    Any use for a Polaroid Clearing Tank for the 4x5 films?

    I got this in with a bunch of other stuff, and hate to throw it in the trash in case anyone still has some Type 55 they shoot. This one is still new, even has the chemicals in their packets. The auction site turns up no results at all, so I have no idea if people would still use this anymore or not.

    Could be useful for occasional intensification or reduction of 5x4 negatives, or one off processing of a single sheet of film

    I have one around here somewhere - buried in a box. I was thinking of adding a water feed tube at the bottom to convert to a washing tub.

    I have a box and a half of type 55 and would love to have it. What do you need for it? Bill Barber

    I have some 55 and I'd be interested too. I know the couple I've seen on that auction site have gone for astonishing amounts of money, considering... but so too does the remaining 55 film, so go figure. For now I just use my Nikor 4x5 tank and one sheet at a time dunked in it without the reel.

    It is perfect for the Photo-Flo final rinse of normal 4x5 negatives. 2 liters of water will cover the negatives. I use mine everytime I develop film.
