Well....................

It was built BY him from components, he is an electrician.

Just to let you know, that neither of the google links work, although the first pictures show what it's like, so unless there is anything different to show, I'd leave it at that.

As for the maker, you can only say thanks a million to them and be extremely grateful. Well done who ever you are!

PS And just thinking more about it = presuming that the enlarger whilst plugged in, turns off after the timer gets to zero, then that is a really good basic timer that he's made.

I have an RH Designs meter, but I bet there would be a good market, especially for beginners, for this type of unit. Thoughts anyone???

Perhaps but this was a thank you to the kind person who made one especially for my son and me , it turns it on times down and turns off from 99 minutes and seconds to 1 second, what more do we need

And one person's basic low cost is not to some, ebay only have old or 80 plus

That is exceedingly good of him. I assume he thought as much of the comments by "that guy" as you did!

Enjoy!

Cannik, I've just thought the obvious.

It would be good if you actually thanked the guy who made the item for you, on the original 'electrical forum', where hopefully he (?) would read it, along with the 'analogue photography doubter'.
