    Looks like something from a chemistry or biology lab. http://www.bellcoglass.com/product_d...roduct_id=5582
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    Maybe a good way to mix chems. How about a constant temp water bath, with or without agitation. There are a few possibilities.

    Yeah. Set oscillations to 0 and you've got a water bath.

    Good Morning, Denis,

    "automatic small tank agitator??

    That might be worth a try. Recently, there was a thread here in the Forum which discussed the idea of attaching a battery-powered vibrator to an old Yankee sheet film processing tank to achieve continuous agitation development. The Yankee tanks are otherwise notorious for uneven development (among other drawbacks), so it may have been a good idea. The device you have could work similarly if it has enough power to vibrate tank that's fairly heavy when filled with solution.

    it worked

    used it to develop my latest experiment
    pushed delta 400 to 3200 in small spiral tank for 15 minutes at 75f

    had water bath about 1" up on tank
    set speed to just below splashing out tank
    used gralab 300 to time, buzzer to announce done and watched tv
    came back later to finish processing
    negatives drying
    looks like there's something in almost every frame from early inspection

    portraits of tree's shadow on snow covered driveway should be interesting

    will later try normal processing in the shaker, and developing prints

    I'm a little bit disappointed. When you said "hot shaker" I thought you were referring to a dancer/stripper.
