    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.]

    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.
