Spacing between rewinds on a rewind bench?

Jon Taala

Recommended Posts

This may be a dumb question, but I'm new to editing physically on film so....


What is the standard length of space between film rewinds? I just bought a pair of moviola rewinds and I want to mount them, but I can't for the life of me find any information online on how far they should be spaced. I read from a source on ebay that the standard spacing is 33 inches apart but I don't know how credible that source was.


If anyone knows the standard spacing between rewinds, your help would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

I had a rewind bench in my basement before it got wiped out by Hurricane Sandy. I forget the exact amount of space between them, but it was definitely less than 33". I'd say maybe 26". And I still had plenty of room to put the 4-gang synchronizer in-between them.
