    I still have all my 120 reels too, and the backing paper! I have them all standing up on the top shelf of my dry side workbench. I don't know why. I just like them.

    I've been saving mine, just for kicks, over the last 10-15 years. The collection makes an interesting testament to the amount of roll film one has used. As such, they could make an interesting conversation piece, displayed in the appropriately sized glass container.

    I've also wanted to use a few of them as "perm" rollers for a shoot with a model. Perhaps with a bottle of Rodinal as the perm solution. Only "the initiated" would recognize them for what they are.

    Somehwere in this world, someone has just found an old medium format camera and after opening the back they realize that there is no empty spool. So, they put the camera back in a box for another 50 years.

    Actually, someone just modified an old Brownie Box with a pinhole, and not having patience enough to seek out a spindle (I'm not developing my own yet) shot (I hope) a roll of 120 onto the antique wooden one. Now someone is wondering if I'm going to have to roll it back onto the old (new) spindle in the dead of night under a darkcloth (leaving it wrong end out) or tell the processor I'd like my old (old) spindle back please and may I have a spare? The learning curve is pretty steep around here, but I'm really having fun!

    I have accumulated a few of the wood-cored spools, plus the later metal ones, and of course, I have a continuous supply of plastic ones. I agree with the idea of using them as hair curlers with a model, and maybe using film clips to hold the hair in place!

    "Der Satrap", the Voigtländer photo magazine, ran a competition with this theme in 1934! I happen to have some of those magazines at home, so I may post some of the more creative solutions after I get home

    Being back in physics class for the first time in *cough*twenty*cough* years, I can now definitively tell you that unless you get your catapault shot right in someone's trachea, it won't be much use that way.

    We went slingshotting in class last week to measure kinetic energy and what did I have in my pocket? Yes, a 120 spool.

    Smack the airborne ranger just back from Iraq upside the head with it at your own peril. Trust me on that one.
