    Hi Group,

    Can you use Jobo reels (for 35mm and 120 film) in Paterson tanks?

    Both Paterson and Jobo have a "system". To get a light proof seal in either
    system you must use the appropriate tank, lid and core. The core diameter
    of Jobo and Paterson "systems" is different so unless you could fabricate a
    core to fit Jobo reels that would also fit a Paterson-type tank and lid the
    answer is no.

    Note that the Phototherm processors use Paterson reels but recently
    introduced new cores that fit Jobo reels.
