Thanks sully, I have an offer for a couple of Cibachrome drums but Dan said they don't have ridges inside, and Ian said he would sell me a 8X10 drum for $10 so I think I am set, if the drums from Dan wont work I should be able to use the motor with the drum from Ian.

Does anyone have any experience using the Cibachrome drums for negatives? Will the negs not turn out right if there are no ridges? Do the negs go emulsion side towards the center so the chemicals can get on the surface? Do the ridges have anything to do with the chemicals getting to the neg or just for ease of removal when they are done?

Sorry for the many questions, I may post to the other forums with this...
