    Mine is one, as noted in the above mentioned flickr thread, that needs tubing or a 1/4 T-nut which is a pain so I find respooling to be simpler. I have 5 spools so I'm good for 4 rolls at a time plus a take-up.

    In some cameras a real 620 is required for even the feed spool. The Kodak Duo, for instance, jams almost 100% of the time if a modified 120 spool is used in either position.

    Intriguing.. the jamming of the feed-spool, as far as I have worked out, is due to the fact that the plastic of the flange is thicker than the metal and thus the spool is fractionally longer. The same with my Olbia. But I get round this by thinning the end on a file

    In the Duo the film chamber must be "oversized" compared to other cameras. The 120 spool cocks because of the larger 120 end hole rather than rubs on the film housing.

    The Kodak Tourist has a similar problem.
