Wet Dry Rack
The versatility, stability, and simplicity of this wet/dry rack is incredible.
What a rack! No, I'm serious! This is unlike anything I've seen before, the versatility, stability, and simplicity of this wet/dry rack is incredible. This single rack can be adjusted to hold plate sizes from 3.5 x 4.5 inches all the way up to 8x10 inches, while stainless steel bead chains lock the movable arms in whatever position you choose to keep the plates secure. It's low profile saves space and makes it significantly more stable than traditional drying racks. The deep, tapered slots provide secure positioning of your plates while keeping the collodion surface free from scratches.
Not only is it useful for drying plates, this rack can also be used for washing plates after fixing. No more worries about keeping plates separated while they drift around on the bottom of a water filled tray. Now you can simply submerge a rack full of plates in a tub of circulating water and when the wash is complete, remove the whole rack of plates from the wash water and set it on a bench to drain and dry. Handling 10 plates with this rack is as simple as handling one. Full racks also stack vertically. If you're processing plates in the field using hypo fixers, this rack will let you easily store your plates in a water holding bath until they can be returned to the lab for proper washing and drying. The rack folds flat for compact storage and transportation. Constructed of materials that won't corrode. After use, simply rinse it in clean water and let it air dry.
