    Great footswitch for enlarger

    Just bought one of these for my enlarger. Set my Gralab timer at 60min and use it to count down the needed time with this footswitch. Only 10$ too. Great buy.

    Good deal and it'd be great to use for the white light switch as well. May have to order a couple for my darkroom. A newspaper I interned at years ago used something similar in their darkrooms although it worked pushed up or down. I would skip the timer and just get a metronome, which is what the paper used as well. Couldn't have your music blaring but made you more aware of your burning and dodging times.

    Great idea, but it looks to me that the "power maintained" footswitch linked to at the bottom of that page would work better.

    It is $3.00 more though.
