Hi Ed
I have always used a black 3 gallon bucket with a lid, works great for sloppy 
16mm hand processing , lots of artifacts!

Have fun

There are a bunch of Russian LOMO 16mm tanks on ebay right now starting at 
around $100. I think they are designed to hold two lengths of 15m or about 50 
feet at a time when developing so you then have to splice the two parts 
together of a 100' spool after processing for projection. These are probably 
your best bet. Once in a blue moon you will also see the large steel 100 foot 
slot type developing reels for sale from the 1940s. These work well too but you 
have to always remember to insert the unprocessed film emulsion side out.

Subject: [Frameworks] Developing Tanks for 16mm

Hi Frameworkers,

I'm looking for some advice of developing tanks for 16mm film. I've processed 
quite a bit of S8mm rolls using a 2x120 tank and liked the hand-processing 
artifacts to clean processing ratio, but thinking 100' of 16mm would be too 
much for this sized tank.

Does anyone have a recommendation?

I'm thinking of the 3x120 version made by Paterson:


The 5x120 version also by Paterson (too much?):

Thanks in advance!
