I understand you can with an adaptor use metal Hewes reels in a Jobo.
The 220 reels I've set myself up with in the past months all said Jobo on the
box but were Hewes (made in England) reels stamped into the metal.

They have thicker wire just like the 35mm Hewes reels have thicker wire which
take a lickin and keeps on tickin. and are easier to load. And make me smile in
the dark.
