    Yeah a sulfite bath often clears things up. Good to hear you resolved the issue!

    Would lining the drum with fiberglass screen help?
    May tomorrow be a better day.

    Since the film is held by the ridges on the inside face of the drum, it would be a very delicate job of making sure they remained untouched. I'd also be worried about scratching the back of the film.

    Fiberglass can be abrasive. This risk scratching the film base or emulsion side. If the glass fibers used to make fiberglass floats off the material, there is further risk of film damage and other related damage.

    I wonder if the union where the tanks join is causing this problem ? Is it all sheets or just a few, and what's the orientation of the sheets in the drum ?
    notch codes ? I only use one film...

    Or, just do 4 sheets at a time and load the film into a tank filled with water to start.

    I've used plastic coated window screen in a Jobo just drum with no problems.
    May tomorrow be a better day.
