    I used to use the top rack in my old dishwasher to stand up my RC prints to dry. I've also used an old dish drainer for smaller batches. Now I use screens to dry prints on.

    I have wire rack made by Falcon for the purpose. It's ancient. I think it came with a crank through roller device for removing the surface water. A squeegee and a letter sorter from Staples would do the exact same job. If you are really pressed for time, a cheap hair dryer would dry them quicker but I would rather just hang them, drink a beer, and come back. Sometimes it takes two beers.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    $3000 is alot of money to dry prints. I'll do like you guys, air dry.

    I'm taking better care of my drum dryer too, it may buy me my retierment home some day. I bought that for $50, 30 years ago in mint condition and the seller thought he got over on me too... said it was a cheap one, needed a new plug.
