    1. It's Kinderman, btw
    2. Tanks don't matter a whole lot, reels do (I assume that's what you mean)
    3. Are you looking for single reel, double, larger?
    4. Might be helpful to identify where you're located (US, Europe, Australia, Antarctica)

    If you're in the US, pm me and I can totally hook you up. I've bought two huge darkrooms in the last two weeks and have tons of stainless steel 35mm reels and tanks. Some of it is already on eBay.

    well I want something with a decent lid, preferably screw on, double preferably (but will take single too) and good 35mm reels, i've heard good things about hewes?
    I'm located in Australia, but have a USA po-box if your willing to ship to that?

    Does anyone make a screw on SS tank? I've never seen one.

    None that I know of, just the plastic tank lids screw on. I have SS tanks with plastic snap on and metal slip fit lids, and plastic tanks with screw on lids.

    I find a single roll (35mm) tank a very handy addition to the double roll tank. Great for that odd roll (just shot one, different emulsion, test roll). Hewes reels are very hard to find used; but worth the effort. Plastic tops for stainless steel tanks are great, but they do get brittle over time and crack. No big deal, as you can buy new replacement tops.
