Hi Adam,
I have to ask... If you only find scratches on the film you develop, is it
not possible some how you are doing the scatching when handling the film?

How do you get the film out of the casset? Pull it out the felt slot or do
you pop the end cap off and take the roll out into hand and load the reel
free hand?

And did you only have one roll scratched in the R8, the one the lab said
"they found it?" Or have you had many rolls scratched in the same R8?  And
if so, have you "louped" the pressure plate looking for anything that might
cause this? Because if you've only had one roll scratched in your R8 it
leaves a great deal of doubt that it was the camera.
