3460Re: drying rack, was very large trays
- Feb 19, 2006Yes, they are cumbersome, and anyway the wings are useless for bigger formats ( I use 70
x 50cm, that is ca. 27.5 x 20 inch). I simply get hold of an iron-saw and saw off the wings,
makes the racks much more handy. When you use not only the rods but also the frame of
the racks, there is room for 20 sheets per rack. As 80 to 85 full-size sheets are what I can
do per day when the pattern and the weather gods allow, 4 racks are what I need. They
last for years.
