    I think there is a version of those made currently, maybe in Spain, and Freestyle sells them, if I remember correctly.

    I've never used Hewes, but the the most difficult thing about loading SS reels is getting it started centered and straight. It sounds as if they have come up with way to address that problem.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    Yep, they were way cool!
    I used to have those for 70mm development for laboratory (electroforesis picuteres) and such

It was the only time that I ever used, or even saw them.

    Thanks, now I know where to stock up on them

    I agree with the Hewes reels. Excellent. But I own more of the cheap, generic stainless reels than anything else. As long as they are not bent, they work fine.

    Good Evening, Huram,

    If you insist on plastic, the Pattersons are the choice. My vote is with stainless steel for the reasons given by others in the posts above. My preference is with Kinderman, due to the spike at the center which positively anchors the film; apparently Hewes reels have a similar feature, but I have never had the opportunity to use them.

    Are you describing the Kodak "Readyload" Developing tank? - Daylight loading - no darkroom necessary?

    WORST pice of unreliable *JUNK* I ever had the distinct misfortune to encounter. It gave me a great deal of pleasure to take my "Marquis De Sade Signature Model" to my local rifle range and put the devil-spawned ^$*^@#$ thing out of its misery. Never were pieces of plastic flying through the air so satisfying!
    Carpe erratum!!

    I use both Hewes and Kindermann Stainless Steel reels. I prefer the Hewes film clamp to the Kindermann spike. The Hewes film clamp is less destructive.

    No. David nailed it [ http://www.freestylephoto.biz/sc_pro...t_id=&pid=5628 ].

    Years ago I got an Agfa daylight-load tank when I bought a used Mamiya C-33 that I tried a few times. I don't know if it is the same, but to this day, there is a hole in the sheet rock in the hallway wall directly opposite from the doorway to my darkroom that is the exact size and shape of that tank. I guess our experiences with "no darkroom necessary" tanks were similar.
