      My two arrived (in Scotland) Tuesday 23rd. All OK. At first glance they look good, certainly better made than most of the plastic (35mm, 127, 120 & 5x4) tanks that I've used over the past 50 or so years. Now just need to finish building the new darkroom so I can try them.

      Well worth backing, & I look forward to your next Kickstarter project. (I would like an 8x10 / Wholeplate / 5x7 version of the dev tank).

      My two arrived today. All OK. Just a note for any others having tin mailboxes on the street which are subject to extreme internal temps (Deep South) of maybe 150F or more. The first few minutes after opening the manila envelope were a bit scary because it looked like the O ring wasn't sealing and the top was coming off way too easily. But after 15 minutes on a granite counter top, inside with AC, they are fine. Nice production quality. Just an onbservation, not a criticism. Can't wait to start using them.

      Thank you so much, it all helps. Even after 50+ years developing B&W films I'll never say no to more information.

      Appreciate the videos. The tank is only a few miles away. Can't wait to finally use it :)

      Is it possible to have a soft copy of the instruction that is mailed to us? It will be handy just in case we lost the hard copy.
