I just measured some actual 122 film stock, and it came out as 3.614", more or less. I don't know whether this is factory VP122 or some of that 105mm Ortho Copy microfiche that I cut down myself; the edge markings only say "KODAK SAFETY FILM" with no frame numbers. 3-5/8 is exactly 3.625", so this would be pretty close.
Thank you Shalom for the correction. I wrote the message before I processed my first roll of 122, so I had nothing to measure against, only online references. I now have processed a roll of verichrome pan and I agree, my film measures 3-5/8 inch wide as well. Which makes sense since 3.715 would be a rather weird number

Simon, my offer is still open. I can express mail a piece of the film and a spool, if needed, to you so you can match it when cutting HP5+.

Eugene.
