Default Jobo, is there still a demand?

I have a Jobo processor and equipment that I was given but don't use. I gave my word that I wouldn't sell it on ebay but feel may be I could swap it for some thing with a photographer that wants one? But does anyone still use it?

I think you'll find many people do use them.
Why not make a list of what you want to swap, as well as what you're looking for, and post an ad.

I have a Jobo CPA2 with the lift accessory, although I normally use a Paterson tank if I only have one or two films to process.
The Jobo is very convenient when I need to process several films at a time.
Yes, I do think that there is still a market for affordable rotary-film processors.

I have a Jobo for colour work which I find invaluable, I wish someone had given me one though I did get a new one at a great price.

Just have a look on e-bay for the answer. All Jobo equipment has shot up in price in the last say 6 months including processors. So clearly demand is outstripping supply.

Jobo tanks, reels thermometers etc have risen a lot but non Jobo stuff less so. As Jobo tanks are really no better than several other makes EXCEPT for use on a processor then I have concluded that the demand for the processors is to a large extent the driver.

We may have already passed the stage where the supply of most if not all analogue equipment outstripped demand and it may well be the other way round now.

I use a CPE2 for C41 and colour printing and will try it for E6, only baught mine this year, for a very good price and wonder why I waited so long, it certainly made colour printing easier, now I can easily produce bin fodder.

Huge demand, enough that some folks have been wondering about the feasibility of developing and bringing to market something similar. If mine died tomorrow I'd replace it even though I'd have to pay dearly.
