    See what you did?? You got all the old guys ranting now.........

    I went through the same thing. My metal reels got a little warped and started failing on me... Instead of buying Hewes reels, someone through a set of two plastic tanks. I'm not sold on plastic but they have been working great so far.... Easy to load too. And I can use the same stuff for 120 or 135...

    I never had a kodak tank to go with them, but I had a small tin can, later a plastic can I painted black, where the 35mm aprons fit perfectly.
    Then I envy you. You must've had a magic touch. I could never get the film to track down the middle. Finally had to switch the SS. AH yes, memories of the 1959-60's middle school.

    Its funny i'm in a local arts group in my area... there is a large amount of photographers (say 70% of the group) i'm the ONLY ONE who uses film. Though the majority of them at one point did but have since gone digital.

    You guys are such wimps. In the old days, we had to make our own tanks and reels out of stone, using stone tools and wooly elk antlers!

    Stoned? Me? Although I must admit that memory of some parts of the '60s seems a little hazy.

    You forgot to mention that your negs were coated on a dino-hide base that was prone to serious curling as it dried.
