    I lost one of the 'wings' for 2509n. :sad: Should I just attach one wing or none for Portra 4x5?

    Thanks,

    Put one wing on it. I think there was somebody on the LFF For Sale section that was selling some spare wings.

    But keep looking in your storage area. Must be around there someplace.

    I never use the wings and never have seen a need for them.

    I don't even own the wings. Have never had a piece of film come out.

    I had heard that the wings were added to the 2509 reel to improve chemical circulation during rotary processing and keeping the film on the reel was a nice secondary affect.
