Positive is what I love more than anything. I should probably just figure out how to get it done
Do you have your 35mm slides mounted when you get your E6 processed? If you are going to process your own E6, the cutting/mounting part by hand is not easy.

Occasionally, but more often than not recently I've been leaving them just cut in 6-strips. Seems a bit wrong, but I can always mount later if I choose.

Any tips (or good guides) for bulk loading? I've been thinking about giving it a go for a while, but as a digital native it seems like a pretty intimidating process!

I strongly recommend use of a good quality electrical tape to attach the film to the spool.
3M Scotch Super 33+ can be peeled off easily and won't leave any adhesive residue.

Masking tape can fail at rolls end, especially when using motorized advance.
I learned this the hard way. Helluva way to abruptly end a day's shooting...

Cleanliness counts...take care to keep your loader dust free.

Replace your cassettes on the first evidence of worn felt.

Don't overfill. The cassettes are designed for 36 exposures max.

IMO a can of compressed air is a photographer's best friend.

Worn felt or foreign material stuck in the felt can result in scratched negatives.
I used to replace mine after just a few uses but reloadable cassettes are much harder to find now.

You need to start with

Darkroom or

Bulk loader and changing bag

Watson film loader instruction manual, user manual, PDF manual, free manuals

Get bulkfilm length or cine can

If you have a camera with a base plate latch it may accept bespoke relloadable cassettes without velvet, eBay.

Otherwise buy new or visit local mini lab with large plastic bin bag.
