Item details

Traveling tanks make it possible to sensitize your plates and to stock your precious silver nitrate bath safely. A must to have for the itinerant wet-plate photographer.

This tank will accept 4x5 inch plates and smaller. It is made of 3/16 inch (5mm) black acrylic.

The stand is made of clear unbreakable polycarbonate. It folds up against the tanks for an easy transport or storage.

The cover features a rubber foam gasket and two stainless steel clasps on each side to ensure it is leakproof.

The dipper has opening at the bottom to let the silver flow away when recovering the plate. The two hooks on each side have two fonctions. They create a little space between the dipper and the tank to prevent sticking effect. And they stop the dipper at the proper position when flipping to recover the plate.

Internal dimensions : 14cm(w) x 14cm(h) x 2cm(thick)

A must to have for the itinerant wet-plate photographer.

Shipping : I will ship worldwide within 48 hours. I take great care when handling.
