I took a workshop with magic about a month ago and saw the results of his slosher with stand development. I can confirm that his negatives looked good and even throughout. If I hadn't already made my own using the plans in JHannon's link I would likely have bought one from the Formulary. I made a few modifications to the design suggested. I used a thicker peice of plexiglass and tapped the holes for the screws, that did away with the need for the bottom nuts. The result being that a lot less developer is needed to cover the film. I also put a longer screw in the center of each of the short sides as handle to make it easier to remove the slosher. The plexi base I also made swiss cheese out of to alow the liquids to flow more freely on the underside of the film. I'm not sure this last change realy helped all that much, just what I did. With this setup I can do stand development as well as developing 4 sheets at a time using the same proceedure as paper development. (in total darkness of course)
