 Carl I had a similar problem long ago and far away.. it was the feed reel ..
the reel was made of steel and it was building up a magnetic field that was dispersing right before the gate where the ionized air nozzle
was blowing charged air across the film.. you said no matter how far fetched.. this problem took us almost a complete shift
to figure out.. Hope this helps
