My floor is carpeted, and my enlarger is on a wooden table with a small footprint (about 30" square). To avoid indenting the carpet too much, I wanted to put down a piece of thick plexi (also about 30" square), and stand the table on it. My question is, will the plexi increase the amount of static or dust in the enlarger? Or will it be the same as if the table stands directly on the carpet.
I was really hoping to avoid having to buy some kind of anti-static chair mat for computers or whatever. It's expensive and I'd have to cut it down, and those mats usually have those annoying spikes on the underside. I don't even know where I'd get that stuff.
