Doing 4x5 E-6 in a Paterson Auto colortherm : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Hi all, after a lot of decades of 35 and some mf, I've blown the kid's inheritance and jumped into LF as well. My local dealer has a new/old inventory Paterson Auto Colourtherm processor sitting on a shelf looking for a home, and it would appear that this might be viable alternative to a Jobo system, for what I think will be a lot less money. Physically it is very similar to the jobo cpe/cpa systems. Film specs are rated 35-220 in the film tank -it uses the patterson system 4 tanks. I'm wondering if anyone has used this system for 4x5, in either the film tank or the paper tank (which has separators for smaller paper (hence film??) sizes. Might the jobo 4x5 reel fit in a Paterson system 4 tank?
