Re: Rotary Palladium?

I'm not that sure Bill mentioned stuff but you might remember him offering a lot of things for sale.
I've known him and hired him to teach the thing and he is one heck of a wonderful person. I admire
him and as of recent has taken a dream and made it real with a farm and helping young people.

Hi Jack,

he never mentioned that he is retired but it would explain his reticence at having workshops...

Someone recently said they worked with the jobo on prints and my eyes went wild- how does one do that? Was it Gregory Popovitch?

If indeed this is true, and you wish corroboration let me know. Bill has 'retired' to do farming.

I seem to recall an old View Camera Magazine article that described William Laven's technique and that he used a Jobo for processing his prints.


He mentions it the 'current technique's section

Somebody on this list, though who I can't recall now, said that they have
made palladium prints in a rotary tube and never had a problem with tide

So it maybe possible. Try it and see.

Subject: Rotary Palladium?

I've never heard of anyone rotary processing any alt prints for that

matter, but I'm curious if it would work with palladium chemistry in
particular. I'm working 16x20 and just got a big CPI rotary
processor, the processor has multiple tubes for every size up to
30x40, so if this works it would be fantastic! Does anyone have any
experience with this, or think its possible? It would certainly save a
lot of space and make large size palladium much easier. I assume
choice of paper would be critical, and I would have to stop using
Beinfang 360.... Also, how about pre-wetting palladium before
Ammonium Citrate?
