The hand coating blades have been tested and calibrated. They will initially be available by the end of May through the Photographers Formulary. Other dealers will be added as we progress.
The 4" blade will retail for $275 and the 8" blade will retail for $550.
They are made of 308 stainless steel and are highly polished for insuring scratch free coatings. These blades are intended for making paper coatings, but can be used for film. The blades will come with a complete set of instructions on calibration and use.
All blades are double sided, so that each blade is really two blades. If one side becomes damaged, flip the blade over and recalibrate and you can continue coating.
Initial orders will be taken by the Formulary. Additional blades will be available at the workshop in June.
