    Cesco-Lite 14x17" Darkroom trays

    Is there somebody who have this tray and knows the exact internal dimension of it? Will it fit 14x17" paper or film? BH who sells it say no, but they are not sure and they could not offer to measure it for me either. I am planning to develop 7x17" film in this tray, but wont dear to buy it before I know if the size is good enough.

    I got an answer on LF forum:

    ----
    My trays have radiused bottom corners
    The flat bottom size (before the radius begins) is 15 x 18"
    Halfway up into the radius, the size is 15.5 x 18.5"
    At the top of the radius (1/2" off of the bottom) the size is 16x19"
    The sides taper out to 16.5 x 19.5" at the rim.

    They are top-notch quality, I love them when printing batches of 11x14's...

    I agree that they are great trays but for sure I wouldn't process 7"X17" film in them.
    I like to have plenty of room for the film, at least 2" all around, so when I flip them they don't get cramped.
    Just my 2cents

    Dear StigHagen,

    I find Cesco trays to be too tight when used with the "rated" paper. That is, I find 11x14 paper to be a poor fit. I prefer Paterson trays. Much more room and much easier to access prints with tongs and pouring out chemicals.
