    Dipping cage for reels

    I'm going back to replenished Xtol - never should have left. I use the hard rubber Kodak tanks with floating lids and have a thing I had made up - two stainless rods that each hold three Jobo reels. I have read that Hewes makes a cage that holds reels and that seems a bit more suited to the job. Are they still made? For that matter, is Hewes still in business?
    Thanks,

    Welcome to Apug, come and stay a long time. We have a Pennsy Photo group that you may wish to join, hopefully we get many people from around the state and can arrange meet-ups.

    What size reels are you using? What size tank? I've got a couple of reel cages for 8x10 tanks that hold 35 or 120 reels.

    Thanks for the link, Matt. I didn't know Hewes manufactured all of those tanks, hangers, cages, clips and other goodies. If the rest is as high quality as their reels, then its definitely worth looking into...

    You can order most of that large tank stuff, including cages via B&H in nyc. Though it's special order, so takes a few weeks to drop ship.

    Or hunt around online. I just picked up a second cage for a 3.5 gallon tank online. People are happy to get rid of them usually.
