    The negatives posted are light in the center, not dark. He is not posting a contact print, (but I may be wrong as it is not clearly stated).

    Yep, exactly. One thing to add which gave the final 'evennness' for me is to do an aggressive inversion motion, but be certain to pause for a bit after each flip (meaning both the first flip and the 'return' flip). This seemed to give the developer the time it needed to actually flow and refresh across the whole of the roll.

    Could be contacts prints or inverted scans of negatives, the results should appear the same. I agree, but I'm so used to people mixing up terms, I just reply to a posted image that I see, and don't worry too much if the terminology is wrong, sometimes.

    +1 for Hikari's suggestion, I forgot to mention that. I measured the amount of water to just fill the tank to the top of the reel, then add an ounce or two for safety. For my tank (Kinderman tank, Hewes reel) I use exactly 425cc. Covers the reel with plenty of room for chems to move around.
