Martin thanks for that, I have often cut and rethreaded 35mm when I have wanted the negs quickly so this seems a deffinate goer, now to find cost of back.

They suggested to not buy a tank b/c of weight and cost, rather to try a 5-gallon Igloo drink cooler! I couldn't imagine sloshing 5 gallons around like a daylight tank, so bought the 2-gallon version. It will hold 2 reels, but is a smidge too small to hold 3 reels (each reel is supposed to hold 13').
I'm nearly ready to go: Hassy back, cassettes, bulk loader, reels and "tank". I have some film (old Tri-X), but I want to get my back CLA'd first b/c I don't want to run 50 shots through it then find out that I have a light leak or overlap...
Don't know about your back but usually you can fire some frames off. Take the back off in the darkroom. Cut the film and remove the take up can. Then process the exposed film.
Isn't 70mm still produced for IMAX?

rolland elliot has a jobo-alternative for 125 usd for use on jobo machines(cpa2/cpp)- a good investment.
george s. pearl of atlanta( go to panphoto.com forum) offers a similar one. both have no film-reel-loader like jobo.
the easiest way is buying the still existing 2517-reel from jobo(maybe they are out of stock at jobo germany) 2517=220-lenght(185cm). loading in 2500 tanks or testdrum(for prints 10x40cm). buy jobo cpa2 or cpp-rotating machines. high-quality-development with waterbath of you use hot-processes. i used 500ml-bottles but replenished. bought 5 lt- solution.
one can easily push/pull films, also colornegative. agfa avicolor are built to do this. you dont need b+w anymore when using x100 or x400. also ideal for scanning, have no mask.
i have older ilford xp-2 400 -DP(2x 70mm/30m) left. maybe will use for special developments. dont know which one is best. i use 70mm in roundshot 65/70/220. 120 is also possible.
Yes, of course, but that is not still camera film.

I've heard a few people mention they would like to buy 70mm backs. I have three Hassy ones sitting around (they take perforated film, but I believe can be modified for unperf. too if you just remove or sand down the teeth on the roller; I even have a Mamiya that runs unperf with the perforated roller still in), so send me a PM and make me an offer!
Does anyone know of any former cassette suppliers other than Linhof? I want to get in touch with everyone who made the cassettes to see if we can't just get a new run of them made, or find a new company to make them.
Hewes - 70mm reel to fit Jobo tank 2500 series
I have been in contact with Hewes with regards to fitting their reel into a jobo tank.
Nigel from Hewes, got back to me with the following information ; they are happy to run a small run of 50 units of 70mm reels to fit the jobo tank 2500 series at ú30 + 17.5%VAT per unit.
I'd be game for a reel, is there enough of us for a production run?
I'm interested, Delphine. Tell me again, what length will fit on a Hewes reel?
Thanks for checking into this.
