The tubes are relatively inexpensive, less than $200 for a set. You can process one film at a time if desired, or up to 5 at a time.

The tubes can also be home made using black plumbing pipe. I have not done this, but it seems easy enough.
And if you know someone doing some heavy arc duty welding, the BTZ tubes look a lot like the watertight tubes used to store arc welding rod on job sites.

They doing any pipeline welding in your area?
