    Quick question about inversion techniques for these.
    I'm using the 5 reel paterson tank, and am using ilfords recommended inversion technique, which is 30 seconds continuous, then 10 seconds every minute. With a small tank, I get about 4-5 inversions in those 10 seconds, but I feel with the large tank, 4-5 inversions may be a bit hectic, and the film is coming loose, and "sticking" to other sheets.
    They did seem to develop fine though, so it may have been during fixing or stop bath that I was a tad more vigorous.

    What inversion techniques do you lot use ?

    Though I'll add a little update.

    I had another go in the 5 reel tank, and again I was noticing some sheets coming loose and sticking together. Then I got to thinking, given I'm using a 1.5 liter tank, and only 1 liter of liquid, the water is a lot more turbulent during agitation, not to mention the giant air bubble moving through the system during inversion (you can really hear it). So for my final rinse stage, I filled the tank with water, inverted it 20 times, and viola ! The sheets were completely in place !

    I want to verify these results, but if they hold, perhaps someone may want to trade a 3 reel tank for a totally awesome 5 reel tank ???

    I'm getting the itch to buy one of these myself... but there aren't any on eBay at the moment.

    I'm pretty sure 2 sets would fit in a Paterson 5 making 10 sheets at a time.

    I don't think so.
    If it needs a 3 reel tank, you need a 6 reel tank to stack two... An with 2 liter of chemistry, you'll save on the gym club...

    I routinely do 4x120 and yes I save on the gym.

    The procesor holds 6 though right, so it'd be 12 sheets?
