Thanks for the welcome, one and all. As for the rubber gloves - pass. I get severe asthma attacks in darkrooms, no matter how good the extractor fans. I'd need my own oxygen tank on my back - it just starts getting ridiculous. However, my 16-year old daughter is getting quite experienced at darkroom processing, so I'm trying to persuade her to do her old man's films. But that might end up being more expensive than sending them off to a pro - kids these days, eh?
