I have a great feature film on cores and I need to get it onto reels, so I am thinking of using a split reel, but have you seen the prices!!!!!! Therefore has any one made a 16mm split reel, if yes what is the procedure , and do you have images. Cheers and thanks
In your case Mark I have included a thread that shows how I created a DIY split reel to do exactly what you want. I have since purchased a split reel...but this DIY technique got the job done for me. Maybe it will help you

I purchased my split reels as part of a lot on eBay a few years ago. Seems as though lots always sell lower than single items. So they worked out to about US$12 each, and I even sold one off that I didn't need, bringing the cost down further.
In other words, look long enough and I'm sure you can get legit split reels at a reasonable cost.
