You can now trim the excess dubbing and thread out. The dubbing will come out of the waste loop easily to be re used on the next one.

Another method would be to just act as if you were making a new dubbing loop with the excess dubbing in the new loop. Wrap back and forth over the loop as you would normally in order to close the top. Then cut off the loop.

In effect, this is what Alan is suggesting but it may save a little time.
