Your old reel-to-reel 8mm and Super 8 films are degrading. Worse, the memories are fading and the film is becoming more brittle just sitting in the box. Convert your Film into digital now before the memories are lost forever! Introducing the Wolverine Reels2Digital Moviemaker. A very simple to use device that will convert your movie reels into digital movies (no sound) with few strokes. Works like a typical projector where you mount the 3 inch or 5 inch reel, insert a memory card, press few buttons and the apparatus will play the film and scan frame-by-frame to create a digital MP4 movie file that you can play on any computer, you can edit, upload to the internet or burn to DVD's. The Wolverine Reels2Digital Moviemaker pays for itself taking into consideration that photo Labs are charging more than a dollar to digitize a single foot of film! - The largest reel this unit can handle is 5 inches. Unit converts at 30fps, you can use editing software to slow down the scanned footage if you desire (not Included).

The quality of the digital files is good, not great as the system is limited in what it can do to enhance colour, adjust exposure, etc. The main problem I ran into is that it can only handle up to 5" reels and I had many larger ones to digitize. Someone posted earlier on a great solution to have a larger reel on the input (simply affix it to nail on the wall to the left of the built in feeder. However, no solution was given on how to handle the output reel, since the built in can only handle the smaller size. I came up with a solution that worked very well and thought I would share it here since many others expressed interest (it's long, so stop reading here if not interested!). Pictures are attached .
Basically, you need to make the 5" reel thicker by doubling them up and then attach a larger reel onto it so that the reel can avoid the screen/button fixture. You also need to do it in such a way that the reel will move with the original one that is affixed to the output motor that reels it in.
Items: You will need 3 empty reels - the original 5" reel, an additional 5" reel and one that is large enough to match the largest reel you have to record. A long screw driver or thin plastic pipe to act as a tape guard. Thin wire. Electrical tape.
Step 1 - Affix the extra 5" reel to the larger reel using very thin wire through at least two of the middle slots that would normally fit into the motor guides (trick - to ensure alignment, I actually inserted the red cap that came with the machine in between these two reels - I knew I wouldn't need it anymore since I wasn't going to use the input fixture for the remainder of my recordings). Tighten wire with pliers and make sure to snip and tuck the wires well so it doesn't catch on anything - especially the film that will be wrapping around the larger reel. The wire should not cross into ANY area where the tape will be winding so be careful how you do that Also, make sure it's tight enough so both will turn in synch.
Step 2 - Use electrical tape to affix the extra reel to the reel that came with the machine. Your extra reel should be in the middle (mine is red in the picture) so that the original reel is the one that will go directly on the output motor rod. All 3 should end up moving together as it turns and the largest reel should be able to clear the buttons/screen fixure. Make sure of that before starting the recording.
Step 3 - after setting up your input reel (on a nail or using a hollow plastic pipe with screw driver stuck through it as I did), feed the tape in using the the tape guides and the reel input rod in any way that makes it run smoother. On the output side, I fed the tape up around the first tape guide and then used a screwdriver to guide the tape nicely into the larger reel (I affixed it to the top of the machine and braced it in place with a heavy book so it wouldn't make contact with the moving reel). If you make sure the tape is feeding nicely and aligned with the reels on both sides, you shouldn't have any problems. But, it's best to keep a close eye on it at first until you get your setup right!
Hope this long description helps.
