Film processing equipment

Anyone have any film processing kit they care to sell-on, eg 35mm development tank, changing bag, thermometer, measuring jugs, film clips (for hanging and drying), dark storage jars etc.
If so please let me know what you have and asking price.

Many thanks.

Re: Film processing equipment

When you get to printing, I've got a darkroom light and Patterson Critical Focus finder you're welcome to for nothing. Just a matter of getting it to you.

Very kind of you, Jim.
Unfortunately no darkroom here, and no potential either. The wife, aka the boss, has graciously agreed to film development, but converting the bathroom into a makeshift darkroom, or the spare bedroom is one step too far. Maybe one small step for man, one giant leap for womanhood.

Many, many years ago, I was in a similar situation. As I was in the RAF at the time - per ardua ad astra lit the light bulb... Replaced stars with stairs. I used the loft space.


Another thank-you to Jim.

Re: Film processing equipment

It is the concept of the darkroom that totally blanks out any possible interest in me using film.
Been there, seen it, smelt it - no thank you

I got rid of my darkroom gear years ago - apart from some developing dishes which are doing sterling work in the garden shed.

But using the Jobo drum system, the only dark you need is when using your enlarger and then transferring the paper to drum. After that you can turn your lights on and proceed. No dishes full of smelly chemicals, just mix the required amount in a small jug and pour it straight into the drum ... in daylight ... and develop your pictures, either colour or mono.

Re: Film processing equipment

I did Cibachrome prints using the rolling drum system, big issue is getting a room that can be blacked out that is close to a running water supply.

I had quite a range of flattened carboard boxes for blacking out the windows, tape for the gaps under the door etc etc

Did it for over 20 years - great experience and a good training to use digital methods.

I came very close to having a go at this back in the day: my flat had an internal bathroom that was reasonably spacious so the practical aspects wouldn’t have been too difficult.
Eventually however I decided against it not only because of the cost, but mainly because I’d taken against the IMHO oversaturated and contrasty Cibachrome results. At the time I was in to using Agfa CT18 colour slide film, known for subtle colours and tones and quite prominent grain, and I suspected the two wouldn’t live together well.

Re: Film processing equipment

Bought an OM-1n last year, Durst M370BW enlarger and darkroom gear this year I’m now getting back into black and white and loving it.
