I did not even know there was a mounter available. I just use scissors
and  my  gloved hands. Kinda slow but I can see no way to scratch them
doing  this.  I  only  mount  the  ones I like (I mount my B&W negs to
print). If I am shooting chrome I have them done at one of the labs in
town.  They  just got new machines and are VERY particular about their
chems...They  do mostly their own film so they keep a really close eye
on the stuff, better I think than the labs that do tons of 35mm.

In  college  we  used to use the Pakons with out a mounter...hence the
slide  and  scratch  name I gave them.  I discovered the Polaroid back
them and really like the easy way they work.
