    darkroom sink ventilation hood wanted

    I'm looking for a ventilation hood to fit behind a 6' darkroom sink. I'd like to find one in the vicinity of Kalamazoo, Michigan for a local pickup if possible. Or, you could drop it off.

    Hey Smieglitz, howze it going? I don't know if you remember me, but we corresponded many moons ago about teaching photography. I live in South Louisiana and sold you an old 8x10 view camera. Hope you still use it. I have a Calumet 4x5 outfit for sale with all the lenses and a large case. Do you have any idea about who might be interested? The last time I used APUG was 3 years ago. Hope you are getting along well and still teaching school.

    How about making one. I have seen several plans on-line although I don't have any links to post right now. I seem to recall one being made out of PVC pipe with a slot or holes and mounted fairly low to collect the fumes rather than higher up where you may still get a whiff.

    Hi Joe. Of course I remember you. Bromoilist extraordinaire. Hope you are doing well.

    I do have a friend looking for a Calumet 4x5 outfit so PM or email me and let me know what you have for sale. I'll pass the info along.

    I passed the 8x10 Universal onto a student who later became a photography instructor as well.

    Me? I'm still at it teaching wet chemical photography. If you are ever up this way give me a heads up.

    I have seen the eepjon.com page. It has a lot of good info. Unfortunately, my need for a vent hood has been put on hold until I find a different darkroom space.

    Joe

    Have you tried use Kitchen equipment stores, they usually have tons of used stainless sinks, trays and large venting systems that go for excellent prices.

    I can email you a jpeg of our venting system if you want , it is basically a very large tube running the whole length of the darkroom , in a L shape, the only holes are at the bottom of the tube , and this is then hooked up to a very powerful exhaust fan.
    works well for our enviournment , specifically when I am sepia toning and the whole room smells like the back end of a cow.

    I think any competent construction worker could put this together.

    Looks like a cheap shot at getting an advert here without paying for a subscription to me.

    Looks like he's a subscriber, am I missing something?
