    Hey guys,

    I've been missing the target with rolling a 24 exp roll of BandW film with the Lloyds bulk loader. How many turns do I do with leader at front and back of roll? I've been wasting film on a couple of rolls. Do tell.

    It's engraved right on the loader below the crank hole.

    Mine says 36exp.-31 turns, 24-24 turns,18-19 turns,and 10- 13 turns.
    Mine doesn't say lloyds but looks identical.

    Hope this helps

    Early Lloyds required one to count the turns. Later ones clicked once per frame. On those I counted 44 clicks for a 36 exposure roll.
