Used Paterson Auto-Load Reel

We suggest to soak the reel in warm water and dish soap to removes any traces of old chemicals. The price is for 1 reel ONLY. If available, you can buy multiple.

Designed for use in the Paterson Super System 4 tanks. The reels are adjustable to to accommodate 35mm, 127 and 120 film sizes.

The reels have a smooth finish to allow for free flow of solution and are equipt with a twin ball ratchet loading system that ensures easy loading of the film.

In Use:

When adjusting the reel to accommodate different sizes of film hold one end of the reel in your left hand and the other end in your right hand. Then turn each end of the reel in opposite directions until the two part of the reel unlock. The two halves of the

reel can now be slid apart until the correct width for the film to be processed is reached. Now turn each half of the reel in opposite directions to re-lock the two halves in the new position. With new reels the two halves my require extra pressure to unlock them, but this eases with use.
