    Concerning processing, Jobo is still producing their tanks new. I always use the Multitank 2 (2520) with the sheetfilm reel. Works great both in the Jobo machines and when handprocessing.
    Lots of second hand Jobo stuff I've seen being sold for near new prices, so don't dismiss buying new from them, if not to support them.

    I just write the aperture & shutter speed on some small labels. I also use colour dots on each holder to indicate which type of film is loaded unless I'm going out with a single type.

    I unexpectedly find myself a large format shooter and need processing advice

    I have the Epson V600 and routinely scan 4x5 on it. You just have to scan one half of the neg, then move it over and scan the other half, and then use Photoshop's File > Automate > Photomerge command to combine them. Works like a charm!

    I use BTZS tubes for 4x5 processing; they are easy and efficient. Chemical usage is 2-6 oz. of solution, depending on your agitation method. I use 6 oz. total solution, with D-76 at 1:3, so this is 1.5 oz. of stock solution. Pretty economical. I use semi-stand development for agitation.

    The tubes are relatively inexpensive, less than $200 for a set. You can process one film at a time if desired, or up to 5 at a time.

    The tubes can also be home made using black plumbing pipe. I have not done this, but it seems easy enough.

    Yeah I'm pretty much hooked already.

    @chassis I think I'll probably try something like what you describe. Because I happen to have a roller unit with various size drums I'm going to figure out a way to get some film holders in there. I was thinking plumbing pipe of some sort.

    In the meantime I'll process in trays and, f I don't end up with something that works, I'm leaning towards buying a Jobo multi-tank with 4x5 reels.

    It's a sickness. I don't really want to recover from it, though, unlike the stomach thing I've been dealing with since last night. Got the bug, though, to test out a new lens with a shot of my 10 year old Doc Martens. They're getting replaced by some new Made In England ones next year, but I may have them resoled anyway just because.

    Shot is drying now.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    I made two contact prints tonight and they are sooooo nice... nicer than my medium format enlargements.

    Next question will be to find out how this camera fares in the extreme cold.

    I am hopeful that I can fumble my way through loading and actually shooting this camera. I think I'll just try processing in my 8x10 printing trays for now, but I'm looking for suggestions for film processing?

    Other than trays I also have various Cibachrome/Unicolor/Jobo drums and tanks in various sizes and configurations along with some kind of agitator system that I believe were used for color printing. Could I use that for sheet film?

    Otherwise I'd like to know what people would suggest for a simple, efficient way to process black and white 4x5 film at home. If I do any color I'll send it to the lab.

    That's just, like, my opinion, man...

    And if you know someone doing some heavy arc duty welding, the BTZ tubes look a lot like the watertight tubes used to store arc welding rod on job sites.

    They doing any pipeline welding in your area?
