The tank and reel combined will cost about $170. I know the Yankee option at B&H is a lot cheaper but the reviews are scary too. The Patterson option with the mod54 insert looks good. The problem is shipping to Japan will cost another $40 or more. Amazon Japan doesn't have much... and the Yankee tank they do have is priced over $200!

    So anyway, what are your suggestions or recommendations? I will only be doing B&W film for the time being.
    This what I use and how I use it...

    The Nikor will hold more film (12 sheets) than the liter of developer is rated for. Every other slot is a good match for chemistry volume to emulsion area.

    Depends on the developer and the concentration. The Nikor tank uses 1200ml for 4x5". I don't have any trouble with Acufine (stock), ABC pyro (1+1+1+12 is what I usually use for 4x5"), and I think you would be fine with D-76 stock or 1+1 and maybe even 1+3. I'd be concerned, though, about Rodinal 1+100 or PMK 1+2+100.

    Thank you everyone for lots of great input. I will give it some more thought and probably have my wife bring something back in her suitcase in May.

    I've been using a Jobo 2000 series tank since 1976, these were pre-rotary and mine takes two reels each holding 6 sheets. You need 1 or 2 litres of solution depending on whether you use 1 or 2 reels.

    For economy I used replenished Xtol, very quick and easy, or Rodinal, these days I only use Pyrocat HD. When I moved to Turkey I placed a wanted advert on this forum and bought a second tank to leave there.

    Since we're dealing with "what ifs" and the OP's in Japan, The Patterson & MOD54 may be less expensive to ship & it's considered a very good combination.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    Thanks John. B&H wants over $40 to ship to Japan for either the Yankee or Patterson & Mod54. I haven't seen the Jobo unit for sale online in the U.S. so I don't know how much cheaper it is there than here where the tank and reel come to $170.
    But like I said earlier, my wife is going to the U.S. in May as both of our sons are graduating (college and H.S.) so I'll probably make up my mind by then and have her bring something back for me.

    I have been using a Yankee daylite sheet film developing tank for 30 years n love it!

    I see B&H has it for $38.
