Sorry, Bob. My mistake. I misunderstood your previous post which

I took the the phrase "(which changed at several points)" to
mean, literally, just that. I could not understand why the pitch
would change or be different within the same strip of film! As
you can imagine, the only thing that would come close to
matching that description would, in fact, be unsplit regular
8mm. It would have been 16mm wide but with twice as many
sprocket holes!

Now I understand. Thanks. :)

Was there anything usable (that Santilli didn't keep!) <G>
