    I can load that.

    The only reason I got a Patterson tank was because of the inability to find 127 steel reels, but that has been rectified. Nothing worse than 127 Efke on plastic reels. (Except 120 Efke on plastic reels)(curl baby, curl!).

    This might be slightly irrelevant at this point but.. The advice to listen while you load the film is absolutely invaluable.. Crinkling/binding/bending and nasty noises are no good. I find it easier to load 120 on stainless as opposed to plastic and the easiest stainless reels for me are the Hewes brand.

    Once you learn how to load a Hewes, you can load just about anything..
    Just my $0.02 as i've smashed many a plastic reel...

    Kindermann used to sell tools for loading their SS reels, one for 135 film, one for 120 film, I do not know, if they still do. These days I do all my 120 stuff in the big Jobo 2500 reels, they are MUCH better than the 1500 reels. In the 1500 tanks I use Hewes reels for 135 films.

    Colour? We can always use an airbrush later...
