    Hi,
    I'd like to buy a preferably small capacity drum for developing 120 film with a Jobo CPE 4050 processor, but have no idea which will fit this particular machine, which seems to be an older model. Can anyone help me with some information about the options available? Is there a manual available online, because I personally couldn't find one?

    Ragards,
    Bogdan

    Can you post a picture of the processor so we can see what it looks like? That will help us determine what you need.

    Someone can correct me if I am wrong, but I believe you can use the latest 1500 series drums with a magnet on these machines.

    If it uses 1500 drums the 1540 tank can do from 1 to 4 rolls of 120 or 1 or 2 rolls of 220.

    I think it also uses Jobo tanks the number of which starts with 4, although I am not sure if all tanks starting with 4 would be compatible with this machine. I've seen some classified or auction somewhere with this machine plus some 4xxx tanks.

    Thank you all. I finally decided to pull the trigger on a Jobo 1520 drum. Hopefully it will work.
