    WTB Hewes developing reels

    As the title states, I am interested in some Hewes developing reels, both 35mm and 120. Anyone have too many and want to sell me some? Im thinking maybe 3 or 4 35mm and 2 120. Thanks!

    I believe that you can get these through Freestyle.

    Alternatively, you could also order directly from Hewes itself. Email info@hewes.co.uk or Nigel Hall <nigel@hewes.co.uk> for the quotations.

    Thanks for the help guys. I'm not having trouble finding them, per se. It is just that I'd rather not pay $25-$30 per reel if I can help it. If someone out there happened to have a few that they were not using and could part with them for less than retail and needed a little film money, maybe we could reach a deal where we could both be happy. Thanks again.

    I am in the Midwestern USA. Just curious why this might matter? I think these could be shipped easily without any fear of damage

    Because APUG members live all over the world. If I had some spare Hewes reels, what you would need to pay me for postage would vary greatly depending on whether I need to send them to Sydney or Chicago. See?

    Curious why people are secretive about their location when it is often an obviously helpful piece of info...

    I have ruined 120 film by using a cheap reel. I used to have a reel that would always load improperly and I would end up with a ruined piece of film. After three rolls that I had to scrap at $4.50 a roll, the $23.99 that Freestyle is asking for a 120 reel doesn't seem so bad. If you don't run over it with a truck, a Hewes reel will last you for as long as film is made or the rest of your life, whichever is longer. A pretty good investment.
