    Just looking for 1 or 2 Bessler or Unicolor 11x14 drums. Loading these is my bottle neck to processing more 5x7 film, so I'd like to have a few of them so I can knock them out.

    I have a Bessler and mostly happy with that, so I'd take another 2 of them. But I'd consider a Unicolor too. Actually might prefer the unicolor.

    Thanks!

    I likely have one; I will need to dig around.

    Postage form Canada plus perhaps $5?

    (207) is Maine, I believe. I can't find too many other clues as to where you are at to see what might be involved to get one, if I have it.

    I do have a 20x24 drum, with a ton of ribs and stoppers so your 5x7 backlog could be over in a flash. Actually I am not sure it has enough ribs and stoppers to load it up with 5x7.

    Most of my roller drums are Simmard, which was a Canadain importer of days past. I consider them of eqaul qulaity to Beselar and Unicolor, for I have a few of those hiding here or there.
    My drms do not see much use since I put my roller processor into service a few years ago, but I keep a few around for the day when the rollers becomes unrepairable.
