    Everyone has answered with suggestions for roll film reels, but are you looking for sheet film options? If so, the only real alternative that still uses the Jobo tanks is to place two sheets between the ribs like 4x5 prints, then plug the funnel with a black rubber stopper to keep it light tight.

    If you have a 2800 series tank, you can put the film around the perimeter of the tank without a reel.

    thanks for all the replies guys! but i was particularly looking for sheet film options...I guess i should have made that clear. Anyways, i guess i'll just stick with tank processing until i can find a reel for a good price.
    Thanks guys!

    The reels are nice, I have couple that I got for a good price, but I don't bother with the loader. I can get them loaded just fine without it. Until I got the reels, I used the method I photographed above. I still use that method for my 8x10 film with excellent results.

    I think ebay may be the last. I happen to find a couple new ones at my local store on a dusty bottom shelf hidden behind other things.

    Or just use a Print Drum lid instead of the funnel lid...

    A German shop, www.monochrom.com, has the Hewes reels for Jobo 1500 in their catalogue. Both reels for 35 mm (42 Euros) and 120 film (46 Euros) are available.

    This is great news that reels are still available. Does this mean Hewes can still make them even though Jobo is doa ?
