    On EBay, try to find seller "xkaes". Bought one from him almost 2 years ago.

    The xkaes guy no longer responds and there are no longer any film slitters listed on eBay.

    Sorry, no news from xakes. You can look for used one or make one yourself. It's not very complicated if you have access to table saw and drill press

    Hi Guys,
    Joe aka XKAES(at)aol.com, maker of film slitters is back. You can contact him directly. He has four 70mm slitter styles in stock. They create 120, 35mm, 40mm or 46mm (127). He can always special order slitters but that takes a while.

    Good to hear! I have a slitter for 16mm/127 that works wonders for me.

    I was surprised and delighted to hear back from Joe, and I ordered a 120 splitter to 4 Minox strips + 1 16mm strip.

    I sent "Xkaes" an email yesterday and got an immediate reply. I ordered 2 slitters, 120 to 127 and 70mm to 127; being shipped as I write.

    Seems he was having problems with his server and was offline for a while, but he's back.
