Making The Exposure.

Making The Exposure.

As shown in the accompanying illustrations, the machine consists of an electric light box supported on a stand, with a simple and positive device for bringing the negative and paper into perfect contact during the exposure. The operation is very simple - place the paper on the negative, press the foot lever, release and remove exposed sheet. With negatives of average density it is easily possible to make twenty exposures per minute, as both hands are free to handle the paper. The box is lined with sheet steel, white enameled, and provided with sockets for six incandescent electric lamps, one for a ruby lamp when adjusting the paper, and the others to provide the exposing light. The machine is specially economical of current, as all lights, except the ruby, are automatically extinguished at the completion of each exposure, and automatically relighted at the instant the paper comes in contact with the negative. Any one of the five lights may be turned off at will, when exposing negatives of uneven density. An extra switch is provided for controlling the four corner lights for border printing. Two grooves underneath the negative supporting glass are provided for inserting sheets of ground glass, or vignettes, when printing from imperfect negatives or in making vignetted prints. A sliding panel in the front of the machine renders the grooves easy of access and the necessary changes of diffusing or vignetting screens can be made instantly. The contact pad is fitted with felt, and the contact roller automatically adjusts the pad to any thickness of negative or paper. Direct or alternating current of 110 or 220 volts may be used, but in ordering it will be neces-ary to state voltage desired. If you are not sure, ask your local electrician as to voltage in use in your building. The machine as furnished is equipped with two side tables, affording a top surface of 14 x 38 inches; the red electric bulb and 8-foot connecting cable.
