For the use with moving picture machines,
especially of the type designed for home use, it is
5 desirable to have reels that are light in weight,
but which are rigidly constructed, and therefore
it is customary to employ aluminum for this pur
pose. Since aluminum is a soft metal that is not
very well. adapted to resist severe strains and

Anotm ?ject is to construct a moving picture

positioned that it will receive the strains and
