    BTZS DIY tubes - need photos

    After searching all of the BTZS DIY tube threads, it seems everyone forgot that a picture is worth a thousand words. Lots of plans and descriptions, but no pics.

    Anyone care to post a few quick pics of their developing tube set ups? Thanks!

    Here you go, these are 57 tubes. The first set I made had end caps that where slight domed so I glued ring of PVC on the ends so that they would stand upright. Then I found caps that are flat so I made a second set. When you buy your pipe check the inside for smoothness, it varies with with different manufactures. I ended using Prime Conduit brand. I also chose PVC because it is heavier than ABS and spins better in the water bath. These are made with 2" pipe and fittings. Not sure if the 1 1/2" Genova caps (for 45)are flat or not.

    See http://grahampatterson.home.comcast....lfdevelop.html for the ones I made for 4x5 work. These are intended for inversion agitation, not rolling, but they are daylight processing.
    I feel, therefore I photograph.
