First of all, for my 35mm slides I sometimes use a Fuji processing mailer ($3.29 from B&H or Adorama). It's inexpensive, and the slides are mounted, so they gather fewer scratches and dust.

Most of my 35mm film (slides, negatives, and B&W), and all of the 35mm pushed film, my 120 film, and my negatives I process myself using the Jobo CPA processor. The processor is a large heated water bath (to maintain constant temperature of chemicals and film), with a device that rotates the film or paper tube to ensure constant flow of chemicals inside (I also have the lift, which makes it much easier to pour chemicals into and out of the tube). The film is loaded onto reels and placed in a light-tight tube with an opening at one end for chemicals. I put the tube on the processor for a few minutes to let it warm up, then start the development process by adding the chemicals (which have been stored in the water bath) for the proper number of minutes (see the chemistries page for details). The process takes from 5 minutes (RA-4) to 35 minutes (E-6). After the film is processed and rinsed, it is placed into a stabilizer bath, then hung up to dry. After about 4 hours of drying, I cut it into strips and place it in storage sleeves. All processing is done in my kitchen. I have to be very careful with chemicals to not contaminate my food. I keep all chemicals in Rubber Maid 1 liter plastic bottles, and oxygen-sensitive chemicals (developers) are kept in a tray in the fridge, next to the paper.

I have a Saunders/LPL 670 Dichroic enlarger. It's very nice, easy to use. It has three adjustable filters (magenta, cyan, and yellow) for setting the filter pack. Dichroic filters are non-fading glass filters that get their color from the thickness of the surface layer, so they are very reliable. The adjustability comes from how far into the light path they extend. I have a very nice Rhodenstock Rodagon APO 50mm lens for 35mm film, and a cheap Schneider 75mm lens for 6x6 film. I find the Saunders/LPL ET-500 timer to be very easy to use. It's an enlarger timer (from 0.1 sec to 999), and also a process timer. It's got a nifty feature: all the times are set using dials (very easy to set), and while the timer is going, you can reset the dials for the next step. I also have a very cheap enlarger exposure meter, a nice 16x20 boarderless easel, and a sturdy TV stand so I can roll the enlarger into my light-tight bathroom for processing. I have film holders for 35mm mounted slides, 35mm strips, and 6x6 strips.

I'm using a used Saunders 4x5" enlarger now, with a Rodenstock Rodagon 135mm f/5.6 lens. Very nice. I'll sell the 6x7 enlarger soon.

I'd like to get a nice RC paper drying rack, but they are too expensive still. For now I put towels on my table and ironing board and set prints out to dry. All chemicals are disposed down the drain with lots of water.
