Does anyone have information on obtaining 16mm take-up spools for a K3? Also, are take-up spools universally fitted (can I use the same spools on a Bolex, Eclair, and a K3?) I'm new to the 16mm community and any info regarding this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Should be universal. Check with a lab that processes 16mm. They'll probably be happy to give them to you.

As far as the K3 goes, if I remember correctly it takes daylight spools and I think you just need an empty spool, same as the one on the feed side. You should also be able to get these at any lab. I am not sure about the other camera's you mentioned but if you use daylight loads its probably much of the same.

hope this was helpful.

You are looking for a 100-foot, 16mm, R-90 spool:

Thanks to everyone for their prompt and informed responses. I'll check some labs to see if they have some spools laying around. Also, that Kodak link tickled my synapses... lots-o-good/valuable information. Much obliged!
