I've recently acquired a secondhand film loader, called a "Konica Hi-Loader" which appears to be a rebadged Bobinquick/Adorama/AP (see link below for a picture). I was wondering if anyone has instructions or could answer a few questions? I get the general idea of it (have a Watson loader as well), but there are a few things I am unsure about:
1. The loader came with a handle (worked that one out!) but also included a separate spindle/spike shaped piece of plastic around 2.5cm long which has a screw thread in at one end. The only place this fits is the bulk film shaft itself (??).
2. On the opposite side to where the handle enters the loader is a small access hole with a screw in cover. I'm not sure of the purpose of this.
Appreciate any thoughts.
