Paterson Changing Bag – I’ve used several different changing bags over the years. The Paterson is the nicest I’ve found.
Safety Scissors – sharp enough to cut the film, not pointed enough to damage the changing bag.
Hewes 35mm Reel – the easiest to load 35mm film reel ever made, and I’ve tried them all.
Kindermann Stainless Tank – I arrived at my choice of the Kindermann tank backwards. Hand tremors make it difficult for me to pour liquids into most developing tanks. Kindermann made a funnel that makes it a lot easier. The funnel only properly fits Kindermann lids and they work best with Kindermann tanks.
Kindermann Funnel – hard to find but it makes pouring the chemicals into the tank a lot faster, which helps with timing accuracy.
15ml Graduate – for measuring the Rodinal.
100ml Graduate – for measuring the fixer.
300ml Graduates (4) – with color coded tape for developer, water stop bath, fixer, and wash water.
Paterson Mixing Rod – the plunger shape produces more turbulence in the graduate than the old Kodak paddle style rod.
Weston Dial Thermometer – accuracy is important, repeatability is even more so.
Paterson Film Clips – they just work.
Not Shown – bottle opener for opening regular film cassettes, eye dropper bottle for Rodinal, nitrile gloves to minimize chemical exposure and my iPhone running the Massive Dev Chart app as a timer.
