    Daniel.
    First the ones on the site say specifically 35mm only? Or I remember reading that.

    Secondly I don't seem to understand what "for spirals" means... Aren't all developing spools spirals? Am I missing something?

    They're for transferring exposed film from the cartridge to the spiral, i.e. they are spiral loaders. They are not bulk loaders for transferring unexposed film from the bulk spool into the cartridge.

    You can see in that picture several sizes - note the widths of the film tracks (the flat bit of metal) and the diameters of the little cartridge-holding sections.

    Thanks, I was confused before, haha got it now, and yay! Can't wait to find out the prices... I'm now inspired again about 70mm

    Thank you for correcting me (post #8)!
    I never saw these before and thought they were intended for darkroom spooling bulk film onto cartridge reels.

    Found this: developing 70mm in unmodified Paterson. Shorter lengths, obviously. I just tried the exact same arrangement on a couple of Jobo 25xx spirals and the gap between them is... 70mm.

    So at least I know I can shoot & soup 220 lengths without a special tank.

    I thought I had mentioned that 116 spools would fit 70mm?

    Well glad you found a video that's neat

    Neither Paterson nor Jobo refer to type116/70mm for their current reels. So that trick above adds to their compatibility.

    Oh man I fail...

    If you hadn't said that I wouldn't have gone back wondering what you meant and watched the video again... Or rather THROUGH... I had only watched the beginning, skipped to the middle, and realized he had reversed that end which I hadn't seen the first time...

    I actually tried this without the second side at the bottom and it failed so I gave up on that haha I was so close!

    Anyway I actually found a 116 reel that is self loading, I had already bought one 116 tank that sucked and would load from center but it was plastic so it was a pain staying in the track. Then found a self loading one.

    I'm keeping the other one though bedside it's adjustable and I can do 110 in it I think.. At least I can do advantix for sure.. Though I'm sure it will be a PITA lol

    Thanks polyglot

    Had a reply from Jobo on 70mm x 5m

    "Dear Daniel,
    thank you for your mail.
    In the moment we did not have this spiral but it could be in 6 or 9 month.
    We have some customer wich asking this spiral.
    My be ask in some time again."

    Sounds interesting.
