Nice set, but your light box and one light bulb will that be enough and the distance seems to deep?

the light is 17 inches from the glass the same distance i had the light when i had a over head exposure unit. my light is 500 watts. but if it is not intense enough the i am planning to put in a 1000 watt security halogen light. already checked the lighting store. but i think my next diy is a black light exposure unit. i just want this for the simple stuff.

Are you going to add a 4 color rotating press or stick with the single press?
Like the all in one design, keeps things organized.
for this design i am sticking with the one color press. i and thinking of the 6 color silver press for future upgrade. my next challenge is a exposure unit and screen dryer.

got busy, here is my wash out sink and my finished flash
That looks good. I'm guessing you made the washout booth out of plexi-glass? I have a sink already in my garage, but need to put something around it so water won't splash everywhere. I might have to take your plexi-glass idea and try that. :tipthank:
