I don't think film processing in a roller transport machine is that great an idea, one bit of crud on a roller and you can get a train track on your film.
If one uses undercut rollers, contact could be limited to the rebates. Though one still would have to use full contact rollers for sqeezing at the end of each processing stage. (Well, one could use air knives...)
Agx, air knives do work, but something like that would make the unit bigger. As for undercut rollers, yep they do work, but heaven help you if you put a roll in slightly off centre, don't ask how I know
eff eighty pee, you have me intrigued, as well as many others with that information. Looking forward to seeing or hearing about this in the future.
Looks like we need someone over in Germany to go to the factory and see what a container full of these would cost us. Maybe then we could get the price down to something reasonable. Looks like a Thermaphot FCP 41 is just what the doctor ordered.
Honestly, how much more film would you blow through if you could simply process it with one of those?
To my understanding Thermaphot stopped years ago manufacturing af ALL their processors. Currently they offer repair of those units manufactured at them as well as off stock sale of their paper processors.
