    While deciding/waiting on developing gear, you could do the taco method in your tanks. (Saying you have a 2x120 tank)

    All ya have to do is fold the neg with emulsion in and put a hairband around it and slide it into the tank vertically. I think i could fit 4 or 5 in a tank. Develop stop and fix in the tank, then pore the fixer into a tray and let them fix a little longer in the tray. This will fix where the band was. Then you can rinse them in the tray.

    I occasionally use a Yankee tank for semi stand, Rodineal 1:100, load the tank in the dark, pour in the developer, genital rocking back and forth first 60 seconds, then 2 hours stand with just a couple agitations during development , dump developer, water for stop bath, standard fix. For standard development I use 3 rubber tanks with hangers

    If the emulsion side is facing in then there wont be a problem with fixing. The rubber bans may prevent the anti-halation backing from being removed though.

    Speaking of using a standard roll film tank for sheet processing...I guess that is taco method, eventually without the actual "taco", that is without the rubber band.
    I have been wanting to try the taco method for semi-stand routine but am not quite sure on how I will tackle the agitation. Those of you who use it do you invert the tank? Or do you use a sponge attached to a stick and move it up and down to create a circulation of the developer? These are two methods I thought about doing, but there might be others.

    Unicolor or Beseler paper drums either on a motor base, or simply rolling back and forth on a 2x4. Only used about 200ml of chemistry for up to four sheets of 4x5.

    Yep that the reason why. Thanks for clarifying.

    I have used many different takes for 4x5, however, I highly recommend the Jobo. If you ever want out, it will be very easy to sell. If you want to expand with the Jobo system, you will already have the right tank. The Jobo tank & reel has is a joy to use. Good Luck.

    One more thought. The Jobo, used in a rotary mode, does not use a lot of solution.
