    I think I would rather be stabbed in the heart with the blunt point scissors than forced to watch endless TV.

    Same with the Canon FN-100 bulk back for the F-1N! (I always found it supremely annoying on the older 250 exposure back that you had to cut a leader shape in the dark to attach the film to the empty spool when loading it up originally. At least with the other end and with normal bulk loaded carts you can cut the leader in the light...)

    Ever seen reels for those long bulk backs or do you cut them up?

    Here's what I've been using recently:

    But I'm also trying to put together the Nikor and/or Hewes sets for this too, since I prefer stainless:

    My two most recent 35mm camera purchases are Canon EOS cameras - An Elan IIe and Rebel 2000. Both of them work fine with film cut straight across.

    Thanks for the links. Must feel like forever loading those big reels.

    Dear Naaklvoerder,

    Thanks for your suggestion, To the best of my knowledge no one has ever made one.

    I think people would rather cut an approximate tongue than use a 'device' so I do not
    see an opportunity on this occasion.

    Kind Regards

    Try and find an ABLON template in any condition. Even if you do find one, it will come at a dear price. They go for over $100 on flea bay if you can find them. I would love to have one, it would make trimming the pointed end easier before loading the brass cassettes. I have been using a blunt pair of child's paper scissors to trim the film leaders for my LTM Leicas.

    I THINK the original poster was wanting a device to sut the tounge to attach to the spool inside the cassette. These days we have to use DX coded reusable cassettes, to get our High tech film camera to know what film they are shooting. ALl the cassettes I have purchased recently come with a spool designed for the film loading machines used by the film factories. they expact the film to be tapered and have either 1 or two small holes to catch on a hook moulded into the cassette. They are the same as most makers (except Kodak) use for film.

    As a work around I have been tossing the spools that come with them, and instead using spools salvaged from Kodak Film. This requires a bit of manipulation of masking tape in the dark.

    IF there was a small device like a paper punch, that one could stick the end of the film in, and squeze, replicating the outline of the tail end of the factory film, one could just stuff the film into the spool, and be done. The result would then be identical to what comes from the factory.

    The tongue outside the cassette is not as hard to do, and is dependent on the camera(s) in use. And it also can of course be cut in the light.

    I would be willing to pay say 30 bucks US for such a device.

    That was my understanding also.

    And that was my conclusion as well.
