Ah, Excellent. Yes, if you don't have a spare spool, printing one is a great way to get started. When you're done, you'll have the spool that the first roll of film came wrapped around. For the OSKAR 6x6 or 6x9, turning the one knob is usually fine, but with a printed and glued spool, it may be prudent to be gentle and use both knobs to avoid breaking the uptake spool. The 6x6 can actually load on either side. I oriented the arrow to wind on the right. The 6x9 MUST wind on the left or the index numbers will be messed up.
