    Shameless Hijack --Warning-- Shameless Hijack

    Reinhold,

    As long as you are re-inventing things, how about resurrecting a decent 4x5 film washer along the lines of the now-defunct and really-hard-to-find-used Gravity Works film washer? Just a thought...

    Best and sorry for the hijack,

    Doremus

    Here is mine made from precut wood at the hardware store.

    To the next 1/2", how much space would each lens need?
    Some lenses project behind the lensboard, (rear caps included).
    Each of my medium format lenses occupy 2-1/2" wide bays.
    My 4x5 lenses occupy 3" bays each.
    The Lens Garage in the photo (post #3) is 15" inside.

    I'm back to the drawing board...

    I figure better to have a little more room than not enough. I can't see any of my lenses being longer than 3".

    Now, you could up the ante, put some liquid emulsion on the wood and print a few pics on it, this too, should be art...:-)

    That would be a waste of Reinhold's time when an even better 4x5 film washer is already available from Alistair Inglis:

    http://www.alistairinglis.com/film-washers/

    I say this as an owner of both Gravity Works and Inglis 4x5 washers.

    Nice Sal, spendy but the 10 sheet in-sink looks good.

    If I did not already have a Gravity Works 12 sheet, I might splurge for that one if it came down to it.

    Whew, for a minute I thought I'd have to drop everythind and start cutting acrylic.
    I've made lots of darkroom washers, tanks, and trays.
    But it takes time and that's in short supply.

    Alistair recently updated his Web site -- and prices too! Before, there wasn't too much difference between the in-sink and out-of-sink versions. All mine (4x5, 5x7, 6-1/2 x 8-1/2 and 8x10) are out-of-sink, but only cost roughly $75 - $100 more than the in-sink versions when purchased.

    If faced with the current prices, my approach would be similar to what I do for roll film washing. I use the Jobo Cascade washer attachment, which forces water into the tank's top cover center opening, while the tank is standing in one of these Paterson RC print washers

    with just the outlet hose connected and running into a drain. It would work identically with an Inglis in-sink washer sitting in the Paterson.

    If you build a Greg Davis type, beechwood would be nice. The critical thing being leave unfinished. Most all finishes give off fumes.

    I would use some king of loose cover like a curtain. Allow for air circulation, but keep off dust.

    Anyone do something in a sealable plastic box?
    I'm thinking sealable so I can put a desicant in the box and not worry about moisture getting into the box.
