    The one thing I CANT find at goodwill and its bugging me is a slide projector. I see Kodak carousels by the rack full for a buck but no projector... I have been checking antique shops and no luck either.

    BTW zsas, good view on the rust spots. I just may leave it the way it is for character.
    I found a Carousel Projector at a church yard sale for $2.00 took it home and it works even had a good lamp.

    Just so you know: old acetic acid stop bath makes a great rust remover/converter.

    Speaking of my own experience, beware of actually using a Graylab on your enlarger. I have 2. One I got brand new in 1975 or so. Experiment and be sure that the enlarger brightness does not flicker in brightness as the timer runs. Both of mine do, even after a thorough interior cleaning and adjusting. The flickering is very destructive to print exposure accuracy. Now I use them strictly as chemical timers and such. I do not trust a Graylab on an enlarger at all. In 59 minutes time measured against a watch, they're not even particularly accurate and can be off by 2-3 minutes by the time the hour is up. But I'm talking about the only 2 I have to lend testament by. Nice find though. They're still handy.

    Thanks for the tip Tom. I intend to use my gralab as a chem timer. Up until now I have been using a timer app which is nice, but not preferred. I have a time-o-light gr-72 as my enlarger timer, which is as big as a timer I can fit on my printing/supply rack.
