    Ancient or not, putting a boulder on-top of something is an ancient as it gets. It should do the job well, regardless of it's age.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Darkroom in my new to me house.

    Well, here are some photos of the darkroom in my new home. It's not pretty and I still have some light leaks to take care of but it is functional and a little bigger than my old darkroom! Sorry for the phone pics! This album also has my old darkroom pics in it.

    Dear Lori,

    You optimized your space nicely. It looks like it is very pleasant to work in.

    Hi all, my first post in this particular thread...

    just upgraded my Omega D-II from its old condenser head to a super chromega d-ii dichro. I didn't get the extensions for the lift rods with the head, so a trip to the hardware store for some 3/8" steel rods and some creative use of pvc piping as a collar made it good as new! Also regreased all the moving parts and gave everything a once over, everything is nice and smooth again. It's up to par with the enlargers at my university now, but seeing as those are five hours away due to christmas break, my home darkroom is now a formidable compound of mass production.

    See my work at my website CHRISTOPHER LANGE PHOTOGRAPHY

    or my snaps at my blog MINIMUM DENSITY

    very small darkroom in Japan

    I took a quick photo of mine yesterday while at work. Being in an apartment in Japan, space is very limited for me, so I've set it up in my shower room. I'm 177cm tall and can easily touch both walls with my arms outstretched.

    The enlarger is an LPL 3301D which is 35mm only. I print mostly "kabine" size (12×16.5cm - 50 sheets for $18) - the box is on top of the enlarger head. I use an old darkbag for test strips in my pocket to save space.

    I used the local $1 heavily: the trays were all $1 each. In addition, I bought yarn, clips and hooks for $1 each. The yarn is strung between two hooks on the wall and test strips & finished prints are hung up there to dry.

    I use one black out curtain against the back wall. It was LPL and cost about $5. Turning the lights out in the hallway outside means no curtain on the back door is necessary.

    The good thing about it doubling as my shower, is that clean up afterward is very easy - just hose it all down Setup/clean-up takes about 10 minutes.

    I'd like to very much to thank the helpful folks on APUG for answering my (numerous) questions before and after setup - without your help this probably wouldn't have left the ground. Most people around me were skeptical that I could do it beforehand, and are still amazed now that it's up and working

    I've taken a liking to using plastic graduated pipettes for measuring and dispensing chemicals. While they are disposable, I didn't want to toss them with chemicals on them, so I was rinsing them, and if I'm rinsing them anyways, I might as well use them again. I suspect they were intended to be disposable so as to be biologically sterile. I use them for putting a drop of photoflo into the final wash, dispensing parts A & B of PMK developer, cyanotype A & B, gel bleach for fuji instant color negatives, etc...

    I built a stand for them out of scrap pine and schedule 40 conduit. I have some pipettes ready for new purposes, and others in labeled holes for their dedicated purposes. While they are theoretically clean, I don't want to cause any potential cross contamination, so I figure one pipette for each purpose.

    Photo attached of my darkroom which is in the 'long' spare bedroom. It is a very narrow room, so it restricts its use -so I have managed to blag it as a darkroom/guest bedroom.
