A poor substitute for a Jobo 3006/3010...

Andrew,

It is a holder that takes 6 sheets of 4x5 for processing in a Patterson tank.

I understand that there is a new model which has a more secure system of holding the sheets during agitation.

I had two of the original Mod54s and have happily just sold them. Convenient as the smaller Paterson tank might be with its smaller bulk and less weighty fluids I find I prefer my Jobo 2509N reels. When I had a Jobo ALL I used to use the Expert drums but I did not particularly like the constant agitation. Almost entirely dedicated now to Diafine, I actually only seek extremely minimal agitation.
