Changing 120 to 620 film spool

As you can see the 120 is a little bigger than the 620 film spool. The film is the same film on both spools. Some people take cutters and cut the lip off of the edge, then sand it with a file. I took a drill press and let the sanding disk do the work. Then just clean it up with a little light hand sanding. Now some of the cameras can take the 120 spool end to end. But the edge still has to be cut down. I did get some of the cameras to take the bigger slot on the end and it would wind the film but the Jiffy and Brownie six would not work, so I had to move the film from the 120 to a 620 spool and reload the camera. Not fun in the dark. I will now take the 120 spool and clean it up, then fill the end in and make a new slot so it will wind right.
Cover the film roll with painters tape to keep the film clean from dust.
