    The best scissor for cutting film is the type for cutting clothes. Not too long but also not a very short one.
    Not a problem at all!

    Hi there. For those in need of left-handed items try my cousin at www.sinistershop.com. He has so many items that you will lust after and he tries to get the best quality. Pen knives, scissors etc. It was really an eye opener when he showed me the catalogue once. It really can be a handycap. Imagine using a manual can opener for example!

    Sounds like you're using plastic safety scissors!

    New scissors aren't expensive. I'm using Ikea ones (that come in a three pack of various sizes and different coloured handles) to cut my film and never had a problem with them.

    Thanks Shelly for the link to your cousin's site. I've definitely bookmarked the link!

    Scissors user here. Only missed once in three years of dev.-only, uncut 120 B&W negs. Yes, tricky, but with a steady hand (which is occasionally a challenge) and patience, no prob.
    Thank you.

    I use an old HAMA film guillotine I bought originally to chop up a mountain of slide film from a trip to New Zealand in the early 80s. Very easy with negs as you get a transparent bar between frames, little more care needed for positives with a black bar. The base has raised bars a frame's width either side of the blade. Don't think I have sliced through more than a frame or three in total. Scissors for 120, with an occasional mistake. Seagull TLR gives almost no space between frames.

    I have a box of 24 DD 20 ROWI Slide Frames. Metal construction with a cardboard spacer and 2 pieces of glass to hold together a film strip? you can see a photo at imageshack link below.

    I hope one of you avid readers can give me an idea of what the heck they can be used for. They are made in Germany, and sold by Eddie Black's (nee Black's Appliances and later Black's photography
    They are from the Late 40' , 50s , or very early 60s, but not likely the 60s.

    The are for mounting transparencies, films like Ektachrome, Velvia and the late, great Kodachrome. The ones with the larger windows in your picture are for 35mm the smaller one, not sure, maybe Minox or similar.
