Hanger it is . . . that's a good name for it. Thanks.

I'm only using 32oz of chemistry in the tray, so the chemistry is not very deep. The hanger loop is being used as a handle to move the plate through the chemistry. I move the plate up-and-down and side-to-side keeping the motion as random as possible. Nothing quick or abrupt, just slow smooth motions. Of course anyone that tries this hanger will need to experiment. Also, since the hanger's hooks should prevent the emulsion from touching the bottom of tray, that is, if the bottom of the tray "is" flat, I see no reason that stand development can't performed also. That's something I want to try.
I'm leaving it up to the community to determine if this thing is truly functional for their own purposes.
Stainless is definitely a good idea. But, before you make an investment I would suggest that you try plain old wire to make sure it works for you. You know how some of those homemade tools can go. They look great on paper, but once implemented the devil then appears. ;-)
