    WTB: Reel or reel+tank for 122/124 film

    That's the film for Kodak 3A pocket cameras. Do you have one gathering dust? Please let me know...

    Well, my rather ambitious plan is to start coating my own film. But before I do that, I am trying to get all the ducks aligned - no point of making the film if I have no easy way to process it...

    Have you sourced film base yet? I've looked, but my Google-fu is failing me miserably in that regard.

    I did say it was an ambitious plan. I should add crazy and with a low chance of success. Anyway I was thinking to try Yupo. They make a clear or translucent version. It is a bit stiffer than photo film, so I'm not sure how well it's going to behave on film spools. However it is used for carbon tissue and seems to hold emulsion well. Anyway, I'm not that far ahead in coating, so I've got loooong ways to go before worrying about specifics.

    Not as low as you might think. Check out this APUG thread. I was in absolute awe. Time, space, and perseverance are going to be definite prerequisites.

    The lead I was looking for. As a result, I wound up finding rolls of acetate film here in what appear to be fairly common film widths. Also, I was able to find multiple sources of 20" and 40" wide clear polyester film in various lengths and thicknesses (from 1 to 7 mils). An example is here.

    If I had the time, space, and disposable income, I'd be all about getting some coating on. Good luck in your endeavors! Oh, and when you do get your production line ready to roll, let me know. I'd love to assist in testing—as long as I can get my old Rexo refurbished.

    It might be easier to find some 9.5 inch aerial film and slit it to the proper width.

    That's a good find Henry! Thank you for the link. By the way, if you have not seen it, check the substrate thread here: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum205/...glass-etc.html

    Heh, if I ever get to that point, I will certainly send you a roll to try

    Sure, but that would be too easy
