Anyone know how to convert the rear arm on Sankyo 702 to accept 800 ft reels…they say its possible.

Hi Lee,
It can be done quite easily,if you can find the end shute on the film path from a 800 machine it will fit straight on,i think it's one screw to undo and swap over,Mark.

Hi Lee,You could modify the original one,the arms on the machine are the same size as the 800 so it's just the film path end shute that stops the 800ft spools from going on,Mark.

In the motor strong enough to handle the 800' full reel?

Thanks
