Hello again -

What is:

1. A split reel (Is that the reels with the open walls/sides?)?

2. A rewinder

2B. A "tight wind"

Thanks for the expertise guys! I'm just going to keep asking Q's until you find my address and kill me in my sleep :)

1. Yep, a split reel has the two halves, so you can put a spool of film on it, then lock the side on to put on the reminds.

2. A rewinder is the thing with a handle & spindle on it (you need a pair) to wind the film from one spool to another, these days usually just used to make 100ft reels out of 400 foot reels, etc.

3. A tight wind I guess is... winding the film tight?

Do an ebay search if you want to see what they look like. There are usually some for sale there...

I thought that was the name for the outrigger arm on some of the older rewinds, that kinda rides on the outside of the roll. Looks like it was intended to let you wind up on a core WITHOUT a aplit reel, but I have never seen one up close to judge.
