    LOL! That thing is made in a stock bin thats had the flaps removed! I've made one myself for 16x20. You could probably cobble this up yourself pretty cheap with a little thought.

    It is not a true slot washer so all of the prints need to be washed at the same time. Without testing I don't know how well it really works. I agree that you can make a washer of out bins you can find at stores that carry office supplies.

    Brilliant

    Thank you for posting, I have an old bread bin (similar shape to the stock bin) and will use it to make my own :-)

    Mike didn't you post the link for the one made out of a laundry sink?

    Locally the sink used in that Ebay auction is about $18 Canadian. $15 US? Figure out some dividers. Get some plastic pipe or copper. Cut it to length. Use T and elbows to assemble the thing into a manifold. Solder it if you want but leaks won't matter. Use your hack saw to cut slits in the bottom of the pipe. You'll need a hose fitting at the inlet side. Drill a hole in the side of the sink high enough. Likely want to fit some sort of fitting to that to. Then figure out dividers.

    I bet $30 US give or take. Unlike the one on Ebay for $200 plus shipping.

    It'll be a batch washer.
