I always break the canister open. I've cleaned the pressure plate and have looked at it with a loupe to see if there is any weirdness and it looks ok to me. The scratch is always in the same place and is on the base side near the top of the frame. So I don't think its me putting the film on the reel or something in the light trap, now I truly believe its the camera since I've thought about it a bit more after getting some ideas from everyone. I guess I'll have a friend look at it then maybe take to a repair shop sooner or later. Thanks everyone.
