    I have one plastic 620 spool from a roll I shot recently. There is also a metal 620 spool floating around here somewhere, it was in an old Herbert George toy camera; I developed the roll so the take-up spool is probably in my box of miscellaneous darkroom stuff. I will happily send you the plastic one for postage costs. Let me know if you want me to try and find the older metal one.

    I buy old cheap VP620, shoot it and develop it and then respool them myself. New respooled 620 is too much, $12/roll at B&H.

    In my camera at least this won't work but perhaps in some it does.

    sanding/filing down works fine in ALL cameras, as long as you also thin out the end piece.. takes less than 5mins...!

    Hi Dan
    Mea culpa maxima, yes, I should have been more specific... yes, indeed you DO need a genuine 620 spool as the take up spool as the sanded down ones aren't good for that... sorry
