    I've got a couple Yankee-type tanks that I'm willing to sell for $25 each (plus shipping). Let me know if you're interested.

    I used both a Yankee (the later ones with the drop-in 12-sheet holder) and Jobo.
    The Jobo is easier to use but I thought the negs were a little to contrasty for me -- following their roller rotation method.
    So I instead used it upright per the Kodak method with regular inversions.
    The Yankee tanks are good if you have a good technique. To make the liquid go over the neg surfaces evenly
    you'll need to do twist the tank right and left, like a washing machine agitator, periodically to get good movement.
    Then you'll get good negs with only moderate spilling out the top.
    Oh, and the yankee tanks are also very good if you want to do open tank dipping from dev. to stop to fix. Several tanks can be quite handy.

    This might be a solution. It is what I use and my volume is not real large.

    I just saw one of these go for $61 on eBay the other day.... I was shocked.

    I have a combiplan I'm not using because I'm tray developing by inspection. I think they are discontinued now?
    $80 paypal'd and shipped. Ex+ condition, complete with box and (I think) manual.

    Just fyi, the Yankee tanks... I used one in college, I only ever managed to do 6 sheets at a time, leaving half the slots empty, and had to slosh the crud out of it with a tray under it to catch the spills using dilute D76. I tried a few other methods and soups and ruined everything else. YMMV, but those things have a horrible reputation. The Jobo and Nikkor S.S. tanks work out well for many people.

    Personally, if a Jobo + rotation (CPE/CPP) is not an option, I'd only want to do stand dev. with these tanks. That's what I do with B&W 4x5s when I'm on the road. I keep around a Jobo 2509 + tank just for this purpose (at home I use an Expert Drum on my CPP2). Rodinal 1:100 all the way
