    Paper safes

    Could someone please post the brand names of a couple of paper safes to make it easier for me to locate info about them. Also if there is anything in the way of bad design I should avoid. Many thanks.

    I have got a Restem paper safe. Good design.
    Digital is best taken with a grain of silver.

    Lol. Would you believe Shakespeare's "Othello" contains restem+paper+safe.

    I think Patterson makes/made them.

    Brandess/Kalt, too. I think their site is bka.com

    Just a quick aside - in Tim Rudman's darkroom book he includes instructions for making (amongst other things) light-tight paper drawer. It doesn't look like rocket science and might be an alternative worth considering...

    FrankB,

    You beat me to it.

    I've decomissioned my previous darkroom and it'll take (probably) a few months to build the next one, so I'm darkroomless right now. The new darkroom will have one or more papersafe drawers. It seems way more practical if you can afford the space.

    I found what look like good plans for building one here:
    http://www.darkroomsource.net/papersafe.shtml

    Somewhere, the now defunct Pure Silver archives, I fear, I ran across a PDF someone made from a hand-drawn plan from John Sexton for much the same thing, but I can't find it just now.

    I used your basic top opening papersafe box for the most recent darkroom, and when counter space is at a premium, it can be a bit of a PITA. I'm looking forward to using (a) drawer(s) instead.

    Frank,

    I´m in the process of building two of these with a friend of mine, following the Rudman design. Not that difficult and quite affordable at some 15EUR per safe.

    There is another "public domain"-design out there at darkroomagic.com, Ralph Lambrecht´s website. He put a pdf with a sketch made by John Sexton in the download section.

    Carol,

    somewhere I got a stack of old darkroom magazines, in one of these is a listing of 10 or 20 different designs and brands. I´ll dig them out tomorrow and post that listing.
    Tschüss,
    Roman
