    Drum for Beseler

    I just won a Beseler Motor Base on 'bay. I have seen most drums are for plastic reels and I would rather use my SS ones (120 & 135). I only plan to use it for film.

    Any suggestions? DIY is not out of the question....

    Have a "good" stainless steel tank. I have one of four that doesn't leak when on its side.

    The tank I have is a 2x35 or 1x120. Is that going to be big enough for the rollers?

    I put my stainless steel tanks inside an open-ended Cibachrome print tube, then put the two together on the motor base. Once you fine tune keeping it level it works great.

    The Cibachrome tubes are smooth inside.

    Hijack Warning!

    I have two Cibachrome tubes.

    How many of you have Cibachrome tubes?
    How many Cibachrome tubes do you have?

    What idiot marketing person would change the name of Cibachrome (to something else, like Ilfochrome), knowing that everyone in the universe knows what a Cibachrome is?

    My stainless steel tank holds three 120 reels and is long enough to work.
