What's the technical reason behind the banding?

I believe the banding is caused by non standard film. I had to cut 9.5" aerial recon film down to 8" and I think it was not playing off the spool correctly. So pressure would build up as the camera tugs on the spool, then it would give way, and pressure starts again. Also the camera is 85 or 90 years old and who knows when it was disassembled and cleaned lubed properly last. I plan to do that before the next shot. Maybe this weekend at "Shooting the West" in Winnemucca. jg
