Red face Frame saving detachable leader. Peter Elgar Video.

I use bulk film rolls to save the odd penny.
Recently watching an old Youtube video by Peter Elgar, he was saving a couple of frames by adding a reusable length of film for the leader.
I do the same trick myself.
I was tickled that he has the same struggle as I do to hold the film length and extra leader in line when joining them together with Sellotape strips.
He said an extra pair of hands would be handy.
I found the extra pair of hands in the form of a steel rule and some notice board magnets.
Both films are held down to the steel rule with the magnets, lined up and can then be let go of whilst the taping process is undertaken.

The pictures show the set up.

Hardly headline news, but it does save on the sweary words.

Cheers.
