Over the weekend I acquired one of those old NuArc light tables - the really nice ones with the hammered-finish steel casing. It's roughly 24" x 30", about 8" deep, and has one of those U-shaped flourescent tubes inside.
I already have a nice large light table, but my first thought about this thing was to try to use it as an exposure unit.
Is anyone here familiar enough with these to know if it will effectively work for exposing screens without having to retro-fit it with different bulbs? I'm not used to exposing with flourescents... the glass top on this has the transparent lucite under the glass to diffuse the light, and the bulb is approx. 2" below the glass...
you guys think it might work as-is?
