Re: [Frameworks] using cores in a bolex/breaking down SE to daylight spools

100 ft. fills a daylight spool. 120 ft. will fall off the sides.

When it's just short of flush with the edge.

Probably best to split those in half. If you put those on cores (~60 ft. ea) you should be fine.

> Since a core is a bit wider than a daylight spool does anyone know what maximum short end size I can use without trouble?

Sheesh. Get some slug and figure it out yourself.
