    Hi, I have been looking in on this forum for sometime now. It is very active, which impressed me very much, as a lot of forums sometimes are very slow.
    Anyway, i decided about time i joined this wonderful community.

    I live in the UK, i am retired and i am 63 years old. I have been interested in photography since the 1960's, when i went to art college.

    I have always preferred using film, rather than digital, i have a Mamiya RZ 67 pro11, Three Mamiya C330f , Canon EOS 1n , Canon 7D.

    Most of my photography now, is of / with my Grandchildren.

    I have just bought two Agfa Rondinax daylight developing tanks, one for 35mm and one for 120 film. I have not been able to develop my own films for years, as i had an accident at work and lost my right arm, so it was then impossible to load film into the spiral as that needs two hands, but now i have the Agfa tanks, makes life easier.:smile:

    Hi! I also went to college for art (BA art history), and have been developing my own photographic vision since 1966--I'm 67, I also have Mamiya TLR and a RB, but use mostly 35mm. A big welcome!

    Welcome!

    Check the rubber gasket on the spindle before use. Most probably you will find a modern Jobo tank more useful.

    Welcome to APUG, Sir, from the far western edge of Canada (the part that does not suffer long, dark and cold and snowy winters).
