    How many turns for Lloyds bulk loader?

    Hey guys,

    I've been missing the target with rolling a 24 exp roll of BandW film with the Lloyds bulk loader. How many turns do I do with leader at front and back of roll? I've been wasting film on a couple of rolls. Do tell.

    It's engraved right on the loader below the crank hole.

    Mine doesn't say lloyds but looks identical.

    Hope this helps

    Early Lloyds required one to count the turns. Later ones clicked once per frame. On those I counted 44 clicks for a 36 exposure roll.
