    In some more stuff dropped off at school; a nikor 35mm ss tank and two reels in the original boxes with directions (for heavens sake).

    CLearly the boxes show their age, but a collector might enjoy.

    $10 plus shipping

    I got a few of these in a "junk" box purchase once at an estate sale. Nikor in Massachusetts? Always wondered if these had any connection to Nikon....

    Those clipless Nikors are great; someone is going to be happy.

    I can't manage to make them work; there must be a procedure I don't know about.

    Yeah it takes bit of practice to get the knack of it, and better for someone to help you get started, but once you get it...its GREAT.
    I learned on the SS reels when I was in high school, so its funny when I tell the photo teacher at the local college that I can use the SS reels, but I can't use the plastic reels. The teacher and the other students look at me rather oddly.

    Oh, steel reels are fine...I just can't get the knack of the clipless ones.

    To me, the clipless ones (the original Nikor) are the best, because they are so simple. You orient as if you were going to "slide" the film in backwards, turn the reel so you can insert into the only open part of the axis, then turn the reel and go. The most important thing to remember, for me, is to move the reel, not the film, as you load it.

    while all my steel reels have clips I've never clipped the film. I feel that clipping the film disrupts its flow into the reel somehow.
