    In contrast to type 120 or 220 machinery, I expect each manufacturer to still have 70mm slitters, perforators and signing machines at the plant.

    The issue is whether any special conversion and offering to the market is profitable.

    I'd be game for a reel, is there enough of us for a production run?

    If it's like the Jobo 70mm reel it's only 5 feet I think. Not much more then 220 for sure. So you'd need three reels for each 70mm load. That means cutting rolls up .

    Why not look at the X-ray reels? Sure they're plastic but less then $10 usually.

    Hewes is confirming that the length would be around the same as a 220 film, i.e. approx 76".

    For my purpose, that is fine.

    That's wonderful news, since the developing is a problem that needs to be solved. If there were a 70mm back for my Koni-Omega, I would do this in a heartbeat.

    For a commercial operation, a minimum order of 50, and charging £30 a piece, they are giving them away. That is a very good deal, that you would be foolish to pass up on

    It certainly is. I am surprised that a stronger interest is not being expressed.

    In a thread about an attempt to get some usable 70 mm film from somewhere, now that it has almost disappeared completely, you are surprised that there isn't a rush on reels to proces the stuff on?


    (P.S. I have a reel, and tank. And all the rest. Just no usable 70 mm film.
    I too would have liked to see a modern film rather than FP4 and HP5.)

    Jobo Shmobo...

    What will the physical size of a Hewes 70mm reel be?
    Those of us who aren't into designer processing equipment need to determine if the reel will fit our low-tech tanks. Or, if necessary, to make a tank to fit...

    Hello,

    I bought a couple of reels and tanks (stainless) a couple of years ago - rather pricey as I recall. I have not used them yet, and I forget just what the maximum length of film is that they hold, but the are about 8 inches in diameter IIRC. I also have a roll of 70mm that I got from J&C which must be out of date by now, but not my much. I will use it, but probably not until summer 2009. So, I am not in the market for a new Hewes reel, but I think their price is very good. I would be interested in some fresh film.

    Cheers,
    Clarence
