    Some time back I bought a case of old dev. tanks on e-bay. Both plastic and steel tanks (not used by me).

    One of the plastic tanks remain a mystery, it came without a top lid, and since it looks like none of the other I cannot use it. I have been looking on e-bay for something similar, to get it up and running, but so far no luck.

    The good thing about this little tank is that the spiral is easily adjustable, and will take 16mm, 35mm, 127 and 120/620 films. Since I have 16mm cameras, my interest should be obvious.

    I was wondering, from these pictures, if anyone remebers/recognizes this tank, and can steer me in the right direction for parts.

    Or if anyone has one, but misses the spiral, and needs it desperately:

    maybe, never saw a picture of one, I think Sears was sold in USA only, I'm over in europe, here it was Johnson, Paterson and Jobo that more or less reigned the scene.

    I have though, a Kodak ARO tank, its definitely not that. :wink:

    Could be an old Yankee tank, they were generic and sold under different names including (I think)GAF. They need the plastic top and were agitated with a thermometer/handle.
