    That 70mm reel is certainly unusual, I had no idea that they made such a beast. What is the outside diameter, does it need to go in the larger 4-1/4" diameter tanks?

    I have a couple of the 116/616 reels, which fit in a Q15 to Q18 tank. They show up on eBay several times a year.

    No, this is closer to 7" in diameter! (Though as you can see, a maddening 1mm or so too small for the Hewes reel to fit in...)

    I was able to find one Nikor 70mm reel locally. More than 30 years old/new stock. I don't think that I will go for full set up here for processing (don't we all wish the same, all the time??) so with addition of one tupperware container I will be ready for 70mm film processing in the dark. This reel is 4 1/4" wide.

    Well, the earlier (I think) Nikor system included 4.5" tanks, so that's what you need. Those are most often seen these days with the 4x5"-and-smaller cut sheet reel, but they had larger versions of 35mm and 120 reels for them too, and tanks of all sorts of heights to go along with them. Even deeper in storage, somewhere, I bet I have a 4.5" tank that would hold that reel (and is too small for the 4x5 reel, so not worth its weight in gold like that one is!)
