    I always ask for my 35mm cans back when I get my film developed at a lab. This, of course, is provided they DON'T rip the tops off them..
    Places like those minilabs that have the leader retrievers and cut the film off the spindle without opening.. This way I can reload them without issue.
    I want to try to make a 35mm USB Flash drive one of these days though

    I have a pal in archeology. and he asks for the spares I have every time we cross paths.

    In his world there is nothing better for preserving and having some way to protect and catalog small artefacts than an empty 35mm film can.

    I have hundreds of those 120 spools. Maybe I can Ebay them? I remember my uncle threw out my grandfather old cigarette tins before he met my aunt. She told him that they were worth some cash. Cigarettes, film, we all have our vices

    I built a Minty Amp guitar amp out of a 35mm bulk tin instead of using an Altoids tin. Sounds a lot better in the film tin and goes right in the gig bag.

    I was given a pile of unexposed (still in shrink wrap bricks!) Agfa colour slide film that had come from a deceased person's freezer.

    The film included paid processing, but the process was an Agfa proprietary process that hadn't been available for years.

    The good thing though is that all of the cassettes were good quality with strong but removable clipped on caps, and each film was in a nice aluminum can.

    The cassettes are perfect for bulk film. I nearly cried though as I removed and discarded all the film itself

    I make 120 sized containers by cutting the top off one 35mm can, the bottom off another and tape them together. Another (north american at least based) option is to make a habit of buying m&m's - the tube they come in is almost a perfect fit to store 120 in.

    120 containers are harder to find than I'd like, but I still have dozens of metal 35 cans, in painted steel as well as aluminum. The old Kodak ones are color coded by film stock, purple tops for Plus X, etc.

    Just buy some ADOX 120 film from Freestyle, it comes in those nice black plastic containers. The other posters are right, these containers are great for holding exposed film in your bag. I have a kodak Panoram #1 which winds the film somewhat loosely, so I usually unload the camera in a changing bag and put the exposed roll into the black plastic can. It is better than having fogged film.
