Short 16mm Film Rewinds

When editing 16mm motion picture film, you need a way to wind it between reels. Normally this is done with a pair of large geared cranks called “rewinds”. But what about something small and portable for animation, handmade films, etc? I designed this short rewind to comfortably handle 100ft daylight spools up to 400ft reels. Print 2 to make a perfect editing setup with a Moviscop and splicer.

Print Short_16mm_Rewind_allparts.stl for one complete rewind, or print the included STLs for individual components. The stand is designed to accommodate a large “A-clamp” so you can clamp it to a desk. The OpenSCAD design files are included, so you can modify it easily.
