DIY processing tips

Lomo tanks are not an option, racks are way too chemical consuming and the classic bucket renders results that are not satisfactory for me.
I found this site:
where almost by the end the author writes that a he adapted a rack for aJobo tank.

I have written that article, you can find images here;
It's relatively easy to adapt a Jobo drum for Super 8 as you're dealing with 8mm wide film that's approximately 50ft. With16mm the film is wider [16mm wide] and twice as long 100ft approx. I have been working on a solution and think the only way is to have a Lomo spiral in a custom built automated tank and not use the Jobo, where the chemicals are automatically poured and drained and the spiral spins automatically.

By seeing your site, Have you ever made a video showing how the tanks works and/or some results?
You'll have to ask the owner of the webpage yourself. ;-) The owner is "Friedemann Wachsmuth". He's also a member of this forum: http://www.cinematog...?showuser=47833
AFAIK some of his films on Vimeo are processed by himself in his tank: https://vimeo.com/peaceman/videos/
