Step 1: Gather the following tools and items...
>1 roll of 35mm film (in a metal container)
>Scissors, pen, knife or a hard and flat metallic item
I only had to use scissors, but it took a while to do the job.
Step 2: Remove film from roll
Step 3: Break open the roll canister
Step 4: Remove the spool
Remove the spool from the canister and cut out the tape and the film.
As you do this, look closely at the spool to check for any possible damage.
