Just a quick question-- I have no experience with these machines-- do they have inching knobs, like the Bolex and Eumig projectors, where you can actually access them?

Just what projectors do? The big Bauers? Elmos?

Most of the Bauer projectors have inching knobs as far as I know, and the top-end Elmos - the ST-1200HD for sure (not certain about the 1200 and 1200D models) and probably the GS1200, since it has every bell and whistle there is. [Wink]
My Sankyo Stereo-800 has one as well - I don't know about Chinons, though...

Call me Phoenix. *dusts off the ashes*

I have sound Chinons 330, 7500 & 8500.

None have inching knobs.

All have a red on/off push-in knob on the left hand rear panel which could be mistaken in a photograph for an inching knob.
