  If you are going to use these tanks you will need several,
one for each solution and something to wash the film in.
They should be plentiful on the used market. I think you
will find mostly the 8x10 tanks. The large ones take 3-1/2
gallons of solution but there are smaller tanks. There are
film hangers for hanging 5x7 or four 4x5s in an 8x10 tank.
  There was also a daylight 5x7 processor made by Morse
Instrument Co., which occasionally shows up on eBay. This is
a rig that holds several regular tank type hangers in a box
with a light trap at the bottom Its put into regular tanks
and agitated by lifting out and draining, the same as
hangers on a rack. They were made for the military so are
very stongly built. I have not seen one in a while.
   Note that you will find a regular tank system easier to
work with if you have racks for the hangers.
