    I bought a load of KALT cassettes from B&H when i was in NY, they have the slot and post. I actually am in the proces of making such a "film-clipper" from razor blades. It's not perfected yet. (Nicked my fingers a lot) Reading your comment about the paper punches i surched the net for a fitting shape. No succes yet. Please let me know if you come up with one.

    A leatherworker's strap end punch would be a good start, though I haven't seen anybody that makes them to custom shapes, and using a loose punch with a mallet in the dark sounds dangerous. I'm wondering if something could be made that would mount into a hinged board arrangement; even if it stil requires a mallet to get a clean cut, tactile guides could be cut in the bottom board, and the cutter itself is less likely to be a hazard in the darkroom.

    I have used a single-hole paper punch. You don't need a fancy shaped leader. Cut a simple triangle that is long and narrow enough to pass through the slot in the spool. Punch a hole where the little tongue will catch it.

    What's this about doing it in the dark? Daykight bulk film loaders are worth the money.

    I agree with Nick, he needs to use decent reloadable plastic cassettes and not recycle film manufacturers ones , the proper ones are cheap enough.

    Everything works better in the dark; no exposed tail to potentially kill your last shot. I'd rather work in the dark than have what might have been a great shot ruined by not watching the counter, and my 8000i sometimes gets the last one surprisingly close to the tail on Ilford.

    Bonus; if you take pictures in the dark, you can use the same roll forever and never need chemistry.
