Default Hello

Hi,

I have been given a darkroom (re-purposed cupboard under the stairs) for my birthday. Haven't printed black and white for 30 years!

Welcome back to the dark side Alex

In such a small space, I would suggest using low/no-odour stop and fixer - especially in a mixed space such as the hallway!

Have fun, Bob.

Welcome Alex. It may be a bit cramped under the stairs but I am sure you'll find the magic of printing is still as good as ever it was

Hi Alex and welcome to Fadu, My first darkroom was a cupboard under stairs, rather cramped, but enough room for my Gnome enlarger,3 dishes and a small chair , much needed as not enough room to stand upright, that was a long time ago,but I still managed to produce some ''Masterpieces''

Default Thank You

Dear All,
Thanks for the kind welcome.
Would anyone know where I could find spare parts for a Fujimoto 60M enlarger?
