when one is in need of a take up reel for a 16mm projector...

i was lucky enough to find someone who could lend me a 16mm projector here in marfa, so i could work on a drawing film. i won't get into the numerous problematic situations that occurred, but suffice to say that the case of the missing take up reel was solved with a cardboard box, some glue, and the center core of a roll of tape...

Well done! Outstanding.

I'll have to forward this to a buddy of mine in New Orleans. He had so many 16mm films that they warped the floor of the room he kept them in.

Enjoy your blog, too, btw.

very resourceful indeed! ironic/funny/cute that it is the box for a fan...a thing that goes round and round to wind the tape round and round....
