    I think it is a fine unit. I own an Amergraph ULF=28 which has the same physcical characteristics as the V28 but instead of the metal halide lamp uses a continuous wave Xenon bulb. It is the cat's meow for printing with alternative processes.

    Sandy if I ever wear out this NuArc 26-1K, that is the unit I will buy. That's if I ever live long enough to wear it out. The restrike of the xenon bulb makes it a very nice unit. If you price an Edwards Eng. box of comparable size with a vacuum frame, then the ULF-28 is a pretty good deal

    Hi Sandy

    An interesting and well written review, sounds like a really good unit. Just out of interest do you know what the fall-off is like on the units that use metal halide bulbs such as Nuarc's. The reason i ask is that i have a parker platemaker/exposure unit at the moment which has two 300W mercury bulbs and i have problems with fall off at the corners.

    thanks

    I doubt that fall-off with different units is consistent as there are different mechanisms used to even out the light, and some units don't even try to even it out. Some NuArc units I have seen had a piece of glass under the bulb that was patterned to even out the light, others have plain glass.

    At one time I owned a NuArc 26-1k and the fall-off at the far corners was about 1.5 stops as I recall.

    Hi Dave,

    I just won this NuArc 26-1k on ebay this morning. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=270305295785

    It was re-listed after not selling the other week! I just need to get hold of some palladium printing materials and I'm ready to go.

    The diffusion dot pattern on the glass directly under the bulb that Sandy is referring to is a rubber type material just applied to the glass. What ever you do, do not wipe them with anything as they will wipe right off.

    Monty,

    I did not catch that look of Dinesh. Still trying to get over Sean and Valerie's reaction when they saw Brian's painted toenails.

    Painting toenails does not appear to be common practice for men in northeast Ontario.
