him was that after you marbled your paper you put the rinse board upright in
the end slop tray section and put your paper on it and then very gently
poured water over the paper (careful not to let the water get into the main
tank). The rinse board rests at about a 45 degree angle while you pour
water over the paper, the water draining out the hole into a bucket which is
on the floor.
At the end of the marbling session you can gently tilt up the tray and the
size will run into the trough and out the hole into the bucket...or you can
pick up the whole tray and empty it into a sink. There is no need to drill
a hole in the main section of the marbling tray.
Hope this answers your question.
