    Hi Folks,

    A little advice please. Does anyone use a Jobo 2830 print drum to process 8x10 in E6?
    I have a cpe2 plus and have used this drum for b/w in sizes up to 11x14 with no problems, but I wonder if not having much flow on the back of the film might effect a chrome differently. I have on occasion had to re wash 8x10 tri x because of a little pink that didn't wash off completely, but after washing in a tray all was well again.
    Will I have a problem with E6 8x10's in this 2830 drum?
    I appreciate any advice anyone can give, as I would like to give it a try if it is feasible.
    regards
    Erik

    I usually use the 8X10 print drum for 8X10 Ektachrome. It works fine.

    I have done it, without problem.
    I use a homemade insert so I can develop 2 sheets at the same time.
    My drukms are in the 43xx series though.
