    A paper safe is a box with a light trap that I place paper sheets into for a darkroom session. I open the light trap and remove a sheet. I can store up to 4 different types up to 11x14, or I can dry my coatings in it.

    It sits next to my enlarger.

    Mine is totally unlike those in that it has 4 compartments instead of 1. But basically those are similar.

    Thanks Kirk.

    OK, thanks for explaining and Kirk for pointing to the B&H link. I have never seen these things before, so this is useful information. I didn't know boxes like these existed, might be handy to have one once, instead of having to close and open my boxes continuously during a printing session (as you probably do too, I check each print using daylight type lighting in my darkroom after each print has finished).

    I have a added a cross sectional sketch of the air outlet of the box, showing the hidden ventilator and construction of the light trap. For those interested, see:

    Has anyone used a dehydrator/jerky maker? If so, who might make the largest ones that might work for photographers? Bill Barber
