I'm printing platinum and color pigment in registration, so for this size of a negative, I'd need a vaccuum easel. This looked like a pretty compact setup, and would fit on a tabletop.

Hi Jim,
I bought a UV-lamp in a secondhand store for $10. It's a Philips type HP3127F.
Is has 6 UV-tubes (TLK 40W/9) and produces 240 Watt output. It has a (lamp)size of 12x24" and can easily light a field
of 15x30 or even a bit more (depending on the box I'm gonna build around it).
II haven't done platinum printing but I did some Cyantype, Kallitype and Gum printing with UV-lamps like these.
It works fine.
Maybe an option for you??

Onderwerp: Nu Arc First Light exposure unit
I'm moving from 8x10/11x14 platinum prints to 16x20-20x24. I've been looking around at exposure units and found one sold by Nuarc called First Light. It's a table top unit with a max screen size of 23x31".  Anyone have experience with this unit? (it sells for about $1300 new)
