Boy, does that bring back memories. I didn't know film could rewind that
fast! It is even scarier, however, when the film is negative, and the device
is an old Mark III. Rule number one for anyone I ever trained was to remove
all tape from the ends of reels. To those of you that are "too busy to
thread with out using tape on the core", just visualize how fast a reel of
film can travel on a out of control servo driven device.
