    B&H, Calumet, Freestyle, even my local store carries these in stock. They are very common.

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    Where have they gone? How many were there? I must find them, for I am their leader!

    Sorry, with the "lost leader" header, I couldn't resist.

    Can't say this will work for you but it did for me. Had no money when in college.

    At a sporting event, I usually switched films. Only one camera body!

    Wound the film too far. Ended up in the cassette! What to do?

    Took a young girls emory board, made out of cardboard or some thick paper stuff with grit that's used to file fingernails. This can ruin the emory board but provides an opportunity for conversation!

    Masking tape, maybe 5 or 6 inches, put it on the emory board with sticky side out.

    Hand wound the film clockwise grasping the shaft sticking out to get the film close to the opening. Had to bend the opening a wee bit. Thinking did I do it too much, then a bunch of dark no images on the film. Won't know til I develop it. Better get some good story down just in case!

    Stuck the emory board inside. Have to bend it to get it to work. Enough masking tape on it so as I can hold it. It's sticky!

    Work it inside. After a couple of tries, voila! The leader comes out.

    Everything turned out just fine.

    Thought I would tell you my experience.

    I was given a Konica one a few years ago, that uses a similar principle to the Metal one posted above. Works everytime (as long as you can hear the click as you wind the film passed). Much better then the Harma one that I had.

    I cut a 1/2" wide piece of 4x5 film (I have lots of dead film) , stick a piece of two sided tape on the end, and feed it into the cassette. Then rotate the film inside the cassette (the same direction as it goes when being rewound) until the piece of 4x5 film starts to get sucked into the cassette. Then pull out the piece of 4x5 film -- the 35mm film comes with it.
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Hi,
    The commercially prepared version of this is dymo label tape, (which may be harder to find than XX) ...works though.
