    This may be a stupid question, but....I'm planning on using a GraLab 300 timer mounted on the wall above my sink to time Development, Fixing, etc., and the thought just occured to me that the glow in the dark face and hands might pose a problem to the paper until it's "fixed". Should I avoid putting a timer like this so close, or is that type of glowing light not a problem? Thanks.

    I have used a GraLab300 at the end of the sink (up on the wall) for years and have never had a problem with the glow from the dial or hands on my paper.
    I do cover it up when I'm loading film though - just in case.

    I've never had a problem from mine even when developing film in trays.
