    I can vouch for the effectiveness of the processor. It certainly is easier than using tray development or a slosher tank. With gentle agitation, the results are outstanding. An added plus is that Morgan is a great guy to deal with.

    I've been using my processor since August of this year with no problems. It's as easy as processing 35mm.

    does he make one for a 5-reel tank that holds more?

    it's a bit out of my price range for 4 pieces of plastic but i may be interested in a bigger one

    Tried it several times, no complaints. Although I do have a darkroom, it is nice to develop my film in the living room. Paterson tanks rule over here in Europe. Often use it with HC110, and just 1 to 4 neg's at a time. Fine for me.
    It looks like you should never drop it on the floor, luckily I didn't yet.

    On different APUG threads people are very happy with this item. His answer to my question if this is suitable for 9x12cm: next year ! So, maybe he's planning a whole range of inserts :smile:
    Don't drop Combiplan inserts either :sad:

    Seem nice, price is a bit steep though. I imagine if the Taco Method of developing in a Paterson tank ever fails me I'll place an order about fifty-three seconds later.

    The price is purely a function of the low production volume. If there was demand to justify producing 10,000 units the price would drop. At least it would after competing designs started hitting the market.



    For right now, if there was demand for high volume and no alternative the price would skyrocket.
