Goodness ⎯ What Is This?
Winner of most unique splice award
One day, we came upon the most unique 8mm film splicing technique ever used -- a staple. It sure made us laugh!
In all the years of seeing the various film splice work that our customer's have done, the use of thin metal was something that really surprised us. Hey - it worked for them in the moment but would not do in our equipment.
With each reel, we carefully check all splice for integrity. If we find them broken, weakened or exceedingly poorly done, we replace three per reel -- FREE of charge.
If more splices are needed, in order to affect a nice transfer, we charge a nominal fee for additional needed repairs. Most reels don't require more than three, if that.
And the "runner up" award goes to ...... user of white "first-aid" cloth tape (long since turned brown.)
