    But I can't do that easily with my all SS Nikor tanks. While I normally tape the cover to the tank, just in case, I don't do similar to the small cap, and that is a leak point. The Nikor tanks were not made to be kept on the side w/o leaking.

    I wonder if someone sells plastic tank covers that will fit onto a Nikor tank?
    I've used it with an all-steel tank and a very wide rubber band. But mainly just to try it - it is a bit of a hassle.

    I do have steel tanks with plastic lids, but I don't think they are Nikor.

    Ah OK right, forgot about those. (Is it "those" or "that one"? I've only ever seen the 35mm version.) If you're hand-processing in a stainless tank, either will work fine though. I picked up some Hewes reels cheap on ebay because they were in sealed Jobo boxes and the seller didn't make it obvious what they really were. But I knew!

    In late to the discussion, but I am a huge 35mm-Hewes-reel'ite; though, I love the 120 reels that LPL makes that have 'the clip' instead of a 'spring-thing'

    I finally ordered a couple 35mm Hewes reels. They arrived today and I've been practicing with an uncut strip of developed film. I really like how the pins work, and the reels seem fairly robust. I've not used them yet but like them already.

    I finally used it for real (in a changing bag). Wow, this was the fastest and easiest load I've ever done. The pins make it easy to start and align, which are the two things that cause me grief with stainless reels.
