BTW, I was told by Osram or Phillips (I forgot) that those red LED festival lights are no longer manufactured. Sad really, I think they could be ideal.
Ralph, http://www.superbrightleds.com. These guys sell red LED safelights with US and euro fixtures. They're bright enough and I've tested red-only papers as safe with them. I use a single light, mounted 8ft up, bounced off the ceiling (about 12 ft high).

Ilford paper, on the other hand, is probably about the most lenient paper out there WRT to safelights.
