Hewes HW120 overview

  • 1Description

The Hewes 120 Stainless Steel Developing Reel takes much of the stress out of darkroom work. It is both easy to load and will take much of the demands of the darkroom. It features an easy loading sprocket system that separates this reel from other similar, less expensive reels. The center spring clip holds your film firmly in place as you wind it on.

Hewes HW120 reviews

120 Stainless Steel Developing Reel is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this reel I know, it's just a film reel, and it's on the pricey side.I was looking for a manual loading reel (I've never had consistent luck with the plastic self-loading type) for processing my own film at home.During a film photography class at the local community college, I was able to attempt to use several different types of reel, and was never particularly happy with any of them. I could always think of a better design, and was even considering the idea of making my own.I ordered this one, hoping that it would work for me. Not only did it arrive _straight_, it includes minor design improvements I had considered; including a spring setup that makes sense in the dark.The spring is firm enough to get the film started, but not so tight that you have to wrestle with it; and the film pretty much rolls itself on.I'm going to be ordering at least one more of these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Cinch to Load It's true - this reel is much easier to load and here's why. It's all about getting proper alignment when you clip the film end to the center hub of the reel. If your film is lined up right, the edges will fall into the edge coils easily as you turn it. My old reel (on the left in the pic) has a clip that doubles on itself, so you can only clip onto the last 1/8 inch of the film before it bottoms out. This leaves the film to pivot, so getting a good alignment is not easy to confirm in the dark. This reel (on the right) has a much improved clip orientation - you slide the film (from right to left in both) and the clip allows the film to be deeply inserted past it so you can feel the free edge with your other hand. With so much film engaged by the clip, it's almost impossible to not have good alignment. Great design!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply The BEST Metal Reels! Who would think different metal reels can make a difference, but they can! Do not waste your money on cheaper reels. Yes, the Hewes reels will cost you, but so will wrongly processed film. In the past using cheaper metal reels I have bent film and worst ever, ruined rolls due to improper placement on the reel after numerous tries and practicing for a couple of days with a roll at my desk between tasks. The Hewes reels are just simpler to use. It has to be in the engineering because these reels make it so much easier. Forget the other brands, get Hewes for peace of mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent reel, very durable i am a big fan of hewes products, some may be turned off by the price yet the durability of their products lasts for years!! I've had my 35 mm reels for 15 years.. still perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 120mm Reel I've Used I have always been a fan of the SS reels, but the spring on this one works much better than the cheap reels. I did try the plastic reels, but with some of the 120mm films, I could hear them binding up while this reel is quiet and smooth. Now if I could only find a SS tank that doesn't leak.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More expensive but worth it. I was finding difficulty in loading 120 reels without having parts of the film in contact. I'm not sure exactly what Hewes is doing differently, but it loads easily and without any problems. It also appears stronger and well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best. Simply the best. The superior clip in the center of these reels functions vastly better than any other 120 reel I've ever used. Do not hesitate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best reel I own I have many reels and not all of them are made equally. This particular reel has performed perfectly with the last 5 rolls of film, no problems
