You couldn't buy 3 blades of grass off somebody's property in Connecticut for what you could have the whole kit and kaboodle for here.
    I'll even throw in a genuine Merry Tiller and a DR Mower. And I'll let you have a 12 gauge New England Firearms single-shot for the varmints.
    I'll take the photo gear and the RC planes.
    Sure I'll trade you for my 2 family house... It's still worth about $100,000 right now and just needs a little remodeling...

    Bad 8x10 paper negative shot on a dreary day of a beautiful Bob Timberlake 16 year old cabin. As for moving up north, I don't think so. Northerners move down here every day, but when is the last time you heard of it happening in reverse? You people freeze your keisters off up there.Click image for larger version.

    Wow, that could be from my collection. It instantly brought the smell back.
    If you call it a "prime lens" because it's a fixed-focal length (i.e. not a zoom lens), then as Inigo Montoya said so eloquently, "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

    I do not know about an industrial plant over here that was located on ground not owned by the company.

    (Recently in the context of chemical "parks" originating from coherent plants that may have changed though.)

    If Ilford moves (and I did not mean to imply that in my post in any way) it will be very costly in terms of time and money. Most of you do not realize this. It is similar to a chip production area. Moves cause defects.

    Well, Ilford/Harman are no fools, and the public documents indicate that they are backing the plans for redevelopment of the Mobberley site, which include a new factory for them. (The location is on a corner of the current site, already occupied by one of their buildings.) I'm sure that they will have done their homework on all of the implications.

    Don't forget that these are the guys who routinely coat film, paper, inkjet, etc., on one machine, which you have implied Kodak find difficult ?

    The UK ain't the US, and Ilford ain't Kodak (thankfully ) )

    No one was hurt and nothing important was lost. So all is well in my world despite, and I got some cool images at least.

    If the biggest problem with moving of coating machines is the resulting downtime of these machines, then what is the problem? It's not like they need these machines spinning 24/7 these days ...
    Trying to be the best of whatever I am, even if what I am is no good.

    Down time could be a year and the waste of testing after to ensure and correct issues and no emulsion problems, etc... It's costly... Storing the excess film before shut down to ensure a supply while down.. Etc

    Zowie! Sounds like I might have found a fellow history buff!
