I was over on Tuan's site reading a thread from an up and coming new LF'er. Chris Jordan piped up and shared a bunch of his mistakes while doing Lf. A good answer in itself but the incident about dropping some exposed negatives into the toliet by accident received this response from Jim Roades.

"Wow, I can't say that I've ever used a toilet for a pre-soak. Ya learn something new here everyday. "

Great comeback Jim !!! :smile:

But it even got better with Mark Sawyer's reply.

"Actually, Jim, it's a great way to do rotary processing. Just a flip of the lever to change chemistry, nice swirling agitation, you can do an archival wash in the same container, and clean-up is so simple. And if the temperature gets too low, it's pretty easy to warm up..." :D

I just laughed so hard at this one...I wanted to make sure you all did not miss the fun.

Kind Regards,

Bill Pierce at the Digital Journalist once wrote about the olden days when photojournalists processed film on the road. Something to the effect of "3 flushes for normal work, 10 flushes for archival."

You might think it is weird but a guy on another forum has a bathroom/darkroom that is only used as a darkroom so after a super thurough cleaning he is washing his rolls of film in the toilet. Still on the reeles of course.

That's one idea that didn't go down the drain.

Today it must be the small flushes for normal work and the large ones for archival. :smile:

I'd hate to think what a ULF toilet would look like...

I doubt it would be very comfortable. Not a place to sit for a long read, or a good think.

If you took dietary selenium supplements, you do some intensification...and depending on the accuracy and consistant application of flow, you could even pull off some localized intensification...it would be advised for the Ladies to try this on negatives 5x7 and larger.

Gives "brown toner" a whole new meaning.
