That's not what I said. What I said was, that in 25 years of use in a
production darkroom I've never had problems with a gel probe. I have
an assortment of probes, including some for near dry surface
measurements but they rarely see use because I don't have a need for
them a regular basis (or bases :*) What I am saying is CHOOSE THE
RIGHT TOOL for the job. The "most precise" or "ideal" tool is NOT
ALWAYS the right tool. I've been in more than a few labs (and not
just photographic) where the pH meter is just a dusty object in the
corner because it has not been maintained and is not ready to use
because of an electrode that requires maintenance due to infrequent
