: Hello, I am disgusted by the rarity of viewmaster type mounts (reels) I think someone who has the technology should make an alternative slide mount like a realist sized mount with two aperatures just the right size to put a viewmaster camera chip pair into. Sure it wouldn't be round but us vm fanatics would be able to get some of our investment back for these way overpriced but highly loveable cameras.Also why hasn't somebody come out with an alternative and affordable film chip cutter that is new and sharp.Even nicer here for you idea people how about a conversion kit for the way cheap Nishika and Nimslo cameras to make them able to produce vm film chip size slide chips. Some of us are not wealthy but we still have dreams of childhood looking at the VM reels and enjoying them wishing we could get a VM camera and then getting older and older and not being able to afford or find one....make our dreams come true somebody...anybody
I have read threads about HOW fischer-price will or will not make new reels for personal viewmaster cameras. I have the model II which should last a long time and the cutter. I purchased the cutter at olden camera and lens and years later they GAVE
me the few remaining reels!
