A “split reel” is a film reel in two halves that, when assembled, contain a specific length of film wound on a plastic core.
Using a split reel allows film to be shipped or processed in a lighter and smaller form than film on a “fixed” reel.
Split reels are separable film reels that can be opened to clamp the film wound around the split reel between 2 plates so that the film does not fall off when rewinding or projecting. The term “split reels” has become a thing of the past, although modern split reels are no longer “plugged in” but screwed in. I.e. the reels are opened by twisting the side parts clockwise apart. The center portion of the spool contains threads that allow opening or dividing the spool.
For 600 meters or 2000 feet of film.
Pay attention! The nylon screw connection can be damaged if overtightened. Should that happen, this nylon part can be ordered additionally (PP-0310)

== Information about material ==
The plates of this product are made of untreated aluminum. As a result, fingerprints, etc. can be seen.
To counteract these fingerprints, solutions are possible.
1) Treating aluminum (anodizing): many colors possible, weight remains light
2) Using stainless steel plates: even stronger, disadvantage: 3 times heavier than aluminum.
If you are interested in these modifications, please get in touch. Please note, the price will then be about a factor 2 higher, we can only do this for larger orders.
The stated number of meters that will fit on this reel is based on an estimate based on normal celluloid film without sound.
In the case of another type of film (eg thinner single8 film), or film with a magnetic sound track, the number of meters of films may differ.
