      I wonder if any are in the post yet.

      I'll be using this to process B&W. Suggested developers? In the past I've used the divided D76 from the Formulary and HC-110 dilution B. Is HC-110 too "fast" to get even development? Are there any issues with getting the anti halation to wash off?

      Great intro video! I look forward to getting my hands on the system!

      Colin,
      We'll expand on this in the next video. here's the short version. Both outlets have light baffles. One is labeled "fill/drain", it has the removable baffles and lets you fill/drain the tank quickly. The is labeled "Vent" and is mainly for venting air during filling or draining.

      Hi Tim it's looking great.

      Now for one maybe daft question.

      In the video on the right hand side the tank had one film holder/ baffle and a couple of light baffles under the filling cap ( one) on the left hand side just a film holder/baffle with a cap above it, lets call that cap two.

      My question is cap two use when draining the tank ? or cap one is used for both filling and draining. Because it looks like the left hand side with the single has no light baffles, is cap two only used after the film a has been processed as an aid for better washing.

      As I say could be the daft question of the day, or I haven't been paying attention . Colin

      I guess I'm not the first one to sing praises Tim, thank you for your thoughtfulness in pursuit for perfection, so glad that I've pledged in your wonderful project.

      Thanks for the update! I'm looking forward to getting my hands on these, not looking forward to having to experiment and re-configure my dilutions/agitation/timings again, but it's all part of the fun!

      The survey was emailed (through Kickstarter) to all backers, several weeks ago. It should also pop-up on your login screen.

      How do I find this survey to verify my address info??

      Thanks, simple and straight forward. Well done! Well worth the wait I'm already so very sure.

      My dear late Mom used to preach that "Patience is a virtue". She never had to wait for the SP-445. �

      Cannot wait to get mine and try this out.

    13. Timothy Gilbert 6-time creator on July 30, 2016

      It doesn't matter. I usually offset them, just to give myself a little more "finger room" when removing them.

    14. Robert Wolterman on July 30, 2016

      Tim, I cannot wait to get my SP-445!

      I'll finally be able to get through my backlog of 4x5 development since developing in trays in the bathtub is super tedious.

      Question though, does it matter which side the insert/extract tabs for the film holders go? Towards the 3 baffles or away?
