    Thanks for the explanation, Jim. In a normal tank most will use inversion agitation. If you don't put the lid on the can I presume that swirling the dev in the can while open and upright achieves the same effect.

    Certainly for a clip test your "trick" uses a lot less dev.

    I used to make rockets when I was younger. These days I aimlessly juggle with them

    I mostly use them for storing small sewing stuff, beads, and for keeping craft paint from drying out. If you have leftover paint and put it in a film canister usually it stays fresher and doesn't dry out as quickly. Also I have several in my purse for change, for pills, whatever.

    I put the cap on and slowly roll the cannister on a table top. It takes only a tiny fraction of an ounce of developer which is then disgarded.

    Thanks, Jim. This is in danger of becoming a separate thread but I have another question if I may. It suddenly struck me that the very economical way it uses dev then raises the issue of whether a few ccs of dev will be enough. For instance if the dev of choice is Xtol as it is in my case then Kodak recommends at least 100ml of stock. However this is for a full 36 frame 35mm so would I be right in assuming that the can will hold enough dev to do 3.5 inches of film.

    This is about 3 frames so a 1/12th of a full film so 8-10 cc's should be enough and if so then the can will easily hold enough.

    Is my logic correct?

    Thanks

    Your logic sounds good to me. You might want to check with a bit of old film to make sure that 8-10cc will consistantly wet the entire film.

    The clear Fuji 35mm canisters I use for fly fishing patterns. It gets confusing though when I'm looking for film while out fishing....

    i usually have a sea of this stuff -
    a few times a year, when i can't see the floor anymore,
    i take a shovel and scoop it all up and dump it in the trash.

    using the canisters for solargraphs and rockets sounds fun ...
    silver magnets, trickle tanks sold
    artwork often times sold for charity
    PM me for details

    Today I used an all black Ilford film canister to make a loupe skirt for a mamiya sekor sx 55mm 1.4 I had lying around. Measured for focusing distance, cut, and sanded smooth, it fits over the rear element snugly. Now Ive got a pretty awesome loupe that rests flat on my light box. Though the 55mm focal length doesnt cover the entire frame, and is about 5-6x magnification, its totally distortionless edge to edge, and bright!. I had it side to side with my 8x agfa loupe, what a difference!
