    How do you use them?

    I haven't seen any pictures so I'm curious as to how you would use these things. You'd obviously have to load the tubes in the dark, but wouldn't you have to put the developer in them in the dark too? Seems like a logistical problem, and then what about stop, fix, etc? Anyone care to share their techniques? Thanks!

    The film is loaded in the dark into the tube. The screw-on cap is off to the side with the dev. already in it. The tube containing the sheet of film is screwed onto the cap with dev. The tube is then put into the water and developing is commenced. I have an extra cap off to the side in which I have the stop bath in. After dev. time is up lights go off to simply unscrew tube and screw on cap with stop bath. Ditto for fix. It is darn near seamless. Sometimes I get lazy and don't even use a stop and go straight to fix from dev. J and C will have these available with an extra cap in the next two weeks.

    That makes sense...

    Aha, so the extra cap is the key then. That makes much more sense. I was trying to imagine dumping, filling, and screwing the cap in the dark fast enough to not effect the processing times. So the fiberglass screen material is so the solutions get to the back of the film, right?

    Nope, these tubes have ridges inside so that the developer also wets the outside of the film. I am telling you these are great!

    Since J&C will be carrying these, we should support our sponsor and order from them.

    Mike has informed me that the tubes are in the mail to us. They should be available for shipment next week. They are on the web site now.

    In a private email Mike mentioned that the tubes are available in 30" length. Is this correct?

    That is not what is being shipped to us at the moment. I will have to talk to Mike about it as this is the first I've heard.

    Sandy,
    The tubes are available from the manufacturer in the longer length. There is a substantial minimum order and if there are enough people to purchase them we can arrange that. I believe there would be a minimum of 48. I can check when I get back home if you want.
