    Cibachrome Mark II

    I have come into possession of an ilford cibachrome drum that seems made to process two sheets of 8x10.

    It seems fairly intuive when it comes to pouring chemicals into the drum, however, I have no idea how to dispose of the used solution! Is there a particular way i'm supposed to tilt it so that it flows out?

    I'd really rather not have to turn off the lights to take off the cap and all that; that would defeat the point of daylight processing.

    If this is like my tubes:

    1) when you pour the chemicals in, the tube is standing on its end, and the chemicals actually go into a cup inside, rather than the main body of the tube;
    2) when you tip the tube on it's side, the chemicals go from the cup to the main body of the tube, where they do their work;
    3) when you are finished with the particular step in the process, you tip the tube up again, and the chemicals pour out through holes in the end cap that is at the opposite end from where you poured them in.

    There's no cup inside, or rather, it's an upside down cup, bottoms up in the tube.

    This is one of those things that is a lot easier to do in person, as compared to on the internet ...

    When you stand the tube on it's end to put the chemicals in, is there a receptacle that you pour into which is part of the cap, and behind that cap is there a cup with an opening facing up, and clipped into the cap?

    The other end of the tube should have a different cap, without a receptacle for pouring into, and no cup behind it.

    See the illustration in figure 2 in this article:

    Thanks for the link. It seems that I'm missing the cup that is bellow the funnel to catch the initial solution.
