    Just ruined two rolls of 120 yesterday.... My stainless reels are a bit misshapen and it's really hard to wind them on correctly. I used the Hewes everyone talks about in class years ago and never had a problem. I'm not developing any more mf until I get some decent reels.

    I would be willing to buy or would prefer to trade: How about Prints? Look through my Gallery or website and let me know. Ultimately I need 3 reels.

    Should probably keep this in the US shipping wise.

    Thanks! Shawn

    Good Afternoon, Shawn,

    Give Kinderman 120 reels a try if you get any offers. They have a puncturing pin at the core which makes loading almost foolproof; in 120 size, I would regard them as on par with Hewes.

    I have 3 or 3 if you don't get any elsewhere but they are in the UK and I'm not back there for 2-3 weeks.

    Thanks fellows, appreciate it! Waiting to hear from Duncan at this point.

    I just can't take ruining any more film, just about devastated me yesterday... of course now I have a good excuse to make more exposures!
