  1. I didn't know that there was a problem with isoprop, so that's helpful, but it would help to point out that 70% isoprop isn't isoprop- it's a 70% solution of isoprop in water. The bottle I have for getting splicing tape and chinagraph residues off film is analytical grade, so it's as near pure as you can get.
  2. Grocery stores haven't sold milk in glass bottles in the UK for decades. Only doorstep deliveries are made in glass. There are a few on ebay but they're not much cheaper than Euro crates.
  3. Yes, the tremendous gravity gradient created when they get their wallets out can suck you in.
  4. It would fit a 20x16 inch print developing tray, but at the expense of quite a bit of extra chemical. They are about 3" deep. Unless you could 3D-print a daylight tank...........
  5. And yes, the plate did key into that blue-rimmed badge I was wearing.😑
  6. Looks like the gate mech for a very large format projector.
  7. Apologies for ignoring the forum for a while. Since my lodge can't meet for a while I've dived into bluescreen for a video to share with the chaps next (non) meeting- the toast to absent friends is something we do at dinner. A bit of a Lightworks project as well- I still don't know why some of it works. Took about 20 takes, as well. I'm no actor.
  8. Yes, we're getting really good at that lately, aren't we?😑
  9. As I listen to radio on the computer now, I consigned mine to the garage the other day. Yesterday I found some cassettes. I need to check them. So the radio cassette's coming back indoors. Last month a Steenbeck client asked if by any chance I had a VHS player- I had. We saved one last year after a clearout, and a CRT analogue TV with a SCART socket. Extra (very reasonable) rental fee of course. So it's now earned its keep after spending 7 years disused. Keep the flame alight.
  10. Remember you get a loading allowance for each daylight spool(I believe it's about 3' each end) , but only one for the 400' core. So unless you can measure accurately, one of your spools may be about 20' short.
  11. I don't see any spots because of the edge effects from the circles. Can you re-post without them? No reason for expired stock to be prone to flaking.
  12. If you shot neg, dust spots would be white. If they don't move between lenses, it must be on the prism. It would help a lot if you put up a sample of the footage, or even just a few frame grabs.
  13. Ah yes- the curved edges to make it look like a badly-projected home movie (I always cropped off the edges to get a nice clean rectangle) or a Kodachrome slide.
  14. That's just a toy. Real geared heads weigh as much as a sound recordist's wallet.
