    I like them, and the cool animation you did. I just finished my own, very similar drying racks. What I've been doing thus far, is taking the top rack, flipping it over and laying over the prints that are face down on the lower rack. So far it seems to help minimize the curling.

    Thanks alot, Nige! Now I have another project...I was wondering what else I could cram into my darkroom. The space under my work table is one of the few unused areas left. Not for long though. Good idea, but how do I get the racks to "auto eject" like yours?

    Hey, did you sneak a peak at my darkroom? Those are identical to what I built! Big suprise - there's only so many ways to build drying racks . I see that you took the additional step of painting yours. You keener you. Mine I left unpainted.

    John: I use a small fan to circulate the air (slowly) over my prints. I've ever had a problem with curling. Strangely enough, when I did squeegee each side of the print, the print curled more than when I just squeegeed the emulsion side. So that's all I do now - it seems that enough water is removed from the fibre back when I do the front that they dry at about the same rate - they end up being quite flat. Flat, that is, for fibre....they still need to be flattened before mounting.
    Cheers!
