It's not easy from the looks of it. Not only must the film be cut.
old 127 paper must be reused or new backing paper made up. The film
must also be attached to the backing paper at a defined point. I'm sure
it's possible, but a lot of trouble for only a few rolls. If someone set
up that was reliable there maybe a small market for it. This subject
has been talked about on this list before. Rich
