    should be ok

    I seem to recall Ilford stating that MGIV won't fog detectibly if you use a standard red safelight provided it's 15 watts, at least 1 metre away,and you expose the paper to the safelight for less than 4 minutes before developing.
    I've used MGIV with a red safelight for over 3 years now,and I've never had any fogging.

    I just started printing after about 15 months of film shooting
    I would have waited even longer if it weren't for the paper sitting in the fridge tempting me

    So
    I took a 25 watt and spray painted it red and then misted black and red some more
    It's good for at the very least 5 minutes -at about 3 feet away- which is all I've tested it for

    The little red filter that came with the enlarger fogs paper easily no matter if under lens/in drawer/with enlarger pushed up to top of column


    This is only with Ilford Multi so..

    "Safe"safelight

    Never assume that you do not have safelight fogging. Always test. I printed for 20 years with out fog, or so I though. 2002 Sexton workshop, John spotted fog in my prints. I tested the correct way and now my prints really sparkle. Just to be safe, when I'm close to the final print, I cut off the safelight and do the print in total darkness.

    The proper proceedure is presented in Kodak Publication K-4 Cat 8480733, "How safe is your safelight?"

    I can send a copy to any one who wants one by e-mail

    Gene,
    I remember you from the "Fine Tuning" workshop a couple of year's ago. Have you ever thought about suscribing to APUG and posting some of your photos so that we can some examples?

    I put bare-bulb sockets over each of my benches when I built the darkroom (darkroom construction thread), and have red wide-angle LED bulbs from superbrightleds.com in each. No fogging within the time frame I've tested, which is 5 minutes or less with Ilford MGIV RC and FB.

    The Kodak K-4 publication is still available online at the Kodak website:

    http://www.kodak.com/global/en/consu...Safelite.shtml

    I have yet to find a quicker or more definitive procedure than what was long ago outlined in this simple publication.

    Jerry,

    Glad to hear from you. I think I remember you.

    I've been following John's Advice to Exhibit-Exhibit-exhibit. Worked pretty well, I have two galleries currently selling my work. As to the web, I have started work on a new web site. It will take me a while to get it up. I've been honored locally by being asked to give a lecture series on my work next spring. So I'm working on a new web site to get both jobs done. Last year, I spent a couple of months, reviewing and scanning my total collection. I now have enough material to exhibit for the next 20 years

    My goal, finally reached this year, is to have 3 exhibits within a 12 month period. Hope to keep it up. I have gone partically !#% D____l. Purchased a 24inch Pro HP printer in July. Still doing serious image capture with film!

    I've started a small group here in Raleigh of master-level photographers. Currently have 7 members. Everyone in the group was juried in by a well know photographer and educator in this area. Turned down about another 15 people. I gave up on the 14 camera clubs currently active in the area. Started my own with HIGH entrance requirements. No shleippers here!

    The group has about 215+ years of experience. I have high hopes to move photography in NC to a new level of appreication. We have gotten two exhibits here solely on name reconigition of the members. We have only been in existence for 2 months.

    I e-mailed K-4 to a couple of people.

    Another project I'm working on is to get gigabitfilm imported into the USA. See www.technicalpan.com. I have tested this film and it is as advertised!
