Looks pretty good.

I second notion re: steel reels. Plastic reels also have the caveat of
needing to be super dry to let the film slide freely as you load it.

If you're going to be going through much film, it's worth it to buy film in
100 foot spools and use a bulk film loader and reloadable cartridges to
wind your own. I've heard good things about plastic reloadable cartridges
with screw-tops; I think they might hold up a bit better than standard ones
with snap-ends.
