    Darkroom Move Almost Complete...

    Well, since I had an extended weekend off work I decided to move my Darkroom from the laundry room to it's very own room in the basement.

    I've had a 6' Delta ABS Sink sitting around for several months and even got a stand built for it

    The fun will begin tomorrow, that's when I'm going to run the plumbing to hook up the sink. :o

    Wish me luck!

    I like your arrangement at the enlarger, I may try to emulate it. The sink is another story. That thing will limit you to maybe 11x14 prints at best. I had one for a while and couldn't fit my trays into it very well. I wound up getting an old morgue table from a supplier my wife knows and redoing the plumbing in it. It has a sink on one end with a faucet and I mounted four more spigots in the holes next to the sink for my film washers and print washers.
    I have the Wing Lynch water control too, they are great!

    WOW! That looks great. I'm going to crack open a beer and go cry in my darkroom now.

    In my "darkroom", the only water is in the next room. All my film and print washing is done around a dainty little bathroom sink. You have no idea how jealous I am of all you guys with big, luxurious processing sinks (and a place to put it). Washing is the biggest chore of my darkroom evening.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    Your darkroom is just too darned neat! I mean that both ways. Touse it up a bit so I don't feel so guilty.

    HAHA... You didn't see it before I moved everything

    Gary, The sink is just temporary. I've been looking for a reasonably priced 8' stainless steel sink that is within driving distance. So far no luck, that's why I ordered the Delta for now.

    Something else I need to install tomorrow too. I picked up a portable Husky air compressor (and water trap to fit on the line) today at Home Depot.

    http://www.homedepot.com/cmc_upload/...s/163858_4.jpg

    I got tired of buying all those cans of compressed air to dust off negatives. I figure that I can put it under the workbench and run the air hose up the back and through the pegboard. With the small amount of air used to dust off the negatives I won't need to run it very often, just long enough to charge up the tank.

    Should pay for it's self quickly.

    Thanks for the nice comments!

    Jim

    Flotsam,
    I can feel your pain

    I actually have a fiberglass darkroom sink, but can't hook it up to the water source across the hall. I just walk the prints into the bathroom to wash them.

    So can I - my nearest water is one floor down. But we have cats, so everything is dried another floor down where the cats have no access.

    So I carry water up one set of stairs for processing, prints or films (in water) down again for intermediate wash, then down a very narrow stair for final wash and drying.

    And that's about all the exercise I get these days - at least when it's raining.
