    Steve, it 's because PET films are harder to clip and to cut. (That's according to the Lab-Box user manual, not my experience.)

    I would much prefer to use an ordinary centre feed stainless steel tank and a changing bag = less cost and less faffing about.

    Good grief, I should have realised that, had the same problem with Rollei and a Rondinax. Thought for a while it was just that the Rondinax was past its prime.

    Haven't tried mine yet - anyone know which films are PET-based? I think I have some PanF to develop in 120...

    My Rollei film is still firmly in the fridge. PanF turns out to be acetate. I might just... I mean, how can I not try that?

    I too have one of those, However the correx film blanket is now very fragile and I am sure not usable. I also have the instructions that came with it.
