    Any tips for mounting E-6 control strips?

    Hi, I've received as a gift a few controls strips (35mm, perforated). I'm going to monitor my home E-6 development in Jobo 1520 tank with 120 film. I have no idea how to develop it together. Any ideas? Tips?

    -) The easiest way is to use a 2nd reel, locked in the 35mm setting.
    Thus getting a one size larger tank to give space for a type 120 and type 135 loaded reel is the best way to go.

    or
    -) stick the test strip with stainless staples to a fixed out type 120 film strip

    or
    -) cut the test strip into 65mm long strips and locate them vertical on the reel.

    (when using several strips on one reel, means to avoid them slipping over each have to be employed)

    Thanks, I never thought about stapling. It seems like a good idea.

    Yes, a good idea.... but I just realized that at least over here you can't get stainless steel staples intended for use in office staplers. One can get stainless steel paperclips though.
