    Cash in on my old 120 spools?

    I don't believe it. People are selling used 120 spools on eBay. I have hundreds. Maybe I can cash in

    Only if you mislabel them and try to pass them off as 620 spools lol. Let me know how it works out, I have a neat pile over here as well.

    I mentioned the price of 620 spools to my Dad. He figures that if he just had saved all the loose 620 spools lying around his office at Kodak he could have retired rich!

    I gave an old roll of VP127 and an extra spool so one of the APUGgers could use his little camera. I still have a couple, but I'll keep them for my Baby Yashica. I could sure use a few 620 spools, I have only a few and I have a couple of old cameras which won't take a modified 120 spool. Since I have only three spools it limits my picture taking with these old box cameras.

    620 spools are worth money?

    i have a whole jar full. what do they bring? ok, ebay has them for around $5 each, on average.

    woopie do. Those folks DO realize every old 620 camera has one in it, right?

    Someone buy a 3D printer and start making your own spools of all sizes.

    convert them into 35mm adapters and you'll find people paying you big bucks for them.
