop what I am doing. My grandkids are fascinated by the darkroom. So I say go for It.

    Harold,

    Wonderful news. My own rotating door is the centerpiece of my darkroom, which is currently framed out in a converted 1949 one-car garage, but not sheetrocked, ventilated nor has it acquired plumbing. I do have the door, though, and after the frustration of trying to communicate with family members through the door, or telling them I'll be out in a few minutes, or being stuck twiddling my thumbs during very long development-by-inspection sessions, I'm so looking forward to being able to zip in and out of the darkroom regardless of my dark state.


    And now, for tonights quiz question -- can anyone identify the major motion picture in which a rotating darkroom door figures prominantly?
    clue: it was released in 1986.

    A rotating darkroom - wouldn't that make you a bit giddy?

    Picked mine up this afternoon. It is in very reasonable condition with regard to the price. They have one left, if anyone in the Houston area is interested. They tried to talk me into buying both of them, but I don't have a need. The location is at Hwy 290 and FM 2920 near Waller if anyone in Houston is interested. Let me know and I will forward the contact info.

    Well, I would love it (and I am nearby). Maybe if they still have it later, when funds allow......

    What's that I hear? Is that the taunting voice of a darkroom door?
