    I've been on the look out for one for the last 2 years (anyone in Adelaide wanna sell one for under $1000?), but since one hasn't cropped up conveniently I've started making plans to build my own. Poor university students must compromise. It's a simple concept - PIC controllers, stepper motors and heating elements.
    All of the knowledge and parts for this sort of technology are freely available, but I have a long shopping list and a small budget so it isn't gonna be completed any time soon. Doesn't hurt to make plans though.
    The Analogue Laboratory, or 'so you built a darkroom in an old factory in the industrial zone'.
    Blog thing!.

    Worry less. Photograph more.

    In addition to my own work, I process B&W for a few local custom labs. I successfully used a CPP-2 for many years. Inevitably, the motor died on me. While it was being repaired I reverted to my Paterson System 4. For the labs the change was seamless; for me the change was quite dramatic. For my own work I noted increased sharpness and better tonal gradation in my negatives. Not sure why but, (unfortunately, because it's a pain in the you-know-what) there was a definite and quite dramatic improvement when I switched to manual.

    Bob - that is a disturbing observation that I will have to look into. Constant agitation is my first guess as to the differences.
