    4x5 slosher tray

    Can anyone show me what a slosher tray looks like? I keep hearing about them but I can't seem to find a photo referance. I'm thinking of using this technique if I can figure out how to make one my self.

    Sloshers work very well indeed. I have a 4x5, and a 5x7 Summitek Cradle:

    I also have a 8x10 Photographers Formulary slosher.

    Do an APUG search on slosher.

    I also have a 4x5 summitek cradle (picked mine up 2nd hand, but I've never seen another for sale used--that should tell you something!) which I use for 4x5 and 3x4 negatives. They work wonderfully.

    I just made a slosher out of an old Kodak 2x2 hanger

    I've been doing alot of 4x5 work these past few weeks.

    Although I have no problem tray developing, I'm getting tired of being knuckle deep in chemistry.

    I'm been wanting to build a slosher for a good long while and I even had the plexiglass to do it.

    I was just about to dive into a build when I notice the 14 or so 2x2 hangers I had on hand. I have neither the space not the tanks to use them as designed so I have sacrificed one (shutter) to slosherdom.

    All i did was hack-saw off the hanger section; de-burr the edges; and then drill a while in the center for a handle (a metal post, in my case).

    It fits perfectly in my Paterson 8x10 trays.

    I'll do some souping with it this week to determine how evenly developing proceeds.

    Here's some pics if you are interested:

    I like the idea of Phil Bard's processing panel. It's cheap and looks to be as effective as any of the other solutions available. If you're into DIY, this is a simple one to make.

    My home made slosher tray/basket

    Here's my slosher tray(basket) that I made for 4 x 5 negs. Perforated plastic sheet from the Craft department at Walmart and hot melt glue. The sheets (about 15" x 20") were about $5 for a package of 5. The sheets easily cut with scissors. Slosher basket is sized to fit into 11 x 14 trays. So far, it has worked great.
