Hi Tony.
What tank will these fit in? I have Paterson and Jobo tanks, and their spirals are incompatibe. I hate loading 135 into plastic reels, so wouldn't mind trying steel ones if I had a tank to suit.
Cheers,
Colin

I have a couple of old(ish) plastic tanks made under the name of Durst. They take 35mm stainless spirals without a problem. I don't use 120 Durst spirals so cannot advise there.

Actually the Durst tank which I have had for over 20-30 years have been the only ones that do not leak when inverted. Even JOBO ones are not that watertight!

SS tanks on their own are not that expensive, it is the spirals that...... errrr.....make the cost spiral!!! The spirals on offer here sound like a bargain.

My recollection of using Jobo and Paterson tanks for 120 and 35mm is that the central core that the spirals fit onto are part of the light trap for the tank. Stainless steel spirals do not fit on the central core- even if they did the light trap would be compromised.
If you are going to invest in stainless steel reels I would suggest that you go for Hewes - they are so easy to load.

Colin - If you need tanks after all, get an 8oz and a 16oz for 35mm and 120 respectively.

Beware mixing brands of s/steel spirals. I have a selection going back to the 1960s. Kindermann, Nikor and Hewes 120 spirals have different means of retaining the film at the centre, so I feel for the end of the wire on the outermost coil, then feel for the clip, then start loading.
The 35mm spiral designs seem more consistent.
The tanks, if you can find them, hold their value well. But be careful - the plastic lids and caps are not interchangeable and are irreplaceable. Go for the biggest size - even a four x 120 tank can be used with a single 35mm spiral because it is heavy enough to sink to the bottom after agitation by inversion.
