    Enlarger Timer

    Can someone recommend an enlarger timer to use with my Leitz Valoy II enlarger. I live in the UK so any models that are available in the UK. Also what should I look out for in a timer, are some features more desirable than others?

    Kind regards

    You are gonna a lot of replies, you know. My recommendation for printing, because I use one and it is fantastic IMHO.

    Gralab 300

    Plug in the enlarger and the printing safelight. One switch changes from enlarger bulb to safelight. If you turn the timer knob is changes from safelight to enlarger automatically. Large glow in the dark face for easy viewing and does not fog paper in my experience.

    For film processing I have four of those old red Kodak timers. And I'll buy more. My own little OCD thing.

    I think the RH designs timers will be out of my budget.

    If you can wait until the weekend, send me a PM - I've got a couple of basic timers going spare.

    Look for a Paterson or Kaiser timer then.

    Thanks for the advice. I'll have a look around. I'm a novice trying to piece together a basic/temporary darkroom hence the RH designs is a bit expensive for my needs at the moment.
