Age takes its toll on the rubber parts. I treat them with rubber conditioner, e.
The camera was in very good condition, but here and there the rubbery material on the body had become brittle. I found another obscure Rondinax clone and I thought you might be interested to have a look at it. It was originally sold under the name Rondinox and, at some point, it was renamed Laborex, as stated on the instruction manual of the latter.
I attach a PDF of the manual. Unfortunately the film presents a systematic dense dark shadow along its entire length, plus some strange pink coloured area at one of the final sides. I found this Vesterbox 60 [on a Japanese auction site here and remembered your post about a mysterious adapter. The adapter is inserted inside to loading chamber and narrows it to accept rolls. Ginrei also made a narrower guide and an adjustable reel to accept the film.

So, these manufacturers did take up the idea explained in the Patent History Page while Agfa did not:. The final patent British PatentDaylight Developing Tank for Photographic Roll Films granted to Kehr, Lesjak and Strauss on 24 March provided the basis for film widths other than and 35 mm within a single tank.
They describe several methods by which the spiral discs could be moved inwards for, say film, as in a conventional universal tank, while keeping the film guide, clip and strap of the Rondinax tanks central.
I was thinking of trying a Jubilee clip around the manual rotatory knob, and then adapt the Jubilee clip by adding the turning handle. Has anybody done this and agf do you think?
My reason for doing it is that my arthritis makes it difficult with the set up as it is. I have a Rondinax 60 which I had been using on a regular basis. A few months ago one of the fingers snapped on the film guide which was a bit disappointing. However my wife bought me a 3D printer for my birthday which I have managed to get to grips with and after two failed attempts to print a guide number three was successful. I have put my first film through the tank with the new guide with complete success.
If others require a guide please get in touch at j-horne3 sky. I will have to make a small charge. They take about four hours to print.
I know from other emails since I set this site up that the piece most likely to me missing or damaged is the film guide. This could bring a few Rondinax 60s back into use. Thanks to Sally Stein who is researching Agfa colour film of this period we have scans of the Agfa Amateur Catalogue, German version:.
I have been using my motorised Rondinax again lately, and have run several films through it using exactly the same times as I use for intermittent agitation in a conventional tank.
I found the ad below while scrolling ebay and thought you might be interested to have a look. The photographs there show the lid which states the patent number the U. Apart from the markings on the lid and of the positions of the light-tight container, the plastic parts appear identical to the Rondinax I then noticed that the film clip appeared identical to the one in that other clone, the Kent 20, purportedly manufactured in Britain:.
Maxime also drew my attention to the Yankee version spotted sold on a South African Auction site. The lid of that one looks as if a Yankee badge has added to the moulding tool so as to overlay the original moulding. Otherwise the tank looks identical to the Prime Photo Products version. Were the Kent 20 and the Loadomat 20 really made in Britain and the U.
Or were original Agfa moulding tools altered and used in the two countries?
And were the belts and clips of the clones made by one manufacturer? How many were made and sold, given their comparative rarity on the market? I can see why one of these tanks turned up on a South African auction site. This catalogue shows they were sold in South Africa:. Twitter Facebook Google Email. DB has a problem: So, these manufacturers did take up the idea explained in the Patent History Page while Agfa ronidnax not: Great bit of work from Maxime!
Jim Horne contacted me: Thanks to Sally Stein who is researching Agfa colour film of this period we have scans of the Agfa Amateur Catalogue, German version: There is one of these for sale on the U.
I then noticed that the film clip appeared identical to the one in that other clone, the Kent 20, purportedly manufactured in Britain: Here is a photograph of the box: Whatever the answers, we are most grateful to Maxime for finding them.
