If you have a small budget, these loopers work well and are designed to fit
on Eikis.

The teflon is so the print doesn't scratch as fast. It's not totally
necessary, but helps a little. I haven't found a place in US in awhile to
do it. There's also something called Film Guard - see film-tech.com--that
works but you have to use it sparingly near tape splices as it will dissolve
them. It works great to remove base scratches but isn't exaclty archival.
