Great tip Bob re ionizing air gun. What’s your air/gas source?

Here’s a link to what BobH uses with pricing😳! Doesn’t include air/gas supply.

That keeps dust from being attracted to the surface. Then I use a small laminator I got and modified 20+ years ago to put the film down. Finally, I trim with a razor blade to prevent the edges from lifting while handling the plate. No bubbles.

The one I use does not have an LED light on the nose.

I will now😊. Thanks. 1/8th the price of the Terra Universal unit and works with canned compressed air vs. dedicated tank or compressor. My main concern would be the tendency of canned air to sometimes “spit”...

Good finding, thanks, I hope work well in small areas.
Maybe a good technique to include in a photopolymer manual.

How difficult is it to laminate the hx200 film on a glass plate? and what safelight wavelength do you use during the recording?
I want to try the Bayfol hx200 from Geola (10x10cm film sheets), single-beam tranmission/reflection holograms using 50mw 532nm laser.
Tks
