    Some will come off in the developing process and contaminate your film.

    As a mater of fact, there is someone making an apron for 35mm film.

    That is what I was afraid of.

    I'd seen the Lasagna aprons once before. I'll have to give one a try. Too bad they are only made for 35mm though.

    Thanks

    I'm surprised to see something of this kind again.
    Such a distance tape has been introduced over here in 1929 and vanished in the 60's with the general use of reels.

    Freestyle had aprons on their site until a couple of years ago.

    How about just folding up some wax paper, poking it in the grooves, and sliding it around the reel to make them a little more slippery?

    Or, just get a quality reel, practice with a sacrificial roll, and solve the problem forever.

    I guess I missed the reel size/film size accommodation needed? Silicone spreads until it is one molecule thick and is essentially a slick contaminate. Long term it will migrate to lots of places you do not want it to go. Making an adaption for your 'limiting factors' might be a great adaption for others who have desire being thwarted by the same type of 'bedeviling assault' on their life quality. Developed an adapter for a truck driver once who had to hold re-bar with flat straps. Just a special adapter to couple the strap winch to a torque multiplier worked. An apron should be doable in most any suitable plastic film. One off or several. PM me if you chose.
