OK everyone, here is my crazy idea ..

I was cleaning an old family standard 8mm film. It has these tiny cracks along the edges. I didn't see them but my PecPad would snag slightly. I am concerned about some of them on the perforation side, if they snagged while running...

As I was looking at one, I thought a dab of clear nail polish or super glue should stabilize that.
Of course I could use Tedtors or open the ancient bottle of Kodak's film cement.

So, on a scale of Einstein to padded-room, how crazy is my idea?


I'm an amateur noob. Please be gentle.
