Platypus Tilting Drying Rack (4x5)

A Forster UK Design

Add a little Bauhaus to your darkroom and dry your film and glass plates faster with a Platypus tilting drying rack

Just load your wet film or plates vertically, then tilt the rack so that the water drips from a point instead of collecting along the bottom edge

Currently for 4x5 film and dry plates, but other sizes will become available

Available in kit form or fully assembled

Kit comprises of;

2x Frames (1x front, 1x rear)

5x Dividers (3x standard, 1x Rear Support, 1x Front Support)
10x 25mm x 3.5mm Black Phosphate Coated screws

The parts are designed so that they can only be fitted in the correct place

The 3D printed parts are made from UK/EU manufactured PLA (plant-based, recyclable and industrially compostable)

The screws are manufactured in the UK or EU (depending upon the supplier)

If in doubt as to whether the drying rack is correct for you, please get in touch
