Tell me Dave, has your wife failed to notice the 22 cubic feet thingy you seem to cherish, and visit every night, calling it "my pressshhhius?" You need to be careful the next time she buys ice cream!

Now if I could just figure out a way of convincing my wife that a refrigerated pottery film storage facility was just perfect for her, I might be able to get away with it!
Does anybody have a good argument to convince my wife that a Beseler 67C enlarger makes a fine decorative addition to any hallway?
I generally like to have a good 20 rolls of my favorite film on hand and I 'collect' various others on Ebay/forums/shops at good prices or sometimes even free. Almost all expired stuff, though...I keep very little unexpired film right now. I'm not doing anything for pay and I like the extra grain that the expired stuff gives me sometimes...though the 3 year old TMX that I have is still relatively low grain.
Isn't that one of those "retro" quartz halogens from Ikea???

My stocking is being controlled by suppliers that don't have an even inventory control and when the product is in it's impossible to stock up because the supplier limits the amount available. Then it's a wait of a year for another chance to acquire a stock. Times are indeed bad when it comes to acquiring a stock when you want a particular product.
I can't say I blame anyone for stocking up when possible, it's the only way to be prepared for work.
Where did all of that AZO paper go that Kodak reportedly produced but disappeared? It's that kind of practice that leads to hoarding; or may be a direct result of hoarding.
out of stock
will be in soon
discontinuing at the end of the year
Currently I have a walk in freezer I rented in a warehouse that has Agfa, Kodak, Ilford, Fuji, Adox, Orwo, H&W; 35mm, 120, 220, all sheet sizes including odd dimensions just incase I decide to do say 3" x 27" pana.
I have hundreds of thousands of rolls and sheets in both color and b&w.
I have the same amount in paper including all the sizes, grades and surfaces.
In a separate warehouse I have chemicals from all of the manufactures; every formula that was ever make is in large quantity. And Pigs can fly and I live on a tropical island...
Oh my God I've hijacked my own post!!!!!!!!!
mmm what a big freezers you all have, i've got 15rolls of sensia 100 , some tmax 400 and 5 rolls of 120 hp5+. sometime;s I buy more but for now this is it. I don't have the money and freezerspace to stock large quantities of film maybe later I will begin my own warehouse.
About 200 sheets of 4x5 in TriX in the freezer. Those expired in 2000 but are perfectly usable.
FP4 and HP5 in 4x5 and 13x18 are in the fridge.
I usualy only keep 6-8 rolls (120) and two or three boxes of 4x5 on hand, which is enough to keep me going for a reasonable amount of time.
I have about 4000 sheets of 4x5 B&W negative and chrome, 200 sheets of 8x10 and 250 sheets of 5x7. I have a film fridge/freezer too. Quote "Yikes!!"...EC
