    What kind of film reels are these?

    I have a bunch of these, not sure what tanks they are used with. They don't use a core, instead each reel fits into the next one. They don't split apart, or at least not very easily.

    Looks to me like 35 mm and 120 Unicolor film drum reels.

    There are 35mm reels and then 120 reels that have a black spacer in them. Like I said they don't seem to come apart easily so I don't know if they are convertible between one and the other.

    I don't think they are Jobo as they don't have a separate core. Hopefully this picture shows it better, the top of one reel fits into the bottom of the other. I've put a jobo reel in the photo for comparison. They do fit into a Jobo tank but more snugly than the Jobo reels.

    Here is the 35mm vs. 120 reel. Sorry about the crappy smartphone pics.

    I know I have a Unicolor print drum, I'll have to dig around to see if I have any film tanks for these reels.

    These reels should fit in the print drums. The only difference is the type of cap, and beaker it includes.
