    Cheap solution to DR problem

    You people are probably way ahead of me but I picked up one of these in a local Eckerd Drug Store to replace the old hard to read 10ml oral syringe that I used to measure small quantities of Rodinal. This has the coolest lttle system for getting the solution from the bottle into the syringe. Too nice a little $2.50US darkroom problem solver not to share. I must find a 20ml and 30ml that will worrk with it.

    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    Got me two of them little puppies. One marked chemicals and stored properly and the other marked baby and kept with his stuff. The baby section of your local mega mart is a great place to find darkroom supplies.

    Being a batchler and having no children. I have to wonder what you would do with a syringe and a baby?

    Nifty device. I'l admit that I'm still using the syringes I got back in the '60s, when Rodinal came with rubber stoppers, and you were expected to extract it that way.

    Very timely suggestion.

    I've been up all night with a lousy cough so I'm heading down to Eckerd's this morning for an assortment of medications. I'll have to check out this device.

    I just recently bought my first bottle of Rodinal in years. I haven't used it yet. I was astonished to discover it's now in a plastic bottle. And you're telling me it no longer has the rubber stopper!? What's become of tradition? :rolleyes:

    I dug around my darkroom supplies and found a couple of old veterinary syringes I used 30 years ago with Rodinal. This looks like a better method than those.

    The least costly but effective are syringes from a vetenary supply house.

    I found cheap syringes at my local Tractor Supply Company (TSC) in the animal care section. Sizes 3ml to 35ml. A couple of dollars for a 6 pack of the smaller sizes. They also have some needles if you have an old bottle of Rodinal or Neofin Blau, or need to reach further down into a bottle. Wish that would work with undiluted TEA stocks. Gluuuug.... Gluuuug....
