I remember starting out my B&W processing many years ago, with an old Kodak "lasagne" style apron and developing tank. It didn't have it's lid, but the Kodak film container lids fitted perfectly (grey style). Processed hundreds of rolls this way, before I finally found a Patterson tank that was a good price and not damaged. Could be a novel way to process in a bucket. . . . . .
I actually wish I hadn't got rid of it, because it was an extremely quick and easy way to load film for processing and I haven't actually seen one around since.
