Take up reel.

#1 by Robert Crewdson ( deleted ) , Mon Sep 21, 2015 11:49 am

I just received a film on a 2,200ft spool, and my largest spool is 2,000ft, which is what I always use. Once I can get a larger spool, would you recommend I use this all the time, or stay with the 2,000ft spool. most features come on 1,600ft spools.

Yes, 16mm Andrew. Maybe Clyde or David have thoughts on this.

I always use my Taylor reel now, which is size of 2000' but smaller core to fit 2200'. Hate when reels overfills :-)

Use the 2200 foot spool for the take up. Best use a metal spools however as they are best for taking up buckled black and white film stock
in my experience.
