    That book has been on my want list for a few years now. First time I think I've ever heard of an actual copy of it.

    Bill - how's it going? Did you get your analytical balance? My 3-place balance arrived today, I need to take the top off as it looks like the wieghts have gotten out of position during shipping.

    Interesting Kirk.

    I just got a "surplus" Kodak/Sartorius 10Kg 3 place scale for $100 at a scrap yard. It is in perfect condition and still has the Kodak ID tag. It is a monster with a top plate about 1 foot square and must weigh in at nearly 10 kg itself. It has a centering level on the top and I/O ports on the back so it can be computer driven. New, it must have cost a mint.

    Hi Kirk,
    Things came up, and I was not able to pick up the balance personaly. It was shiped to me yesterday. My sensitization dyes are still in the freezer. As soon as I get the balance and have made sure that it is properly calibrated, I will let the unoperned dyes come to ambient temperature befor I open them. Then I will weigh and ship to you and the other person who requested portions.
    I have been working on a "special" project about which I am not ready to go public. But soon you will read about it in some form.
    Cheers,
    Bill

    Wow - that sounds nice. I bet that did cost a lot when new.

    I pulled the top on my balance, and there was what looks like a box knife blade stuck to the magnetic dampener. But the mechanism is still out of alignment. Fortunately there is a shop in town that specializes on repairing analytical balances. I'll drop it off and see what they say. At least it was only $25.

    Ahh, the joys of ebay...

    Hi all,
    Ijust received my Answorth mechanical anylitical ballance. It looks clean and complete. Exept that some of the weights and other internal parts are "diconected". Fortunatly, the service who last calibrated it in 1983 is still in busines and only about 50 miles from here, in Burbank. I will take it in on Wednesday ,and hopefuly get it up and running.

    Sounds good - I've decided to try again at another used balance - this time a 4-place. If it's going in for service, I might as well get something that is really worth fixing. SO there's another $40 into an analytical balance...

    [QUOTE=Photo Engineer;675608]For film, glyoxal or chrome alum or both in a mixture, but for plates only chrome alum is sugged.

    Hi Ron,
    Is your recomendation for the use of only chrome alum for glass plates only because chrome alum can act as an adhesion promoter for glass? If that is the case I do not think that it will matter. Because I follow A very strict preparation for my glass,I never,ever have frilling, hardened or not.
    Could you offer a sugestion for concentration of chrome alum or glyoxal?
    Regards,
    Bill
