Hi Guys - I need help. I have an old GAF 888Z 8mm/super 8mm film projector
that our library uses/loans occassionally (yes, really!!). However, I have
no film take up reels. The GAF unit doesn't use the standard 8mm/super 8
reels. The center hub spindle measures about 3/8" diameter and extends
about 1" out from the casing. I've not seen any 8mm film reels like it
except for the older Bell & Howell plastic reels. Can any one give me any
guidance on what type of reel for which I should be looking and, if so,
where I might procure 2-4 such reels (take-up and play). thank
immeasurably. What a relief from the copyright questions, huh? Jim
