Golf Club Tube Film Processing!
New member here in the Rangefinder forum.
Curious: When I was a first year photography student at RIT, (1980) my photo 1 teacher (Dick Smith) had us process our black and white neg rolls using a golf club tube and two corks. The circumference of the tube bent the 35mm stock just enough to allow the developer to run over the stock with constant agitation. The result was more even developing and consistent tonal range.
Since graduating, I went back to traditional tanks but wondered if anyone had ever heard of this process. The style tube is pictured below.
