WOW, now we have Photo Researcher and Photo Engineer at APUG! Maybe I should change my nickname to Photo Developer!
Welcome!!! If you happen to have any spare time, post some examples of your work! We have seen pictures of the coating machine, but I bet there is much interest in emulsion making too.
I can't wait to see more of this....and PE's DVD / book combo.
Christmas is coming.
Dear Photo Researcher,
Welcome to APUG! We are all very impressed by your coating machine and results. I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say that we would like to learn as much as possible about your experiments.
Personally I'm very keen to learn about your emulsion making techniques. I'd love to hear your recommendations and would be VERY keen to see some photos of your emulsion making gear.
Keep up the excellent work. It is really inspiring what you have achieved with a non-commercial setup.
This is sweet.....very interesting. Definitely complicated, but neat nonetheless.
Welcome photo researcher! I remember being a lot younger when I first saw those photos and thinking, "Death of film? Not for him, He's nuts!" It probably contributed quite a bit to my collecting and storing of analog equipment.

I wonder what is going on........
On 10-15-10 photo researcher had this to say;
Yes indeed Chris,I am researching the making of a color reversal film of the Kodachrome process type. This has actually been a project since I built the coating machine some years ago and has occupied most all of my time since!
Although I have worked in photo technology for fifty years,actually putting together a full color multi layer material is daunting.
Results so far are quite exciting but when it comes to combining all the elements
I know it will be tough.
Because of my past employment I have acquired a large number of the chemicals needed so I am lucky in this respect.
Soon I will start to communicate some of my work but I hope those interested will be patient, as sitting in front of a computer is not one of my favorite pastimes.
I'll reach out to him again and see if there is any new progress. I've offered to act as his "communications liason", but never heard anything back. It seems that his last statement is not an understatement!

Excerpt from the speech "Citizenship In A Republic", delivered at the Sorbonne, in Paris, France on April 23, 1910:
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
-- President Theodore Roosevelt
"Some photographers are the poets of purple mountains' majesty. Some are the poets of the placid suburbs. Weegee is the poet of small-timers who died face down on a city pavement at 3 a.m. in a pool of their own blood."

Chris, I am very sorry to say that
I feel I must publicly admonish you for posting that communication.
He obviously wants privacy.
He wrote to you, most likely with the idea you would respect an implied understanding of "just between you and me".
I do not think you should have posted that and
I think it should be removed.
(Did he gave you permission to post that material? ...
If so, I apologize big time!)
