    Last night I finally got tired of my Paterson tanks. Let me know if anyone has a spare steel tank, a smaller one that holds a single 120 reel or two 35 mm reels would be fine. I'd be happy if the tank came with unbent reels, the particular make doesn't matter.

    While I'm open to all offers, European ones will enjoy priority.

    Thanks,

    Aron

    Welcome into the light. 45+ years with the same tank and reels.
    I hope you find yours very soon.

    Indeed. Going to a stainless tank and Hewes reels for 35mm has made developing tons less frustrating.

    To bad you aren't in Canada or even North America. I have like 17 reels and all sizes of tanks I'm looking to part with for what I think is a very good price.

    Actually, for 35 mm the Paterson system works quite well for me (when the reels are bone-dry before loading), it is with 120 roll film I predictably have developing marks. Quite frustrating when you prefer to show the black borders.

    I'm still open to offers.
