    Couldn't you use Nalgene widemouth bottles of the correct size?

    Possibly, I never heard about that bottles before. If one can use any kind of mesure cups that fit in the jobo, I will try.

    The problem with the likes of Paterson beakers is that they have bigger bottoms than the Jobo for stability but this means they don't fit the CPE holes. If however the Paterson beakers were only for the CPE then the bottoms might be cut down or ground down to fit. They might still be OK for standing on a bench as well but wouldn't be as stable. Within the holes however this wouldn't matter and if you can't find the correct beakers this might be a cheaper way of adapting Paterson beakers which otherwise are just as good and have the full range of measurements on their sides.

    There are other makes of beakers such as AP. Do they fit, I wonder? A pity that the Jobo beakers are only usually for sale as part of buying a processor

    Best of luck

    Thanks, I could try to adapt some other brand beakers, but it may be expensive, etc. I could wait and see if with the advent of the CPP-3, jobo would sell beakers, since (I think) ag-photography still sells the 600ml bottles, so It could sell the beakers in a near future.

    The beakers are available new from Jobo right now, but are VERY expensive...
