    Free glutens? Where do you get them? I think I need some for my oak based Paleo Sabretooth developer. I figured out that sawdust grain will be too small and wood chips too big, so I ordered a bag of 3/8 " oak hole plugs. I had to buy 100,000 of them to get the best price, so I took all the food and film out of my freezer. I figure if I leave the film on top of the boiler, it will lower the speed enough to use all my lenses at once, thereby increasing the brokeh of my bank account.

    now you see this 11x14 negative ... into the heat box
    and out comes a 16mm frame ....
    Ok, semi-serious interjection into this thread (which is one of the most amusing I've seen in awhile).
    I'd swear I've seen shrinkydinks at Walmart or Hobby Lobby (and all you dirty minded folk, get out of that gutter). That might be a good direction to go for this "project."

    The shrinkydink we have around here is called boat wrap. It comes in rolls and when unrolled is 12' wide and as long as you want it. Perfect for ultra ultra large format, if you have an aircraft hangar to coat in. And if you can get coating to stick when you use the propane torch to shrink it. This is where the glutens come in. Once I have used the gluten Paleo Sabretooth developer to shrink the 12x10 foot wrap to 24x20", I plan to use a UV printing box upside doen with a piece of opal glass to hold the negative, put my paper in the negative holder and go analog from 20x24" to 20x24mm. The problem is getting the grain to show up that small.

    How do you keep the emulsion from crumbling as it shrinks?
