Thanks for the various replies so far. I do intend to start developing several rolls I shot just for the purpose of going through the process of development. I bought Hewes reels for 35mm and 120 film along with a stainless Adorama tank and lots of other bits.
This forum has been really helpful so far from a pure reference perspective. I have read a lot of old threads that were really useful.
I agree with the sentiment that it is time to start developing my test rolls. I will post my results and some scanned negatives for anyone to critique.
