Hello there, I'm looking for around 50 plastic, 400ft, 16mm cans. Does anyone have a large number they'd sell me?
Best, Lydia

Hi Lydia,

You can still get them new in as large numbers as you want for very reasonable prices:

Hello Lydia

Just to add to Rob's excellent advice - you won't find better service than you get from PEC anywhere and the beauty of their brand new cans is you will have no marker writing, sticky labels or other nasties to remove which are often part and parcel of used ones however well looked after.

Make sure you measure the diameter of your reels as well as the sizes PEC sell sometimes refer to films on cores rather than reels - in this case they quote the can diameter as 180mm so just over 7 inches.

I would suggest you email or 'phone PEC first as they will confirm the suitability of the can size to your reels and give you a lead time for your order - in my case over the past few years I've bought a couple hundred cans from them and when not in stock it only took a few days for them to fulfil the order.

They also stock leaders, splicing tape, etc. again at the best prices I've seen.

Please let us know how you get on.
