    Default Industrial Sinks- Any Ideas?

    Alright guys, here's the deal: I am trying to find an oversized sink to put in my studio for washing out screens etc. Right now I have one of those large one-compartment laundry sinks, but I want a larger one to accomodate larger screens, so I can make larger prints. Right now, the largest prints I can make are 11X17. The problem is, all of the other large was sicks have compartment dividers, so that doesn't really solve my problem.

    Does anyone know where to get BIG sinks, or have ideas for an alternative I could use? I know a lot of you are washing large screens, and I'm assuming you aren't all doing it in your bathtubs, right?

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Go to a salvage yard.
    One of those places that buy fixtures from tear-downs,
    You can outfit a whole studio at one of those places

    Custom build from plywood or particle board, then fiberglass it.

    I think the salvage yard idea is good, especially if it has industrial/restaurant stuff.

    When I set up in my basement, I got a shower base,
    a piece of plexiglass (a little light from the back helps a LOT),
    and tiled the walls around it.

    see... i knew you guys would know what's up. Looks like I've got a weekend date with the Salvage yard and home depot. Although I had this mental iamge of a large (2.5 ft X 4ft-ish) Plastic wash tub... I can't believe this doesn't exist! Oh well, DIY is more fun anyway.
