    WTB: 828 spool

    I received a cute bakelite bantam for christmas. It comes with one 828 takeup spool, but I need a second for reloading. I imagine these are precious, but if anyone can spare one, I'd be grateful.

    The 828 film used to be for sale here:
    http://www.centralcamera.com/Film/Fi...sd-0-pg-2.html

    and if you don't mind sprocket holes, save the backing paper and the spools, and you can use 35mm film just fine. 828 is only unsprocketed 35mm film.

    I myself, not having a take-up spool, simply bought two rolls of 828. I will have to unroll one of the rolls and then re-roll it.

    Thanks, guys. Respooling 35mm is my plan. Now I'm bidding on bantams and ponys working or not, as long as they have a take-up spool inside. I should be good, but if anyone has anything laying around collecting dust, message me.

    You can see the spare spool in the back. Best of luck!

    Unfortunately not true. Baby Brownies use 127 film.

    Can you make one from a 35mm plastic spool?

    Shortening a 127 spool would be quicker. But a couple of 828 spools are on their way...thanks...
