Hey, neat new pics! Even the expired film looks good on my monitor. Your Baby is a keeper!
Yeah, I think $1200 is too steep too, although the one he saw sounds like a real nice example. But they're readily available without the box and goodies for a lot less.
I am going to tackle slicing 120 film down to 127 size. I tried a cigar cutter.... With so-so results. I could never tell when I'd cut far enough. And then I found the blade tended to "drift" and make the roll get wider and wider as the blade cut deeper. I need to give this some more thought. I think something similar to a miter box with single-edge razor blades might work.
