Julia Nicoll of Colorlab in Rockville, Maryland, shows to make a splice on the 16mm Maier-Hancock "hot" splicer. The splice has an electrical heating unit which dries the film cement quickly. The Maier-Hancock cement splicer creates a better and longer lasting splice than a tape splicer. This cement splicer was commonly used by the negative cutter to make the A&B rolls of a film after the workprint had been edited.
