    Hello All,
    I am wondering if I am doing something wrong? I have been using my Graphic roll film holder and it seems that every other roll of film it starts to bind up. This makes it almost imposible to advance the film smoothly. It will advance but in jerks. The next time i use it it works fine and i am able to advance the film smoothly.
    What am I doing wrong?
    thanks
    Arthur

    I don't think you are doing anything wrong. I have had the same intermittent problems with Graphic roll film holders. You need to get an experienced repairman to give it a once over. I don't know if Paul Ebel works on holders but he might be worth a try (paulebel44@yahoo.com).

    Send it to SK Grimes. They can fix it.
