To save yourself from blindly advancing the film, I suggest with the lid just about
closed (this mostly for shorter people), shine the flashlight from the inside out through
If you can see the flashlight through the film, you'll be able to see the glowing metal
source. The flashlight is conveniently small enough to make this an easy check.

Subject: Film on order for View Port OK to use
Jim Haydon is still finding too many blank areas on the film for the Polarized window.
We are going through the
film too fast. Here is a clue, If you turn the knob clockwise less than a quarter
turn and you still can't see,
IT'S NOT THE FILM. It would be another problem / reason that you can see. Check the
shutter knob for the polarized window is in the right position, make sure that the shutter
in the chamber has the opening in front.
We should have more film by tomorrow, but Jim has found some areas of the old roll of
film that will allow us to run for a week (two feet worth).
