Cubes are just containers from Kodak, I suppose any plastic jug
suitable to the task will do...

ECN MP stock has a carbon backing on it which helps the film run
through the camera, keeps the base from scratching and provides anti
halation. In a ecn-2 MP processor the first step is a wash tank and
then a set of rotary buffers which remove this backing material
without getting it on the emulsion. You have to devise some way of
scrubbing the backing off, I can probably come up with some
procedures tomorrow....
