It is an awkward task to load reels, but that is all it is.... awkward.

It can be learned and once learned it becomes a simple task. The problem we learn to overcome is alignment. The base plate will greatly assist in alignment but you will not learn the "feel" that the plate replaces. Once you "get the feel" of right hand and left hand working together in the dark you will load six sheets quickly and smoothly.

You gotta hold your tongue just right and keep both eyes either open or closed
