CRAZY SILVER MAGNET AND SILVER RECOVERY "APUG KICKBACK" THROUGH THE END OF OCTOBER
as a lot of you might or might not know
i sell silver magnets, their replacement cathodes
and trickle tanks ...
the silver magnet is a little electrolytic device that electroplates the silver out of spent fixer
the trickle tanks are ion transfer silver recovery units.
the magnet works well with high concentrations ( well spent fixer )
the tanks work well with low concentrations ( de-silvered fixer + wash water )
from now until the end of october
I will give sean / send apug a 10% donation of every unit sold.
this is great for sean + us here at apug
and this is great for us as chemical based photographers because
we can de-silver our fixer, and get a few dollars back for all the $$$ we spend on film and paper.
silver magnet is : $55.95 ( + shipping )
replacement cathode: $21.95 ( + shipping ) ( if ordered at the same time as magnet, no additional shipping )
trickle tank: $174.90 ( + shipping )
any questions whatsoever, feel free to PM me here or send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Make sure when you contact me
you mention this ad, i recognize some names
but not everyone .... THANKS
What does the trickle tank look like?
it is 2 large buckets, one with the media in it ( the bottom )
and one that is a reservoir ( the top ) and spigot and hose that connects the two.
the small one ( 3.5 gallons ) can handle 400 gallons of wash water and spent fix
( works with low concentrations of silver )
working with the silver magnet, it can handle 1000 gallons of wash water and de-silvered fix.
Thanks. What is in the tanks to make them work, steel wool? Looks like it would be overkill for a home darkroom but I thought maybe its just the best thing to do. Again, thanks for the info.

it is filled with a large heavy mass of steel wool, and sealed ...
not so much overkill seeing there is fixer+silver in the washwater ...
and some place doesn't allow that sort of stuff out ...
there are very small units as well (i'm getting prices on them )
but they don't have the capacity and it seems they would be a mess
if you had to pour a tray of wash water through it ...
I've got my just-received silver magnet quietly working away with the first jug of heavily used fixer that was under my sink. It's got a good coating of white silver deposited on the metal plate.
I'm kinda curious what the value might be once the device is full. That's got to be a lot of silver.
