    I've got some plastic reels, 5 for 135 and 3 for 120, which I acquired somewhere along the way, and I can't identify them. They are not Paterson, nor will they fit a Paterson or stainless tank. And they are not adjustable either. They do load like a Paterson but have no steel ball to ratchet.

    (I don't even remember what box of "junk" I bought that they came in. They didn't fit anything I had, so they went out back. Clearly something else in the box had my attention that day.)

    Moving along, my wife is determined to make me get rid of some of the stuff in the back, so I'm trying to identify them and find them a better home than my local landfill.

    Hi Michael: They look like those I have from "Unicolor"; made for use in their film drum. They were offered in 35mm and 120 sizes; non-adjustable.
    Hope this helps, Howard Tanger
