Over the past few months I have dove into the 8x10 format. After reading every post and comment imaginable I decided to get a Jobo drum to use on a besseler motor base to process my film. So here is the problem. I am having parts of the film not getting chemicals to it so part of the film is left pink and undeveloped. I am loading the film with the base to the outside and it has happened with and without presoak. I am using a bent funnel to pour in the chemicals. I am using d76 with Hp5. I have gone through the process of loading film doing a test shot on the porch souping the film and it has happened every time. I have called Jobo and talked to a gentleman there but he basically said I need to get a cpa, etc. That the tank is not meant to be used on anything but Jobo stuff. Needless to say, that was not much of a help. Thanks in advance for any input.
