    I have an old FR daylight tank you can have for free. It holds 12 sheets in an adjustable rack.

    Thanks all.
    No negative feedback on the Jobo so that's good. I know it take quite a large amount of chemical if I do inversions but if I process 6 sheets that's not too bad.
    Eventually I will get an automated system.

    Rick A, thank you for the offer but I like to stay with the Jobo for the future expansion to automated system.

    inversion with 2523 tank takes 1.25L, not bad at all if you use anything beyond 1+1.
    if you use stock, it might be a bit wasteful, but the results you will get will overcome that with ease.

    Very good. Thank you!

    It reminds me of this device / system I saw recently when it was pointed out on eBay:

    I have used both the tank with spiral reel for inversion, and the Expert Drum for 4x5. Both work ok, but the Expert Drum is by far the easiest. It is a lot more expensive, however, and the drums are getting harder to find.

    You can also use an old Bessler or Unicolor color print drum , both have sections for 5X7. You can do 2 5X7 without modification but if you divide the 5X7 by 2 with a little silicon goop you can do up to 4. Uses very little chem. You can roll by hand or get a motor base. I usally shoot 20 or more sheets at a time so I use hard tanks and hangers, but if shoot just few I will dig out my Bessler drum.

    Personal i really like the Jobo system, but dont forget the Nova Combiplan 4x5 tank, it takes six sheets and holds 1 liter of solution. I just got a daylight processor (ANFP-D54) from a pro lab that are closing, I have done some E6 in it and the result is perfect, but you can use the tank by itself.

    One of the best investments I made for my darkroom was spending $225 for a 3010 Expert Drum and another $25 on a hand roller base. The setup had nearly paid for itself by the end of a 50-sheet box of C-41 film, by eliminating $4 per sheet lab fees. And all my classmates used it as well. I highly recommend these, especially if shooting color.
