    It is not only early Leicas that wind the film emulsion out.

    I had another type of weird problem with Patterson´s reels, the metal balls, when handled with nitrile gloves, produce sparks of light because of statics I guess. Not very good when you are trying to load ISO 3200 film. I don´t use gloves anymore to load my reels.

    Score the balls lightly with a soft lead pencil. I use a 2B. Roll the pencil marks in with a finger tip. Some people say avoid putting the reels in wash aid but I do this then throw the reels into a bucket of hot water straight after pulling off the film. Then clean reels and balls with a tooth brush after hanging all the film and leave to air dry. If all else fails throw the reel in the bin! I did this last weekend with a particularly bothersome reel which has evaded all attempts at restitution. It wasn't a genuine Paterson - one of the cheaper imitations.

    The only major issue is caused by a few early Leicas which rolled the film onto the take-up spool emulsion out. This gave the film a reverse curl which made it impossible to load!
    Have you tried cutting the leading edge of the film between the sprocket holes, not through them. Then trim off the leading corners just a touch at 45 degrees as this will stop them digging into the sides of the grooves so much.
    that's excacvtly whatv I did!,and it worked well.

    Paterson reels

    I run the reels through the dishwasher periodically. Helps remove any accumulated gelatin or other gunge, and the dishwasher's rinse aid helps them dry quickly and thoroughly. Oh yes, be sure to disassemble them before washing in any fashion, or water will be left in the "core" and show up when you don't want it!
