    I picked up a Jobo Multitronic timer/analyzer today on eBay- I was the only bidder for $60. It's part of Jobo USA's liquidation of its Ann Arbor, Mi. headquarters and was used by Jobo employees in the company darkroom "without failure". New these sold for $495. I really am mainly interested in the "process timer" part of the gizmo. You can program up to 3, 9-step processes, ie. E6, C-41 or R4 etc. which would be helpful in running a manual rotary processor. It comes with its manual but if anyone has any comments about this item, pro or con, I would welcome it.

    The Multitronic arrived DOA.... Going back tomorrow if there's still someplace I can send it!
