Latest offering from a rock legend in Mountain Home. A 16mm Tuscan reel converted to 8mm. Described as 'Rare', well, it would be. Secondly, described as professionally altered. I wonder who this professional was?; sounds like a breach of the Trades Description Act. Note the hub is off centre, this may account for the screws not being equally placed. Any takers.

Oh my what a nice professional job! [set5_b/set5_b/icon_bs.gif] Yes it looks like the hub is concentric to the O.D. of the reel. NOT!

Nice find, Robert! I guess those royalty checks are allowing extra time for new entrepreneurial endeavors [set5_b/set5_b/iamwithstupid.gif] Last time I checked, three 400' Marketing films equaled 1200' [set5_b/set5_b/iamwithstupid.gif] It's listed in the 16mm category and it doesn't state it has been converted to 8mm or super 8. Looks like a core has been placed in the hub area, there also appears to be a super 8 reel adapter in the middle. What kind of dumb ass concoction is this???

I wonder if he used the invisible core? [set5_b/set5_b/smilielol5.gif]

Thought you would enjoy that one Dan; I never noticed that 3x400 = 1200ft; so really it's of no use to anyone. Wonder what he will come up with next?

[set5_b/set5_b/smilielol5.gif] [set5_b/set5_b/smilielol5.gif] [set5_b/set5_b/smilielol5.gif] I hope that reel of film is not from The Life And Times Of Man Bear Pig.

Why doesn't he just say it's an empty reel up for auction? His auction description is kinda confusing.

I think that's done on purpose.
