    Developing 110 film in Jobo

    Since I asked for a 110 camera and 110 film, its time to ask about the processing. I am thinking of my Jobo, but my 2500 series reels don't seem to be able to handle 110. There is a mention of the 1500 reels though:
    http://www.jobo.com/web/1500-Series-Tanks.336.0.html
    Which brings the question:
    Has anyone developed 110 film in their Jobo?

    Yep, got the proper 110 reel for the 1500 series tank and it worked fine. I'm actually using 16mm Tri-X reloads, so it was straight ID-11 at the regular times (remembering the 15% reduction for rotary process). I have never seen a 110 reel for the 2500 tanks.

    Do you think that the 1500 reels would work with a 2500 tank? I am not really sure of their differences...

    I tried the 110 reel on a 2500 column and it fitted, so you could do it. The only downside is that because the 1500 reels are a smaller diameter the film will end up much closer to the centre of the drum and you will need a lot more chemistry to cover them. If you don't mind using the same chemicals for a couple of runs in a row then the cost would work out the same.

    Does anyone have 110 format Jobo reels for the 1500 tanks to sell?
    I can't find them anywhere.

    Not exactly what you asked, but related: I want to try developing 110 in a Paterson tank. I just took one of the plastic spools and did some DIY, so it will (ehh... should!) now fit 110 film. I've yet to try it, but I guess it will work.

    So, that might be an alternative for you.

    I've used my ancient Johnson tank, which does various film sizes from 16mm upwards. These are quite common on ePay.

    I used to have a stainless reel for 110. It had a spiral only on one side.

    Its possible that my Patterson tanks/reels go down to 110, but I haven't checked them first.
    The thing is that I will most probably mostly or only do color in 110, so I would really appreciate the functions of the Jobo to process C-41.
