    We could buy the 120 spools from the second seller at 10 for $9.99 then see if we could sell them to the first seller for $4.99 each so he could sell them for $9.99 each.
    This way we all make money.

    Phooey to take up reels. You reckon for the price the reel could be reloaded with just the backing paper for all those dudes who want to do homeopathic photography.
    Photography, the word itself, invented and defined by its author Sir John.F.W.Herschel, 14 March 1839 at the Royal Society, Somerset House, London. Quote "...Photography or the application of the Chemical rays of light to the purpose of pictorial representation,..". unquote.

    I think you're on to something there Maris.

    We can sell the backing paper separate. Wrapped in tinfoil.

    How about special custom-made spools ?
    I can make them out of aluminium for a couple hundred each, we just need a way to hype them.

    $9.99 + $6.99 shipping!? For two!? Seriously!? I can walk into a high street lab, any lab, ask for a bundle of rolls (I don't know what I'd use them for...) and get them free, zero, zilch, nada. From what I know, they end up in landfill, not routinely recycled. Nice bit of opportunistic profiteering which does tend to tarnish eBay a bit by dint of such a silly listing. But I've definitely seen worse things...

    I worked really hard for a while trying to figure out how to make cheap 620 spools. I know that if you could just find a refurbishable punch-press that actually made the suckers in the 1950s they could still be cheap enough.

    But new tooling was just out of the question.
