    Some old Kodak general information on the K-Lab.

    www.kodak.com/global/en/consumer/products/klabs/index.shtml

    I just don't understand why it was necessary to install the K-Lab in a room draped in blue velvet.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    In more chauvinistic days there would have also been a glamorous model mixing the solutions, just to prove how simple and easy the process was!!

    Remember, this is the small version of the machinery.

    Right. I guess the big machine required a lot more velvet!

    Not something you could put in the back of a pick-up truck and haul home to your garage

    From the late 80's through the mid 90s, my father worked as a service rep for a micrographics film processor manufacturer (not Kodak). One of their accounts closed an office, and the service techs were called out to remove the leased (and very expensive) equipment from the premises. These machines were perhaps several years old at the time. So, they rented a dumpster and pushed, heaved, and threw all the equipment into it, to be sold as scrap. I imagine the Kodachrome processors met this fate, and that the same fate awaits most minilab equipment still in use now.
