Developing large rolls of Minox film : LUSENET : MINOX FAQ : One Thread

I have read in threads that different films can be loaded into plastic and brass cassettes with different numbers of exposures due to different film thicknesses.Several film types can be loaded with 60 or 70 exposures.How do you develop a roll of Minox film with more than 50 exposures,since the Minox tank only handles 50 exposures?Doesn`t the spiral on the tank drum fill up at 50?

Good question.

You need either a Nikor stainless steel reel or wind the film on a bottle and develop in in 35mm tank.

See Don Khrebiel website for discription of "pill box" Minox film developing technique.
