Default Negative Drying Cabinet

The interior walls are glassy smooth, coated "shower liner" hardboard.
The doors are 4mm acrylic "plexi" with magnetic catches.
The rods are the same copper clad steel in my print drying rack.
The rods can be repositioned for 120/220 roll, 4x5, 5x7, and/or 8x20 film.
For roll film, I punch a 4mm hole in the leader and hang directly on a rod.
The clips are the same chrome plated clips as on the print rack.
The clips also serve as bottom weights on 35mm & roll films.
On the floor is a small under-the-desk fanless "foot warmer" heating pad.
A full load of 20 or 30 rolls of 120 film will dry curl-free overnight.

Hi Terry- having paid more attention to what Reinhold actually wrote, I think they're 8x20.
Compare them to the 120 hanging above- roughly 4 times as wide? So, about 8 inches, and he mentions having space for 8x20. The other 'popular' size for a banquet camera is 7x17, but I'm guessing he doesn't have both on hand.
Of course, you never know . . .

You chaps are right on target, they're 8x20 negatives.
Compare the size of the negatives in the dryer with the darkslide I'm holding in this photo:
