    You can get a brand new minilab with chems to last 10 years for less then 1000$ on ebay, however, you can only run C-41, and then you can only run 35 and smaller, and maybe if you get a nice one you can run 120 but it will be a bit larger. Most machines can be programmed to do pretty much anything for push\pull or timed\temp changes.
    The cost of chems per roll would be negligible if you keep it running.... BUT - if you ever want to run BW, E-6 or any sheet film it just wount work... Power and water consumption might be an issue as well.

    Any jobo can do pretty much anything you want it do, with fairly few build in restrictions...

    Who says you need to buy a brand new machine? Spare parts and service is here, CPP2 and CPP3 upgrade options are available, so there really isent a need to break the bank.

Will be able to drive the Expert drums in fine fashion and with a couple variables, be able to do cycle times easily. The next one will be a two axis drum, tank and tray agitator which can be programmed to do semi stand with very articulate routines.It will be able to shake in an xy pattern, angular, swirl in a circle or elipse or combinations of all the above and will have programmable dwells. I'll be able to walk away and have it do an agitation routine once every ten minutes and repeat it for an hour..I am pretty excited about it.

    I was wondering if you have posted any photos or the video of your processor? I would really like to go down the path you have tread!
