Really wish I could help you here Thomas, but it's got me baffled as well. All my Super 8 stuff is pretty old. I stopped buying in the early 80s. I have had trouble with one reel of 16mm, when I try to rewind it's uneven and it won't fit back on the reel, sounds similar to your problem. I had to put it on an old machine and rewind by hand. I couldn't see anything wrong with the reel, so don't know why rewinding is a problem. Forgive me asking in case you have already mentioned this, but does this happen with every film, or only some. If you had a spare 400ft reel you could try rewinding on to that and see what happens. I hope you can sort it, the last thing you want is to have to buy 600ft reels for every film.

Try mounting the projector upside down on a board. Then the film should sag back on to the reel. You'll have to lay on your back facing the screen [set5_b/set5_b/banghead.gif]

There is, of course, the "platter on a plank" winding and stretching technique, perfected by a member of another forum.
