    I need a film dryer. I'd be willing to pick up in New England or if it's one of the compact Durst or Jobo types one that can be shipped. I need to dry small to medium quantities of 35mm, 120, and LF film.

    A Kleen-Dri is very nice, but won't do LF.

    What an interesting little unit... Do you know how many Patterson reels one could dry at a time?

    Sorry but it only takes SS reels, 2 of them.

    Apparently there are some Kleen-Dri driers that are sized for the Paterson reels - somewhere here on Photrio/APUG I learned that fact after assuming that the one I had was the only size.

    I have a couple of the Kleen-Dri units that will do plastic reel size. They'll do 2 35mm or 1 120 size at a time. you can cram a 4x5 neg in also.

    I have also made a dryer that worked just as well from a 15" section of 4" diameter PVC pipe with an vent fan taped to one end with a filter at the very end to filter the air coming in. The whole thing cost about 20.00 and took about 30 minutes to build.

    I had a nice Marrut for sale a year ago but, nobody wanted it; to the landfill it went, but, it's easy enough to build your own from a cheap wardrobe
