    Congratulations McFortner! I've been doing it for years and still get a kick out of seeing the negs when they first come out of the tank.

    I found that the flow meter that I had installed downstream from my Fotopanel caused the anti-siphon valve to back up and spill water on the floor. Removed the anti-siphon value and replaced with a brass elbow. Problem fixed.

    I had forgotten in my old age that Pentax 6x7 mirrors hang when the battery dies. So I followed instructions and "fixed" 2 bodies. But i have 4 bodies, 3 with broken chains. I dissasembled all 4 and discovered that the chain and the loop that holds it are REALLY TEENY. Well I knew from chain hanging down into the lens mount that it was teeny, but the loop that holds it to the ring thingy is worse. I couldn't find chain as small as the original so I fantasized about salvaging the good chain. I tested that bdy and found, as I had suspected from previous results, that it really does underexpose frames intermittantly, so one chain is available. Body number 4 was tested too as I recently started shooting Plus X in it and got a very weird flaw on some of the negs. . I didn't get any "marks" , but I did get underexposure [2-3 -4 stops]- usually a full frame, sometimes one third to one half. I suppose the second curtain is catching on the first or otherwise moving too soon??????
    So I re-assembled the two bodies with chains still broken, but fixed so the end can't dangle and shot a test roll of plus X in each successfully. We'll see if merely putting the shims back restores alignment.
    I suppose that the cost of trying to get an intermittant shutter glitch repaired is more than getting yet another body. Anyone have that problem and get it fixed??

    Lucky me, I fixed my wife's Fix-Or-Replace-Daily by putting in a new brake lit switch ,the old one had a broken wire which if you can believe prevented the car from shifting out of park,and all so no brake lights. Cost 20.00 bucks,a honest dealer would have charged $150.00 and a dishonest one the price for a new transmission . Got the rest of the day to fart around in the darkroom. YEEEE HAAAA!!!!!

    Replaced a 2-lamp balast resister in my plate etcher...of course they only sell the new balast resisters, which required a little "rewiring" on my part...and I am not a very good electrician. It all worked well in the end.

    I'm slowly replacing the light seals in my old cameras. One Olympus Pen EES-2 and one Canonet 28 down and drying, another Canonet 28 is soaking the old seals off. And I developed a roll of Lucky SHD 100 36exp in Caffenol McF. Kind of a slow day with both kids here this weekend.
