Used for small volume of prints - much easier than the manual method in a plain tray - the flow of water seems effective. Hoses may loosen if the radius is tight, not a problem if it is placed to avoid sharp bends for either hose.

I have a smaller darkroom and this washer is perfect for my platinum printing. I mainly do 5 x 8 but this willl work very nicely for 8 x 10 or a little larger.

How many full size prints (8x10) or larger can you put in at one time?
Asked by: Alvin
The Paterson 12x16 High Speed Print Washer has a maximum print size of 12 x 16 in (30.48 x 40.64 cm). The four separators can split that maximum size into three different sizes including: two 6 x 16 inch prints, two 8 x 12 inch prints, or four 6 x 8 inch prints. You can therefore use two 8 x 10 inch prints side-by-side in the 8 x 12 inch separator configuration. It is not designed to stack any prints so only one layer of the two 8 x 10 inch prints is possible.
