Couldn't find anything via search. I found some Tech Pan in a loader I've had since 1983. Thought I would give it a try. I found some Technidol, but it makes only 8 oz. I traditionally use Paterson tanks and reels and they take 10 oz. for a single reel.

I have an old Brooks tank. I've tried loading some scrap film on it, just can't seem to get the hang of it. The reel has two small hooks at the core. Any tips on loading these reels would be much appreciated.

Since the film is so old and who knows what the outcome would be after development, I considered using the Technidol but making 10 oz. and just extending the development time by say 25% and using the Paterson. Would that make sense?
