Minox developing tank thermometergreenspun.com : LUSENET : Minox Photography : One Thread
I've just go a dev tank but unfortunately, it doesn't have a thermometer. Can someone help me by providing the diameter and length of the dev tank thermometer? I'm thinking about getting a similar sized thermometer locally (in Malaysia).

Personally, I've developed something like 60 rolls of Minox film in the Minox Tank, and I've NEVER used the thermometer. I use a plain old round-dial photo thermometer to check my developer temperature before pouring it in, and since I use the "rap on the table and shake like a martini" agitation method, I don't even put in the thermometer. (Nothing against Martin's pumping technique, but I've never used it.)
In any case, the thermometer is NOT required to get good results with the Tank.

I have a thermometer with my old 50-exposure Minox tank,but never use it since I`m worried about breaking it in the tank.Also,it doesn`t go down far enough when developing smaller rolls of film.I made a wooden dowel the same diameter as the thermometer and about 8 inches long and it works fine.
