    Nikor 2-reel 4x5 tank

    Nikor double-reel tank – I’ve never heard of such a thing. Comes with two adjustable stainless reels for cut film up to 4x5 inches, lifting rod. Stainless bands missing, I’ve heard you can use elastics. $100 plus shipping.

    I was at a rummage sale and was idling looking through the tanks and saw one of these. The guy manning it at the time I was there said it was for long roll. If I knew it was for 4x5 I would have snagged it

    I've also never seen or heard about one of these.

    I note that this tank is seamed and crimped as opposed to the single reel 4x5 tanks which are one piece. (I own a very nice single reel version.) Is the tank itself manufactured by Nikor Products Co., Springfield, MA?

    [Edit: Not looking to purchase this. Just curious and hoping either the seller or eventual buyer can answer.]

More people bring their emotions to an image than bring their intellect. The former are the folks who have checkbooks because they are engineers, accountants, and bankers—and generally they are engineers, accountants and bankers because they are not artists."

    Wow! Wonder if that was a special order?

    Considering it's not a quick fill top, that is going to take eons to fill and drain!

    Presume you don't mind that I saved the picture.

    Not that it means much given my 4 years in LF and not much more generally but i've never seen one
    very neat
    and for $100 quite a steal, it would seem

    I'd have thought $300 at cheapest

    still have yet to use my single. want to but always forget.

    You're welcome. I'd never seen one before. I use the single-reel tank all the time.
