# Re: [Frameworks] Footage equivalency

```Awesome- Thanks to Ed, Ekrem and Roger, very helpful info.

Ed, would you be willing to you describe your basic set up and process?```
```
As far as chemistry goes, how many feet are reasonable to expect to get
from a gallon run of e-6?

Thanks for the great info thus far!
