Paterson Film Squeegee
For removing one of the darkroom's regular annoyances: watermarks on your film that you only notice when you get to printing or scanning!
Watermarks are formed when the film still has droplets of water on the surface when it's hung to dry. Don't be tempted to use your fingers or a cloth to dry the film: the fibres in cloth and the oils on your skin can cause more permanent damage to the emulsion.
Instead use a squeegee for quick, easy and damage-free removal of all excess droplets. The soft rubber blades will catch all water without scratching the emulsion. Hurrah for easy scanning!

Works pretty well. Helps to prevent drying streaks on film. Wide enough or 35mm and 120.
It's a pretty straight forward product - helps to eliminate annoying watermarks that can occur during drying, by simple squeegeeing (is that a word?) the moisture off the film surface. I particularly like that fact that the top and bottom parts interlink a bit, resulting in a very smooth and accurate travel when dragging it along a set of negatives. The size of the item makes it ideal for both 35mm and 120 formats of film. Larger formats might be a tad tricky though, hence the 4 stars.
