Is it the 36 exposure causing trouble or would the Paterson tank simplify and ease the process. I have been reluctant to switch to stainless steel tanks.....unless this is the answer.
    Thanks for the guidance.....my last roll was the roll from hell.

    make sure ,the reels are really dry. any humidity(residual droplets of water)will make the film stick to the reel.

    Thanks to all for the insight.

    My difficulty is that as I get the film engaged and happily going on the reel. The effort went up significantly and then the film "buckled" out of the outermost track on the plastic reel. I tried numerous times using both ends of the film and trimming to 45 degrees........finally got the roll on such that the last 10 inches or so were outside the largest track. I then carefully developed and voila.....the film developed all the frames, but there was damage to the plastic film from the buckling.

    I then tried another roll AFTER reading all the insightful remarks.....no problem, but the effort at the end was larger than I would have liked but it worked.

    Since the reel is of a variable format design, in going forward, I may equip myself with a purpose sized film carrier for 35mm'

    thanks to all
    David
