    im now thinking ill get some wallpaper troughs as im only doing 30x24. if i get a pipe i can wrap the paper round the outside of it (emulsion out) and rotate that in the tank with the chems in. how does that sound?

    bill - do you dilute your dev so you have more time in the chem o do you stick with standard dilutions?

    No, on the inside. See the attached picture. You unroll it inside of the cylinder as it enters the water while rotating the cylinder. It's easier to do than to describe. And once the print adheres to the cylinder, you just handle the cylinder and don't touch the print at all. In this picture I do not have any chemicals in the tray, but I hope you get the idea. The photo I use in the picture is rather small - only 20"x24". I also made a bigger cylinder for 30"x40", but have not used it yet. I don't see why it would not work. By the way, the tray that you see here i made by cutting two 16x20 PVC trays and gluing them together. It gives me space to process prints up to 30" wide. I also added a drain for easier draining of water or chemistry.

    im feeling a bit wary of trays - due to the size of the paper im worried about streaking/uneven development issues...
