    Can anyone point me to an user manual for it?
    I'm especially interested in how one should agitate the prints.
    TIA!!

  2. First of all, _BE SURE TO FILL THE WATER JACKET BEFORE APPLYING POWER_! Then
    fill the slots with water, as though you were going to process and adjust
    the temperature. This will take some time.

    After that is adjusted, drain the water and put in the working solutions and
    let them come up to temperature. This will take a while.

    In the dark, expose a print, fasten the agitation clip to the proper edge
    and drop it into the first solution. Agitate by picking up the clip and
    moving the paper in a circular motion in a plane parallel to the separators.

    There are tricks to getting the paper in, speeding up the draining as you
    move from bath to bath, etc., but these require the pictures shown in the
    manual.
