can this fit jobo tank 2?
Asked by: chang
No, steel reels and jobo tanks do not work together. You would need a steel tank for this.

Hi, I've read in a forum that this reel is compatible with Paterson tanks. Is that the case? Thanks!
Asked by: Michael
No - you would need to use the Paterson reels. The Paterson tanks and reels are made work together with the tube used to rinse film and the Paterson reels are inserted over a plastic tube/cylinder for this purpose. I have found the SS reels to be easier to load and when used with SS tanks give more even and consistent results. In addition, the Paterson reels over time become clogged with residue and will eventually jam unless cleaned thoroughly and dried. SS reels have no issues.
