    My chosen criteria for washing is time, not changes in water or turbulence
    I've got one of these:

    and follow it's instructions for a half-hour soak in one tank of water, replacement, followed by another half-hour soak. Also, I only use FB paper. I haven't gotten around to using HCA yet... sure i will soon, once I initiate my bottle of selenium toner.

    I can't remember the model number but I use the Graylab timer that also has a metronome built into it. It gives me the best of both worlds. While I do still watch the timer, I've found that I feel something is missing unless I can also hear the metronome.

    I use only a metronome - if I can find it. My wife often borrows it for practicing (cornet), or I take it out myself for practicing (song).

    If I can't find it, I count. After 30 years of music I have no difficulties in counting at a steady 60 bpm...

    Apart from that, I use a wrist-watch - in daylight.

    I've tried (briefly) working with an enlarger timer, and couldn't get used to it at all.

    Edit. Try removing the dash in wrist-watch. Amusing :o

    On my enlarger, I use a a digital timer that dates back to the dawn of digital timers. It looks as if was constructed in someone's basement. It works fine but I find it's controls inconvenient to use and it has a weird footswtch plug. For burning and dodging I'd rather have tones than an LED countdown. If I'm concentrating on on the easle, I'm not looking at the timer. I'd like to get one of those Beselar Audible timers, they're all over Ebay but I haven't managed to snag one yet.

    For process I use a old Gralab Dial timer.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    For processing, a 10 buck talking count-down timer.

    I use an old laptop, with red film over the screen, a SSR driven via the parport switches the enlarger and some home brewed software (DOS based).

    If anyone is interested then pm me and I'll send you a copy and details of the interface. It could use a little refining but works OK.

    Cheers

    Heh, I have to put another shameless plug - I use Palm with FotoTimer software and a DIY relay to hook it up with enlarger - see my DIY projects for Palm in the Darkroom.

    Only downside is that it counts in full seconds. Good enough for me, though.
    The same software is used for both negative and positive work. Lets you "chain" processes, so you can prepare the whole shebang in advance (pre-wash, development, stop, fix, rinse, whatever) with adjustable pauses between processes. In short, once you start it, your hands are free.
    Quite a nifty program - and freeware, too!
