That's why I ordered resuable ones. Both the end caps can be removed and the light-traps spread apart enough to clean 'em out on occasion. I've known people to try to skimp and use factory cans and they tape their loaded film onto the little bit of film left sticking out of the cans from processing. Those can't be opened up and reassembled.
I didn't mean skip loading your own, just using the actual loader. Grab a dark room, lay out your cannister, roll off ~6' (or whatever length you want) and wind it up.
That would be peachy-keen.
If I had a darkroom...........
I used to load mainly short rolls of 10 to 12 frames. Even shorter if I was trying something out.
The price of 100 feet of Tri-X just went up to $100, which means for that film, it's just as economical if not cheaper to just buy in pre-rolled bricks. But for other films, it's definitely a cheaper way to go. I'm glad I started bulk loading. And I've got 100-feet rolls of HP5 on my wish list so hopefully my family will get the hint and get me a few
Bathroom, at night, lights off?
Cover up the skylight
Easier said than done........ when they're recessed into the ceiling.
I get that some people think a bulk loader is a hassle, but at a certain point, isn't it just as much of a hassle to only roll at night in the bathroom after blocking skylights?
Better give it away. It's clearly too much for you to handle.
