    35ml would be a nice size to have. Great for pulling an ounce of FG-7.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    The big ones are either in a vet-supply store or in a place for people with renal problems, they have to use those big suckers (up to 50ml)

    I've been using a 10 ml plastic pipette. It works great for small amounts of PMK A & B to make 300 ml working solution. This one is configured so you fill it with a bulb and release the liquid till it measures 0. It is full then. By removing your finger tip you release a small stream until the level reachs the desired amount, 3 or 6 up to 10.

    I bought one. Looks to be very useful. I'll give it a run this weekend.

    You just need a wider (larger gauge) needle.

    The local supermarket/drugstore stocks 5ml and 10ml. Plus they've got little droppers in 1ml size that's marked in 1/4 ml. The digital thermometers are good for checking the accuracy of the faster darkroom one.

    Ask the pharmacist(sp) about the bigger syringes. They may ask you what you are using them for but I have not had a hard time getting the big ones after telling them what I want it for.

    That's the trick. TEA won't even think about starting up an 18 gauge needle, even heated a bit. The horse and cow needles at TSC (Tractor Supply Company) don't get over 16 guage. I'm looking around to see if there's a PSC nearby (Pachyderm Supply Company). Barring that, I was acquainted a few years back with someone who is now a vet for the large African animals at the Bronx Zoo. Maybe she can get me something.

    Until then, I decant TEA stock solution into a film can to draw it up into the syringe, which is a little wasteful, as I can't get it all to flow back into the storage bottle. I'll try one of the baby syringe bottle stopper/adapters. I've used them before, just not with TEA.

    I don't understand. Why would you be able to draw TEA into a needleless syringe from a film can but not using the stopper system? It would seem to be a perfect solution to the wastefulness of putting it into to the can before drawing it.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    The storage bottle I use for TEA is too narrow for the syringe body to enter, so I have to decant to a film canister for a wider mouth. As I said, I haven't tried the baby syringe stopper on the TEA storage bottle yet. I plan to.
