I have always used Gra-Lab's mechnical clock timer, but over the years, its accuracy is fading and nonexistent under 5 secs. I would lke to replace it with a timer that is digital, has two outlets, times down to 0.1, voltage regulator? and possibly evens allows you to run a second time after the exposure to time the print...I have looked at various Beseler, Gra-Lab, and Kearage models...does anyone have any great recommendations or any models to avoid? I only do B&W printing at home? Thanks in advance.

I have the Graylab 505 at home and the 525 at work. The 525 allows multiple times but I find it insn't a problem just to reset the 505.

Not all digital timers can handle a cold light head, so I would look for one with this capability. You might consider looking for models that permit specifying tenths of seconds, versus whole seconds. There are times when it's convenient being able to specify less than a full second change in an exposure.
