I was thinking about those reloadable Russian Kacema carts and wondering if anyone here has any experience with them.Are there any stability issues?Breathing in the gate?Dust and such?Cost in terms of bulk stock with the advantage being you would have more options in raw stock choices.Anyone do this regularly?

It has also been a pet project dream of mine (don't ask why,haven't even decided if I want to pursue any of this)to possible mag stripe some raw stock in a darkroom and hand load some old Agfa sound carts.Anyone have experience with sound stripers?Do any models add the balence stripe or do multiple formats?I'm considering attempting it for 16mm as well for use in an old Auricon or CP 16.

I know,some things may be better left to die off naturally.Try to humor me. :P
