    127/120 paper backing

    What do I do with it after I'm done developing the film?

    By the way, rolling this film onto my spool causes much frustration and the use of extremely fowl language. I've never said chicken, turkey, pigeon, ect...more in my entire life!

    For some unknown reason, I save all mine in a box. Once in a blue moon I think I have a project that involves using the stuff, but that idea goes away as quickly as it came. I know what you mean about using the words duck, goose, and blue footed boobie when respooling 120 onto 620 spools for my Duaflex II. However, that diminishes with practice. So, practice, practice, and more practice.

    I'll have plenty of practice. I know that. Now that the film is drying (it looks rather good, except for the one I over-exposed), my scanner only handles 35mm film! D'oh! I should have figured out I'd get into the medium format film. Another set of fowl language, and yes, blue-footed boobie is right! I'm almost thinking of using my iMac with a plain background and my digital camera on a tripod as my 'scanner'. (Yes, I said it. Digital camera...it comes in handy from time to time, though.) I've also seen using a light covered with the white plastic grocery bags and a d****** camera as a scanner, also. *rolls eyes* It sucks when one doesn't have enough room in their house for an enlarger.

    I have a couple of Patterson units. I find it easy to load 120 film. That being said it just takes practice.

    What does this have to do with paper backing?

    If you are talking about developing reels: I have found the heavy duty (Hewes, I think) reels to be quite easy to load, much more so than even the easiest 35mm. Calming. I say things like "Magret de Canard" and "Fois Gras" and occasionally "Coq au Vin".

    If you are talking about re-rolling from a 120 to 127, I haven't a clue.

    Just trying to figure out what to do with the paper backing once I have the film on the reels and in the tank. *shrugs* I could always save up enough of it to wallpaper my house.

    I'm not sure if I want to buy bulk film or not. 35mm in bulk is probably more like it if I can get my kids interested in film.

    Stick it on ebay along with the empty reels.

    How about just throwing it away? Or add it to your paper recyling?

    BTW, the plastic reels are welcomed at daycares, etc where they have great uses (like glueing them to sponges for sponge painting. Makes a handle for the kids to hold on to). Otherwise, mine would go into the plastic recycling bin.
