Believe it or not, you can still get PMTs (or something similar), but they cost a bloody fortune.
I've got a little 6-panel brochure for a client that's gonna go to press next week. The printer I'm using just moved into huge, brand new SoA facility featuring the very latest in hi-tech presses and digital processes. The Dennis the Menace in me is thinking... Hmmm, I'm-a gonna bring this job to them as an old-school mechanical, complete with acetate overlays for color sep, and a tissue color-break top sheet. Then I'm gonna bust a gut watching heads explode in the pre-press dept!
When I think back on some of the "dark" rooms I created. The worst one I had was in the wooden shed we had by our mobile home in 1970. I portioned off a corner of it where I sat for all printing. The water source was by a garden hose coming from the trailer. Onetime in October, I accidently put my thermometer in the developer out there. It read 45 degrees. I just shook my head, got right up and never went back.
The ones after that were much better culminating in my palace type one I mentioned above. I told the carpenter I wanted an electrical outlet on every stud. And it hadits own circuit . It was absolutely dark, ventilated, cool and warm when needed. A photo student donated a couple of thick rubber Matts so it was comfortable to stand on. This was in my home. I wonder what the new owners have used that room for. Lots of storage though.

Radiused corner cutter. Rounds the corners on mounting boards so they don't get dog-eared. Doesn't work as well on foam-core, so when I have a non-digital presentation, I mount the creative on black/black illustration board.
One piece of equipment that I used that a lot of people didn't was a stablazation printer, ran the exposed paper thru this kinda automated thing that had three chemicals placed in it, it was great for down and dirty prints...and when I was shooting local stock car races..had one set up in an old chevy van for instant prints of the race.
