16mm film reels are about that size. They type used in the camera. Not
exactly obviously but pretty darn close.

Subject: [ARSCLIST] open tape reel inquiry

I'm forwarding the following inquiry. All replies should go directly to John

We are currently working on 1cm wide superconducting tape at the
Superconducting Technology Center here at Los Alamos National Lab. We are
having trouble finding tape reels to archive tape samples ten to twenty
meters long. Here are the dimensions that would be ideal, .4" wide to .5"
wide between the flanges, 1" to 2" hub diameter, and 3.25" total diameter of
flanges. Any material would be acceptable, plastic preferred. Do they

make anything like this? Who would be a good vendor for this type of item?
Any help you can offer is appreciated.
