In Need of Spools

By on June 16th, 2010 in Event


A question on Hack A Day asks, “Im looking for someone with a 3d printer to help me manafacture 620 spools for old cameras. Anybody?”
We suspect there just might be some Fabbaloo readers out there that could definitely get this done. Try the link below to get in contact with the questioner if you’d like to help. 
And what is a “620 spool” anyway? Check the Brownie Camera link for more images. According to Wikipedia, 620 format was discontinued in 1995: 
The 620 format was introduced by Kodak in 1931 as an intended alternative to 120. Although mostly used by Kodak cameras, it became very popular. The 620 format is essentially the same film on a thinner and narrower all-metal spool (the 120 spool core was made of wood at that time)
