    Hi all, I have just bought at a flea market a bulk film loader. I was wondering what size of bulk film should I buy - 17 or 30 meters - since the inner diameter of the loader is 7,3 centimeters...
    Thank you!

    Posting a picture of your bulk loader will help a lot.

    Dear borgunto,

    A quick measurment of mine gives 95mm and works with a 30m roll. I suggest you go with the shorter roll.

    My ALDEN-74 measures out 3.724+ inches or 80.60mm across the supply reel space. It takes up to 100 foot spools. Hope that provides a starting data point.

    E' il modello Z30? Se si allora va bene il rullo da 30mt (dovrebbe andando ad intuito). Se è lo Z60 non c'è problema...

    Never seen one before either. Could it be a 70mm bulk loader? Too wide to be 35mm.
