I'm really glad that I started with Ilford. I like a company that supports their users.

And I filled out the survey. I said Maybe on the "would I use someone else's darkroom" part. Seems to me a darkroom is like my reloading bench in that it is a very personal space. I wouldn't want some stranger in there moving my stuff around.[/QUOTE]

Very good comparison! Have somebody pour Winchester 231 pistol powder back into your Winchester 785 container for rifle powder. Your .30-06 will never be the same! Of course your body won't either.
I'd only let somebody I knew and trusted work alone in my darkroom since I have some very nice collectible cameras in there along with some fine enlarging lenses.
