    Michael,

    No thanks, I also got this ATL3 for free.
    I have it now for 2 months, it took me 2 weeks to clean, dismantle and fix the machine.
    I took it all apart, including upper and lower motor houses.

    IC-racer,
    Ofcourse it is practical, but a newer series ATL2x00 is more convinient and somewhat smaller, it only house 6 chemical containers.
    See the manual: http://www.jobo.com/jobo_service_ana...f/ATL-2x00.pdf
    But hey, if you can house an 1840 an ATL3 is peanuts
    I will only fill the chemical tanks with about 20cc more fluids than needed, after the processing I run the cleaning program 3 times to flush all tanks with plain water.
    It will hold the expert drums, even the one for 50x60cm paper (3063).
    It can turn as slow as 25 rpm
    I run my processor with an 2850 Drum (2830 + 2870) so I can process 4 8x10 negatives at a time, a 800 ml of chemicals will be used.

    Michael,

    I made some pictures of the tempering bath drain stop.


    And I also did not see the black chemical reclaiming plate in your video.
    Underneath you place 2 liter chemical bottles to collect wasted chemicals.
    It looks like

    This is my setup in a tiny (3x2 meter) darkroom


    Ask Eddie Gunks, he visited last week, the first time he saw an L1200 enlarger from above
    My darkroom is in a cellar beneath my house.

    If that's where she's at that sounds pretty good to me.

    Michael, I don't have it with me but it is very comprehensive at about 200 pages and to my mind a MUST for any ATL-2/3 owner.

    Cheers Dave UZN

    ps...On the ATL-2 the chemicals to be saved go down 6 little hoppers via the six position arm and into the reclaim bottoles at the front of the machine.

    Dave, yes miraculously the ATL-3 that I got came with that binder, intact, with additional printed-out pages from the tech section of the old JOBO site. I'm trying to figure out a way to get it digitized so I can share it with those from around the globe.

    If there is a CD already available, I would be happy to host it on my server.
