    Well I picked up a roll of Verichrome (nitrate based so it's in a glass jar with a metal lid in the freezer) of "fresh" 130 from 1949, a single roll.

    There's was a second 130 roll that looked like it had been exposed but not developed that I lost a bid on, as I'm only bidding the minimum, no bidding wars for me. But the on I lost also had a second take up spool so that was a little disappointing.

    Looks like 130 is about 1mm to 1.5mm wider than 116 so I think the 70mm will be just fine.

    I use 120 with spacers on the supply side, and made a special take up spool for t'other side. I could have just made some spacers with a "drive key", which would have meant I could shoot more than one roll..... I used the autographic window and masked that with a red window that lines up with the 6x6 numbers on the film backing paper.

    I made some film guide rails out of brass sheet to support the narrower 120 film, and a "pressure plate" out of some card.

    From memory (since it's a couple of years since I last shot with it), it ends up shooting 55 x 105mm frames or thereabouts.

    Any idea in the exact size of the reels and width? As I have a bag of old spools.

    Thanks, I can measure later today, it is slightly bigger (by about 1mm) than 116 and the spool flange is the same exact size as 116.

    I have 1 new with film now, so will have to find out if the camera has a spool in it or not.

    No problem I will dig the bag out at teatime.
    i checked those agfa 127 films the only ones left on the list are ct18 from about 1960

    It just occurred to me that I don't have a 130 format size developing tank... Eep!!!

    Who the heck would have one???

    Did they even exist back then? Should I look for a SS one?
