    Mine is here - autographed as requested!

    I'm going to start practicing picking up 69 pound weights with one hand, then get a job at EK, and then I can get my free ingot of silver!!!

    Recieved mine over the weekend but have only had about 1/2 hour to leaf through it. Even with that I stand in awe of the process involved. I almost feel bad now for all the film I have abused over the years. Almost

    " ...To reduce vibration each coating station is mounted on its own isolated concrete pedestal secured in bedrock 75 feet below ground level..."

    This kind of detail is really going to make it hard to scale a coater down to basement size -- anybody see my arm and a leg?

    Bob's story is pretty much similar to mine except at a much smaller scale being in research.

    The big production coater was prototyped in KRL in the form of J9 machine in B-59. See photos of the Park and look at B-59 there. The center of the top 2 floors was the J9 prototype production coater that used up to 11" wide paper or film. RC4 was in the basement across the front and RC1 was on the 6th floor across the front. The J4, J5, J6 and J8 machines were on the side facing away in the photo. SC4 was on the 1st floor diagonally across from my office on the side facing away from the photo.

    Paper manufacturing ran up the side of the Park behind KRL away from the camera and film mfg. ran up the side closest to the camera.

    You don't need the mounting pedestals if you are coating narrower widths or slower speeds and also we are much further away from Ridge Road and its heavy traffic.

    My copy arrived yesterday. Looks very promising, judging from the half hour I spent browsing it.

    The Ilford factory tour a few years ago was very, very interesting. This book might be a virtual tour of the Kodak factory and will be equally interesting, no doubt. (Although nothing beats actually being there.)

    I'm going to read it front to back and then back again to the front.

    My copy arrived down here yesterday too - I have skimmed through it and am now very much looking forwards to sitting down with a cup of tea and analysing it carefully...

    Marc!

    Mine arrived yesterday. I have quickly skimmed it, and it looks quite good. Very intersting shots of the packaging machinery, and work flow diagrams are good, as is the layer coating structure explanations. Understandably there are limited shots of the coating machines, but good diagrams. A longer read will happen in the future.
    my real name, imagine that.
