Hi, If I don't have a [size=-1]film-leader retrieval tool, how do I take the film inside out?[/size]
Is the film exposed or unexposed?
If you have accidentaly wound the film back into the can when it is unexposed - the only way you can sort it without a retrieval tool is to get a re-useable cassette. In total darkness carefully crack open the film cassette and transfer the film to the re-useable, making sure you get the film in the right way round.
My advice would be to move heaven and earth to get a retrieval tool. Worth their weight in gold.
If the film is exposed - then you don't need to retrieve the leader. Just crack open the cassette in the dark and load it on to your spiral for processing.
Hope this helps.
Just go to the nearest I hour lab and have them take it out, simple.
