    Does anyone know if Paterson processing reels will fit (and work well) in a Jobo 1520/30/40 tank?

    Thanks.

    No..

    I can't remember which way round it is but one has a larger diameter, so it's spirals won't fit in the other tank. The other has a smaller core, so it's spirals won't fit over the other core.

    Somehow I thought that must be the case. Thanks for the reply.

    The Jobo plastic reels are smaller by .5" or so.
