    John,

    Try the Park Seed Co for developing trays. They have seed starter trays that are about 12 x 22 and aren't very expensive either.

    Go with the plastic trays. I had tanks made from restaurant stainless a long time ago. I mixed up a batch of Dupont fixer and the next morning there was a crust of rust all around the tank just above the liquid level. Type 316 stainless AFAIK is the only grade safe for photographic chemistry. They are also very expensive.

    Why are there no speaker jacks on a stereo camera?

    I'll second the seed starter trays, but they're pretty flimsy.
    Double them up so you can move them around or they may go "crackers" on you.

    Heavy duty versions of the same thing are available here:

    The only squawk I have with seed trays is that they're a bit too small for my printing style
    (8x20 contacts on 10x24 paper).

    Reinhold,

    I'm not sure which trays you are referring to from Park Seed Company. Mine are every bid as rigid as normal photographic trays and work perfectly for me with my 8 x 20 negs. The ones I got were the light green ones, not the black ones.

    For contact printing onto 12 x 24 paper with Pt/Pd, I use plaster/grout mixing trays from home depot for about $6 a piece.

    I agree! The seed trays are the best. I got 12 of them to have some extras. Can't go wrong.

    OK, I added pictures of my 8x20 to the main camera building thread.

    John, congrats on the 8x20! I love the format and like my 11x14 I find with 8x20 I become much more selective with my images.
