I have an e-mail in to Jobo corporate to see if I can get some more info.
I'll pass along whatever news I receive. Just as a guess, I'd think they
would hook up with a US marketer (like HP, for example) to keep their
presence alive here, without the cost of supporting their own US unit.

        The bigger sizes used to be all custom made IIRC. You'd send them a

        The reason I'm wondering is I've been thinking of buying a 3063 tank
but keep
putting it off. I wonder if I should hurry up.
