    Thinking of starting up film again. 35mm B&W and slide. In the past I always perused ebay for extra jobo equipment. Been years since I last looked. Some of the prices they are trying to get is amazing. Actually shocked me some. As I was expecting to see low prices of people dumping equipment that hasn't seen chemicals in years. Glad I didn't let any of my jobo equipment go.

    I have a Jobo ATL 1000 and it is worth some good money these days. New these were $5500 and today still worth around $3000.

    I didn't know they were still making them. Last I heard they shut down the Jobo processing lines. And just had the photo wallets and such. Someone must have bought out the designs and tooling. I noticed the prices are at least 2x what they used to be. Which is understandable considering they are now a low production product.

    I stumbled upon that site I listed above looking for a service manual. He sent me the PDF for free. I now know how to take mine apart for repairs and he said he has all the parts I need to rebuild mine.

    CatLabs bought out Jobo I think. At least they have Jobo equipment. It's CatLabs of JP (Jamaica Plain). I'd have to go look up the website.


    edit - Here it is, Home . It's in Massachusetts (was trying to think what city Jamaica Plain was in/near).
