    I fold a paper towel over the sponge and dry the cylinders that way. Keeps the sponge clean too, because all the black residue goes on the paper towel.

    Re: Question about JOBO expert drums

    I tired once got the first sheet out on the dry side,and in the water on the wet side, then got water on my hand back on the dry side of the room on the holder and got the sheet out but sticky wet fingers bothered me, had to feel the drum to find the empty chamber and got the other hand wet and things went downhill after that dripping water back and forth.
    The trick (and I think it is in the instructions, too), is to leave an inch or so of film above the lip of the chamber until one is done loading -- then shove them all down before putting on the lid...

    edited...but that is with a dry drum...don't know if I would like doing it on a water-filled drum (partially wet neg for too long.)

    Been doing this leave the film slightly above the cylinder during the loading process for decades. First few times using these Jobo drums, did not leave the film edge out of the cylinder, caused much grief trying to figure out if a given cylinder is loaded with film or not. Not a problem at all with completely dry cylinder & drum.
