More Clips, Please

We need some more (a lot more) of the little black metal clips like the one shown here.
You can send them to our address

New55

It might be a while before we can have these made commercially so salvage and re-use is in order.  The clips come right off old Pol sheet films with the application of heat - like a very hot hair dryer or a heat gun. Be careful if you do this so you don't get burned. Otherwise the entire sheet after processing can be sent. Old, expired, dried-out, exposed, surplus or just lying around, we need them now!

And thanks to those who have already sent some.

hi Bob, these clips, do we find them only on 4x5 films? I'm using old polaroid 669 and fuji fp100, I suppose they don't have what your're looking for.

Correct, these are just on the sheet film, and also on Kodak Readyloads. It's a part that gets tossed away. We know how to get them made, but haven't made the dollar jump that will require for tooling and setup. If we can get enough in the meantime we can direct our efforts toward the receiver paper and the pods, as these are going to require some real engineering.
