    Hi Morgan,

    I've got to tell you that your processor works great!!!

    For the first time since I took up 4x5 photography, I'm able to get even development.

    Best regards,

    Dave Held

    I am used to using 500 mL for ten sheets in an Expert drum, but that is for color only. I process b/w using other methods. This insert for the Patterson tanks really is not all that bad on chemistry. I use at least 250 mL just to process a single sheet in a tray, or 2 whole liters when doing a batch of 8-10 in a deep tank, so it is better than either of these options. The six sheets equal 1.5x80 sq-in, which is not far out of line for that volume of chemistry. While there are better options (such as the SS Nikkor that is as efficient as my Jobo tank), I don't think this is a bad one.

    Dear All,

    I have a day off tomorrow, as i travel to Paris for the final stages of the SS11 fashion shows, if you have any questions about my processors let me know, and I'll answer them.

    Cheers,

    Morgan.

    Go for the Nikor tank offered on the first page. They are first class and cost a small fortune new. Maybe $300 in 1960 money.

    36 oz chemicals. Prefill the tank and drop the loaded reel in in the dark. pull up and rotate, reimmerse. Do this 4 times in the first minute. Than cap and use a regular daylight tank.

    OK, I'm interested in how well it might hold the film used in a rotary processor like a Phototherm. There is an issue of the film edge pulling out. (I realize you probably don't have access to a Phototherm to test this.) I can see that adding a small piece at the top and bottom corners of the sheets to provide more rigidity so the dynamic fluid pressure doesn't pull the film out might help.

    And I'm interested in 5x7. Any concrete plans. I saw you mentioned it, but it takes effort to work out the details. A couple of 5x7 sheets in the same space so that it fits into the same tank would be pretty awesome in my mind.

    Good things happen!

    I was given a Jobo 2551 tank today. I have some acrylic sheet tucked away and think I might fashion something to fit the tank in a similar style for my 4x5's and see how it goes . . .

    It's easier to get a Jobo 5x4 reel for a Jobo tank, they sell for lowish prices and hold 6 sheets each. Morgan's reels are for Paterson tanks which have a narrower diameter.

    Yep, I will undoubtedly get one of those for the tank - and I just thought it might be fun to customise something for the jobo tank and give it a try. Nothing lost but a little time

    Cheers
