"Community property" darkroom equipment, in my experience, seems to suffer 
from a "tragedy of the commons" -- no one keeps the stuff clean and in good 
working order, unless an obvious problem arises.

I keep my plastic (nylon) Paterson reels pristine between 
uses.  Cleanliness is next to godliness (and next to 
impossible).  ;-)  They have yet to fail me, though as I go ever-deeper 
into the digital darkroom, they get less and less use...
