I am having trouble loading my 35mm 36 exposure rolls into my ansco plastic tank. I have no difficulty loading the 24 exposure roll into the reel. The reel features the ratchet system of the Paterson type tank. The ansco is definitely old......however it may have seen 100 rolls of film. Is it the 36 exposure causing trouble or would the Paterson tank simplify and ease the process. I have been reluctant to switch to stainless steel tanks.....unless this is the answer.
Thanks for the guidance.....my last roll was the roll from hell.
make sure ,the reels are really dry. any humidity(residual droplets of water)will make the film stick to the reel.
