Default A new tank for 10x8 and smaller

The new Stearman has arrived with Speed Graphic and details are here.

The Orbital is still cheaper (or was when I last checked out the various dealers); but this looks like a more versatile piece of equipment.

You'd think those 'fins' on the inside of the lid would possibly scratch the soft emulsion of the film during processing or are they removable?

Marty, this alternative supplier's description is fuller and addresses the point you make.

You will see that it's a lot cheaper from Freestyle too. Hmm.

I recently bought some stuff from Freestyle

They are easy to do business with and export quite happily to the UK without exorbitant postage charges.

Don't forget we pay 25% customs and vat charge on the prices shown - so roughly speaking in the end it costs the same in US dollars as it does in UK pounds.
