Re: Pt/Pd Chemistry in Singapore
You'd think in a developing country there would be loads of gear laying around as they are, technically, behind in development. The reality is that they often skip developmental stages. Before digital imaging came around, Indonesia was VERY poor. There are a few shops that sell used film gear, but few is the key word. I've found one shop that sells papers and chemicals, so if your friend speaks Bahasa Indonesian I'll see if I can look up their number. But I don't remember seeing any enlarging equipment.

The fellow in Singapore just called again and now has a question about enlargers. He's having a devil of a time finding a used unit that will only be used as a time-able lightsource to expose digital negs on silver gelatin paper. Quality construction and optics are not issues. I told him he could probably use a timer with a 15W bulb on the ceiling but he wants to be sure of even, center-to-corner illumination.
Can you suggest any places there in Indonesia where he could pick up an inexpensive, used enlarger? Heck, here in the states people will practically pay you to haul them off. ;^) Oh, he wants the enlarger to provide a 16"x20" rectangle of light (or larger).
