    My piggie warmer...

    No, not my new socks.

    We just had 37 cm of new snow dump on us 2 days ago and it's snowing again. It's minus 15 C outside and in our old un-insulated house it's colder than a rat snake's fart in the basement.

    My piglet warmer keeps my paper developer at a cozy 21 C.

    I bought it from Farmtek last spring:

    Be careful that the ice crystals in your wash water don't scratch your prints.

    Haven't seen this much white stuff for many years and it isn't winter yet.

    Why are there no speaker jacks on a stereo camera?

    I was just about to go searching for that thread. Thanks for the link! My stainless sink chills everything, even if the air is warm.

    Thanks to Murray, I have been this pig warmer since a week after the thread started. It has never missed holding temperature where I want it. My next door neighbor just bought one for his darkroom...EC

    Yes, I got the info from Murray's thread about a year ago; a great idea. Mine's about 17" x 17", just for the dev tray. I should buy one of those 27" x 60 inch-ers to stand on while I work.

    Get a bigger tray for your developer, warm that and sit it to. Good for prints, good for hemaroids.

    Tmike,

    I would be much interested in the 17x17 one that you mention---where did you get? I did not see that one on the link provided above.

    Thanks.

    ...big piggie warmer

    I was processing some 20x24 film the other day and my darkroom was cold....I think I need TWO of the 27"x60" ones to keep all my 20x24 trays warm!
