    hey all I'm putting together a darkroom and I have most of the big stuff complied together. Just filling in the cracks so here the first in a long line of questions.

    Where's a cheap place to get trays for developing the prints. I went to the local hardware store but they couldn't point be towards anything.

    Anyone know what I'm looking for that's cheap and strudy?

    i havent checked, but I've heard some paint places have larger trays. I could be wrong, but its worth a shot.

    Pet stores, and some super markets, sell kitty litter trays. They're cheap. They can easily handle 11x14's. The only problem is that the bottoms are not ridged on the inside -- prints can be hard to lift off the bottom. You can epoxy a few thin 1/8" thick plastic strips to the inside bottoms of the trays to eliminate this nuisance. I have kitty litter trays that are 30 years old and going strong.
