    Buy or build the biggest sink you can fit in your darkroom. You'll be so glad you did.

    The axiom I live by – my process sink is almost 20 feet long, not to mention the wash sink.

    I didn't realize there was so much testosterone in darkroom work!

    By the way. I pimped my Jobo. It now has a 2-hp motor on it. I get my film developed in seconds! After processing, switch it into turbo-mode and it dries the film at 4,000 rpm.

    Concerning the electrical wiring, consider having one switch that will turn on and off EVERYTHING plugged into every outlet. I have this and I really like it.
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    Ralph- you da man!
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I put a shelf behind my Omega D2V too close. The crank handle hits it as I raise the enlarger head.

    Now the shelf has a big notch in it; looks ugly, works fine.
    Photography, the word itself, invented and defined by its author Sir John.F.W.Herschel, 14 March 1839 at the Royal Society, Somerset House, London. Quote "...Photography or the application of the Chemical rays of light to the purpose of pictorial representation,..". unquote.

    Electrical: Put white light switches six feet from the floor; safe light switches 3 feet from the floor. Use GE 24v switches to control 120V solenoids and to control 120 volt lights. The advantage is you can have many switch locations (i.e. 5+) to control the lights and lessens chance of shock. Have plenty of incandescent lights. NO FLORESCENT LIGHTS! They can glow.

    Plumbing: Hot, cold, and filtered/tempered water faucets. Two sinks. One for tray processing and a slop sink for mixing and washing.

    Wall and ceiling color: WHITE to bounce safelight illumination around.

    Counters: separate wet and dry areas.


    Ventilation: Fresh air supply and exhaust (over the sink) with a remotely located low speed fan so you don't hear it in the darkroom.

    I have all this in a 6 x 12 space: 6 foot sink, 2 foot sink, and two separate 6 foot dry counters. One with a drop easel.
