One of the guy's from Airtrax got in touch with me last night, the Ford Anglia kit is still available, infact they have just made some new mold for it, I've PM'd you his contact details so you can deal with him direct
You really need to use matched sets of needle and cap, not only do the #1 & 3 have a different diameter to the #5, the taper at the end is different, I've learnt that from experience, i use a #5 set up to paint my car bodies using automotive lacquer without and problem with the compressor set at 20 p.s.i
There's plenty of second hand Jobo darkroom equipment on eBay, and they don't really go for that much, I nearly upgraded to the later CPE2 set up, but there's nothing wrong with the earlier CPE set up,the only problem I ever had with the processor is the coupling magnet came adrift, a bit of waterproof 2 part epoxy glue soon fixed it back into place, if I had somewhere I could set up a nice colour darkroom set up, I'd really like to have a go at using a few rolls of E-6 film and developing them myself, but I have so many transparencies that I really want to scan my money will be going on a decent film scanner.
Well a few weeks ago i popped into HobbyCraft, but they only sell styrene sheet these days, no strip or anything that would make the floor panel the easy way, so I bought some 40 thou' styrene sheet and ordered some 1.5mm strip on eBay, I spent this afternoon glueing and cutting strip to size, i will leave them to dry up before starting to sand their edges to take off the squareness of them, as I would imagine that being a pressed panel they wouldn't be square in profile, the centre rib has been already profiled
That was the beauty of the Jobo system I used when I moved into developing my own colour film and prints, you didn't need as much chemicals in the drum or tank and because they were being constantly agitated the times of the developing were quicker than using the old type of tank where you had to do it all by hand, and because the chemicals you were using were kept in the TBE unit so the chemicals were kept at the correct temperature
If I had somewhere to have a darkroom I probably would have one, probably wouldn't use it that much as since buying a proper DSLR so I could used all my old Nikon lenses, but it would be good to at least have a go at the old way of doing things, i really used to love locking myself in the darkroom for a few hours.
