    Aggie-

    Can you post a link? I can't find any 'used' section on either the Jobo U.S.A or Jobo International sites. Thanks.

GO DIRECTLY TO THE JOBO SITE. do not pass go. click on their used equipment. scroll down and guess what. Brand new 4341.1 single reel SF kit. It contains the loader, tank, and reel. The full kit. PRICE&#33; becasue the box is damaged it was 53.71 usd. Now that is a savings anyway you look at it. I just bought mine from them. Hope you see this before you buy. </td></tr></table><span class='postcolor'>
    Aggie just one downside. The tank is too small for a motorbase. I still don&#39;t think it&#39;s a good setup for inversion. When I measured it&#39;s just about full when you cover the reels with solution.

    If you want to use it with a processor then the single reel tank should be just perfect.

    If you need to use a motorbase then look for a six reel extension tank. It converts the tank you get in the kit into a eight reel tank. Either that or get the five reel tank. The five reel tank is actually more money. The extension reel uses your lid.

    If you&#39;re not going to do it in trays, and you don&#39;t want to or can&#39;t spend a couple hundred bucks for a Jobo Expert drum, then the 2500 series tanks are the way to go.

    I started with the Yankee thing. The streaking was so bad I think I was using the combi-plan tank within two weeks. The unevenness was bad, and I just couldn&#39;t load the thing easily, so after another month or so I had the 2500 tank. That&#39;s a dream compared to the others.

    I now use an Expert drum on a Beseler motor base because it&#39;s much easier to load than the others, allows me to be much more consistent with the process, and because the times are shorter for rotation agitation there is less temperature change during the process. AND I can use it over and over again when it&#39;s wet. I now can do 10 sheets in 36 minutes, 20 sheets in 50 minutes, and 30 sheets in 80 minutes from holders to dryer. I was never able to work so fast or so consistently with the other systems. But it is pricey, so the 2500 system is a good alternative.

    I like the Jobo tanks and can vouch for the 2521 which will process 6 sheets of 4x5 and my favorite the 2551 which enables me to process up to 12 sheets of 4x5 or a combination of 4x5 and 120 roll and 35mm. I used it on a roller base until I got my CPE 2Plus.

    Jobo also makes, or used to make a manual roller base for the 2521 and it worked just fine and being able to develop 6 sheets of 4x5 in 560ml of developer is very economic.

    Get the Jobo kit - it is the only way to go. The Yankee square tank is VERY expensive. I wasted a month and a box of film before I gave it the heave ho&#33;. Save the month and the film and do it right once. -Frank

    On a related note, will their "Jobo Colorbase" manual system accomodate the 2500 series sheet film tanks? I&#39;ve been wandering around the darkroom hand-twisting mine while chanting, but thought some sort of stationary apparatus, even if I had to hand-crank it, was finally in order.

    I&#39;m not sure but here is the math.

    You can buy the colorbase without it&#39;s motor for about &#036;40 from Jobo site

    Or you can buy a motorbase from Ebay for something between &#036;10-30. Plug it into a timer.

    If you&#39;re tank is big enough to fit the motorbase I know which way I&#39;d go-))

    If you search on the Jobo website for motorbases they have a small page telling you what to look for.

    Something I&#39;ll consider is either Jobo tank, the 2500 or expert, on my Unicolor motor instead of these Unicolor drums if I can&#39;t get the leaking fixed. Going to try some silicon and let set, then unscrew and see if that forms a new gasket. It&#39;s a pain when they leak. I can see why one would spend more money on a nicer Jobo tank.
