    I have a PF 8x10 Slosher and use it for all my 8x10 neg developing. It works fine - and I use it for both minimum agitation and semi-stand development procedures.

    The Slosher is a developing tray insert that separates sheet film for tray development. The Slosher tray is divided into four compartments which keeps the film sheets separated. The Acrylic plastic compartments have flow-through holes so the solutions can circulate freely. The Slosher can be used for normal or compensating development including Pyro. Mine is made of 1/8 inch red Acrylic plastic.

    So, there are no edge retainers of any kind on the PF slosher? If not, any problems with the sheets floating out of their respective cubby holes?

    Here is the Phil Bard design for a film processing panel. He does not use solid dividers. The film clips under nylon screw heads. This may provide more uniform development since there are no panels to create turbulence.

    Ralph,

    That's exactly what I was concerned about, I just did not put it in the right words. I assume that as long as you don't overfill the holding tray, the film cannot change 'cubby holes'?

    Thanks Tom and Jim for your descriptions. I am going to order one as soon as the Christmas post dies down.

    Regards

    Barry

    No edge retainers of any kind!

    No problems at all with film sheets floating out of their respective cubby holes.

    All processing steps - including washing - can be performed in the slosher. This minimizes film handling and associated probability of handling induced damage.

    Do you move the slosher from tray to tray or do you need 3 or 4 sloshers?

    Thanks,

    You move the slosher from tray to tray. Thus, only one slosher is used and film handling is minimized.

    BTW, I have a total of 3 sloshers; a 4x5, a 5x7 and an 8x10. My 4x5 slosher and 5x7 slosher were made by Summitek. Summitek does not make an 8x10 slosher, hence my PF 8x10 slosher. Summitek calls these devices cradles. The Summitek Cradles sell for substantially less than the PF Slosher and are very well made.
