Old style still my preference

I works. It does not leak. I much prefer this to the plastic tanks and reels mostly because it is what I learned on. I sometimes do stand development and a stainless steel tank is infinitely preferable in that case where it is placed in a water bath for an hour to maintain a constant temperature. This along with a Hewes reel will last a lifetime.

Tank is well made. If ind the light baffle on the lid a bit wobbly. There is no light leak but you need to be careful when handling the inside of the lid.

I have the 35mm and 120mm version of these tanks and they leak. I'm very careful when I invert and make sure I don't press on the lid, but they still leak. Whether the chemicals are at 68 degrees, or 105 degrees, I still lose about 5mls.

I use this tank for single film roll developing and I must say that it is great. The light-tight cap for pouring in your chemicals is easy to snap off, unlike others where you either have no grip or are very difficult to pull off. It is durable should it fall or bang on something and a breeze to clean. I would have liked if it worked with my plastic reels as well but it does not fit those.

Perfect for small batches

Perfect for small volume - either 1/2 pint or 1/4 liter of solution needed for each 35mm roll. I've used this for both B&W (70F/20C) and E6 (100F/38C) development without issue.

Does it include reel?

No, it does not include a reel I would highly recommend the Hewes stainless steel reels. They are more expensive, but most of the others on the market are only a half-step above junk.

How much chemistry do you use? At this small level is the chemistry strong enough to develop the film?
Asked by: Douglas
Use 300 ml of chemistry in this tank. This is pretty much standard for 35 mm film tanks like the Patterson, and others. Rodinal at 1+50, HC-110 at 1:31, DD-X at 1+4, all work well in this tank at 300 ml. I would recommend the Hewes reel as some of the other stainless reels are cheaply made and not very good.
