    Re: Can this be true ? Jobo rises again ?

    Hey Bob,

    I have a later serial number CPP and it turns Expert drums fine. I do however assist the lift manually and don't rely on the lift handle (which imo, is a very weak linkage) alone. There was someone on a forum, maybe here, who made a handle that fit under the drums to help in the lift, think he may have sold them on Ebay as well. I suppose someone who had the wherewithall could probably make a beefed up lift mechanism but slipping a hand under the lift bed is not a big deal to do.

    looking at the unit ,the handle really looks like a weak link.. An Expert drum full of chemistry is fairly heavy.

    I would be interested in hearing what Greg Blank has to say about this.

    I wonder how bloated the price will be?

    I think I'll keep my beater CPP-2.

    Nice to hear that a new CPP-2/3 is in the works! I use a late model CPP-2 with 3005 and 3010 drums. The lift arm is really a weak point with the 3000 drums. I always lift the drum with right hand as I raise the lift with my left hand.

    Anyone have a brochure or spec page they can post here?

    Thanks

    We're extremely flattered by all the amazing interest in the new processor. We can confirm that following a production meeting at the factory in Germany last week that the project to buid a new film and print processor is very much on the cards. We are measuring interest and the final decision to go ahead with the project will be made at the end of the month. Anyone interested can register at info@firstcall-photographic.co.uk

    Whilst replying to this forum other members have asked us about Expert sheet film drums from Jobo. These are very much still available and we include a picture of Rita who puts them all together at the factory.

    Re: Can this be true ? Jobo rises again ?

    While I am happy to hear that production will be restarted, I too am concerned about the lift mechanism. It is fine with small tanks but while using the Expert drums I fear for its life.

    A stronger lift should not be difficult to accomplish - perhaps automated as well so as to take that lifting up/down function away from less than careful users.

    ...and thank you for responding in this forum; I for one, really appreciate it.

    There's no problem lifting the 3010 expert drum by the handle alone on my CPA-2 - I just don't crank it back but lift gently. The problem comes when lifting the 3063 drum: it's necessary to "assist" the crank with the other hand helping to lift the drum.
