My enlarger being such a basic one is literally a desk lamp inside a box with a condenser lens.

I can even pull the lamp holder out.

I'll take some pictures.

Stop bath chemicals.

When printing RC paper does the stop bath have to be a chemical, can water be used like you can when developing film?

Cheers.

Hello from somewhere near Liverpool

Howdy,
So while I'm seasoned photographer (yes I am old) I'm new to shooting film and developing. I've also just bought the kit for a darkroom which is scary but exciting.
