    hello,
    i just got a CPP2 jobo processor (i waited a long time for this:smile: ) i have a bit of a problem.
    it has no lift and a magnet drive system. it came with one 4521 and three 4541 drums and on that has lost its lable but the diameter is between the two. i would guess a 4531? i also have some 2500 series drums (2551 as well as an expert drum) that i got with a previous darkroom purchase.
    short of buying a lift is there any way to use my 2551 drum? it has a cog lid. with what i have how do i go about processing 35mm, 120, 4x5 and 8x10? can i make it work somehow? if not what should i do?
    i have been dying to process my own E6. i have everything now except the knowledge on how to make what i have work.....if possible. i really want to process my own 4x5 and 8x10 first and then the 120.

    thanks

    eddie

    Dear Eddie,

    Congratulations on your purchase, you'll wonder why you waited so long! Jobo magnets turn up on ebay all the time. While I'm sure the lift is nice, I use a 2551 drum with the magnet drive on a regular basis. You can use a funnel to load the tank if you only have cog tops.

    Get a lift

    The lift makes using these processors so very much easier, I'm sure there are ways to do what you want without a lift but you wouldn't regret getting one. You can add it to your system with little effort. At least in Europe they are still available new and often appear used as well.
