    WTB: Minox film slitter

    My new job as an international spy requires me using a Minox B camera. Times being tight, I'll need to slit and load my own film, so I can afford the payments on my underwater car and jet glider. If you have a film slitting device, ideally one that slits film from 120 rolls, but others may be fine--please contact me by dead drop, or PM--whatever. Thanks.

    I used to refer people to "Goathill Photo", but recent posts suggest he hasn't been filling orders.

    Thanks, the Goathill guy no longer responds to emails. I did find a guy that makes some very nice,, but pricey splitters. I think I'll hold off on anything fancy until I see if I like the Minox.

    So I'm guessing Goat Hill has gone the way of the Dodo? I sent an email and have heard nothing.
    Finding slitters for sale (ebay, etc.) seems to be impossible. What are the options then, Do-It-Yourself?

    The Goathill guy took 6 weeks, but he eventually responded to me and I now have one of his film slitters. He told me he'd be building more, but it would take months, so don't be surprised if contacts you--but who knows when? There are also plans at http://kcbx.net/~mhd/2photo/slitter/build.htm and they look fairly simple.

    Jimmy Li makes the fancy Minox film slitters and by all accounts, they're beautiful little machines that work well. Although they're not inexpensive ($200?), they look like they're worth it if you're a hard core Minox shooter.

    Well, Goathill never got back to me, so I ended up designing and building my own slitter. It wasn't without its perils, but it has been rewarding.

    Shooting MINOX makes for excellent film economy!
