    I was given an perfectly working Noritsu V50 from a retiring photostore. I use normaly a Jobo for prpcessing my own and my customers E6-films. I also do small run of C41. I think that this Noritsu has to large troughput for my buisness. I dont want to clean it and store it. And im pretty sure the chemistry will die if i dont use it every day.

    But: - Can i re-buil it with small "one shot" tanks and run E6 filsm trough it. As far as i have seen, it is 7 tanks inside it. And ill guess il can program the speed of the film trough it. Maybe i even can make an B&W machine out of it, since B&W is what i do most - personally and for customers.

    Any ideas folks. Im going to give this machine a furnished and safe home until "she" is an adult ANYWAY :smile:

    I don't think you can go to E6 from C41. For Kodak E6 you need BD, wash, RB, CD, PB, B, F, Wash, final rinse, dry. I wouldn't risk it.

    It has 7 tanks....but only four actual replenisher tanks. I haven't toyed with too many noritsu products...but as an example a similar capacity fuji film processor... the first huge tank with two racks in it is DEV, then one bleach, then two fix, then 4 stab...eight tanks in total...but the two fixes are replenished with one line as are the four stab tanks.
