Trays & Pans

You might ask why are you posting on trays and pans? Good question! I'm doing this because of the unique construction (addtion, really) that Rene's trays come with.

The little "lift" in the tray really helps the Daguerreotypist from damaging the plate when trying to lift it out of the tray. Fingernails and fingers damage the (tender) surface easily!

 I highly recommend this design if you do it. The plastic strips in the bottom of the tray act as ribs to keep the plate from "sticking".

Everything you need for trays in Daguerreotypy. Whole Plate and Half Plate dummies sit inside the trays.
