As of Friday, there is no stock available to purchase. In the past, backorders for discontinued products have gone unfulfilled.

 

This creates a huge problem for A-Minima owners. The custom 200' spools have a finite life. Once they lose their flex, they are no longer light tight. 

 

Kodak does not sell empty A-Minima spools, although they must have at some point because an Ebay seller of an A-Minima a year or two ago included a case of new empty spools. 

 

A-Minima film is delivered in 200' 35mm cans. Kodak recently discontinued 200' loads of 35mm film and empty 200' cans are no longer listed. This creates another, though admittedly trivial, problem for A-Minima users.

 

Does anyone know how to communicate with Kodak in the context of getting them to produce a one-time large batch of spools? Or selling injection molding dies for a product which they have discontinued?

 

Regards,
