Recently I have been developing B/W film. It was thirteen dollars to order these clips online. So I decided to make my own. These are to prevent the negatives from curling and having water marks, they are for use after washing with wetting agent.

Step 1: Materials

Paper clips or wire.
Binder clip.
A weight, I used a roll of electrical tape.
Wire cutters and scissors.
Film that needs drying.
this is really clever! i have been using clothes pins, which sometimes pull the emulsion from the film. <br /> <br />If only 120 film had sprocket holes!
You could always poke small holes in the 120 mm.
$13 seems expensive for what you could go to a hobbystore and buy a roll of &quot;thick metal wire&quot; to make. <br> <br>I am guessing that most of the price is the delivery cost? or are these rather basic metal parts very expensive? <br> <br>Delivery costs is imho the hobbyists bane. if you &quot;just&quot; need a couple of small things, like 99% of the times. I think that goes for almost any hobby
It was the shipping price that was rediculous.
In my disgust over prices I completely forgot to say how I like this, so simple and saves money. Thumps up! (and also extra bonus for &quot;recycling&quot; the clips)
