    I have a small number of 35mm film reels available. Please note, however, the initial and very important restrictions before going much further.

    While these are free to whoever wants them,

    1. I will NOT ship them, anywhere.

    2. I am willing to deliver them to a 'common meeting area' such as a Park & Ride, mall parking lot, or other conveniently available public area within a reasonable range of Baltimore, Maryland. (This area may include parts of Columbia, Annapolis, Towson, Hunt Valley, Belair, Odenton, Crofton, Laurel, or White Marsh.) Please note that I do not wish to make deliveries within the city limits of Washington, DC or Baltimore City, itself. Reasonable exceptions may apply.

    3. I'd prefer to unload all of these at one time, rather than driving all over creation.

    As for the reels themselves,

    - 2 3000' aluminium reels. These are quite large - maybe 30" in diameter, heavy metal construction. Some are marked, for example, "GATTICA R1-3" from when they were still in occassional use in a now long defunct General Cinema.

    - 4 1000' reels. Materials vary; some metal, some plastic. One, if I recall, is a split reel (sides can be unscrewed from center core.) These are about 12-14" diameter.

    If there is sufficient interest, I may be able to get more of the 3000' reels. To sweeten the pot, I'll also throw in some 35mm theater advertisements, trailers, Movie-fone, and the like. (On special requests, I can probably scare up specific samples with SR*D, SDDS, or DTS time code tracks.)

    Okay, I will consider them gone. (Of course, if Gregg wants to share, that's okay, too. I just don't want to get involved.. [​IMG] )

    I guess we'll work out details in e-mail.

    Greg,
    I am late to the game, but I would also like to try the coffee table making game. Could you let me know if you have extras. I live just east of DC in Maryland and would be willing to meet you somewhere.

    Thanks,
    Lenny
