    I noticed this on Craigs list for Omaha Nebraska.

    I have seen several people ask about these but I have never seen one in action. The price seems very good. I have no connection with the item.

    The price is excellent. I have one that I found on CL for $100, I just set it up this week and ran a few rolls. Excellent once you have your times down for rotary devlopment...

    It's biggest advantage compared to most Jobos is that you just push a button and walk away. It'll fill and drain all the chemicals automatically, and the programs are customizable.

    The biggest disadvantage is that it runs at one temp for B&W (75 degrees F)...
