    Adox on the starting block?

    In a Facebook album Adox says production would start 'in a few weeks':

    I see 'POLYWARMTONE Emulsionskocher', it seems to be an emulsion machine for a paper like Forte's old paper.

    Film and paper must be dead, they build new factories
    The future belongs to the few of us still willing to get our hands smell like fixing bath.

    In fact, this is the original Polywarmtone emulsion production machine from the Forte factory: http://www.polywarmton.com/page5/page5.html

    Start of the production in a few weeks may be a little bit optimistic. In a few weeks, after the cleaning, technicians from Hungary will connect the control panel.

    After that, to say it in his own words "The adventure starts when we pour the first silver nitrate in...."

    I hope the adventure is successful soon, only one box left in my fridge
