    NO, but I develop 6.5x9cm film in a Jobo. The 2509n reels can be set to 9cm, 12cm or 4".

    I do "odd-size films" - i.e. anything which doesn't fit the reels - in print drums. :smile:

    Jobo USA used to sell a modded 2509N. It was fixed at the smaller size. IIRC the 6.5x9 size of the normal 2509N is too big.

    I have the big expert drum but like to do my 8x10 in a print drum, easier on the machine. What's the smallest print drum?..Thanks..Evan

    2 1/4 sheet film in a Jobo Update

    So I took 2 1501 reels, unlocked them, slid 2 sheets of 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 film in the reels opposite each other and hot welded the hubs together. I can do 4 sheets at a time in 2 reels and it works wonderfully...EC
