The stuff does not seem to be going anywhere and I am in no hurry to clean out the garage. We are coming up to Lee Vining in June so I will touch base with you before that. Maybe we can hand some of it off.

Like for my grandfathers Kodak Junior 616. Made great 2 1/4X4 1/2 postcard sized contact prints.
Still worked great in the early 80's.

Now I dunnit! I peeked. Now for a quiz....who can tell me what you think this 60 year old or better darkroom equipment is? A clue; If your Airstream could fly this could be usefull.

It's a contact printer. Why would this be useful for flying, except it would make one heck of an anti-colision beacon. BTW, more than 60--it was old when I was a teenager.

Not sure about the first photo (an analog scanner , but the second looks like an OLD enlarger ... We had some ancient models in my high school darkroom (where I spent countless hours), but nothing quite that dated. I'd offer to take it off your hands, but my wife would probably kick me in the knee ...

I have always preferred film to digital. There just isn't any comparison. The quality you get with 35mm film is way ahead of anything I have ever seen with even the highest res digital. Some come close, but nothing is as crisp or clean or has the color saturation in the end product. And if you want a high res digital image, you get a much smaller file if you have a good scanner and scan the image. Just my humble opinion.

Ahh... 24 exp? I would keep cranking till I couldn't get any more on the canister spool. Down-side, I had to always keep a darkroom bag handy because the counter stopped at 36 on all my Nikons and I would never know how many shots I had. I finally got smart and picked up a 250 back for the F2.

The F2 was perhaps the finest camera Nikon ever made ... (provided you didn't want to mount a strobe, which is equally annoying on my F3 -- thank goodness for fast glass).

We would also squeeze as much film as we could fit in a can, but you always had to watch our chief photographer when he was loading the canisters: sometimes he would get distracted by something, and only load up about a dozen frames. Or, he would do so on purpose, and tell you that if HE were doing the shooting, he wouldn't need but two or three frames to get the shot ..

I think the one image is a grill with bellows to get air to the coals. The first one a great big door stop or to block your airplane tires when landed.
