OK, Michael, I took a look, and straight away there are some cheap ways to aquire some 50' spools.....well done....job done...
I'm clearly off my game with eBay . But the idea stands, it's normally, I think, useful to point straight to the URLs leading to the websites we may just have being reffering to.
I'm sure there are plenty once one learns how to find them. The other idea that came to mind was to cut a 100' spool in a lathe, but I can't remember if the dimensions are the same at the centre, so may not work....

If I get the order for hundred spools, I start making them. According to the standard, black lacquered aluminum
Could then also make such for 9.5mm film and other sizes. I have a Filmo Straight Eight but no spools for it, so
that is still another project.

They have a round hole on one side and come in a can. I have 4, more than enough doing what I do. They are very convenient to develop in a Lomo UPB 1-A tank. And 50 feet fits with wiggle room on the Russian drying rack. They are much easier to reload than 50 foot magazines.

Some rolls of DoubleSuper-8mm film (e g FOMApan) are still sold on 50ft/10 meter daylight metal spools, from for example FOTOIMPEX, Berlin, Germany:
They also stock the same film on 100ft/30 meter daylight metal spools, NOT the plastic spool kind often found in the Russian K-3 cameras!
