Motors Arrived! – Final Testing

Motors Arrived! – Final Testing

Well after about two weeks, my new motors came from China. Not bad really 2 weeks is pretty quick considering 6 motors and postage was under £6.

These ones look the same as the others except the motor shaft is metal not plastic. They are 60 rpm, where as the older ones were around 15rpm.

In testing I’m happy with the new quicker speed. They seem to be the right combo of quick enough to get the chemicals moving across the film without going too quick.

I intend to do video showing the whole process, starting with a very simple B&W dev of an rpx100 roll I’ve nearly finished shooting. I’m just awaiting some Ilfosol 3 (my generic goto dev) and some more fixer as I’ve ran out.

Watch this space….
