Jorj, that's very interesting. I never thought about drying the film while in the reel. Do you do this with 135 films?
I see an advantage, when I take the film from the drying cupboard, and I am preparing to cut stripes of 6 frames, I have to put the film somewhere, and that somewhere is the thing that causes the dirt and dust to reach the film, a 135/36 is a long piece of film and it will not stay on its side.
Never thought that one could even take the film, re-load the reel with it, and then unload it as needed for the slide cutter.
