    I have almost cracked it............ Two welds and it will be done. I have made an arm for the JOBO lift. This will help when using the expert tanks. Any interested people send me a PM and I will send pics in the next day or five. I will be making these at a fair price (for those with 5 thumbs on each hand and no tools) and will provide plans at no charge for personal use only for those who what to make there own.

    That sounds like a great idea.
    Thank you. PM sent.

    Ten Thumbs and lots of tools. The better to break things.
    But I do have a neighbor with both electric and gas welders
    who has a couple of my prints on his walls. He may want a third.

    Pat,
    A simple solution to a complex problem, nicely done.
    Which Jobo is that? Looks like it could be 1500 series. If it is the 1500 do you know if there is an 8X10 negative drum that will fit?
    Thanks

    Bruce,
    the drum is a 3063 and a 3005 both are very large and weight in a couple of KG's it is mounted on a CPP2, Jobo used to make a 1500 series print drum I can't remember the model number.

    I have posted a video of the 3063 tank running on my CPP2 at speed to check for fouling. I have received many requests which I have hopefully answered. If not send me a private message with you email and I will reply.
    If the link doesn't work try search 3063 drum on youtube
