Beautiful machine; can't wait to hear about your experience. Instructions? A pro like you? You don't need no stinking instructions!

True, but one thing i need to ask is simply this, should i set the voltage to 220v or the 250(with a small 8 under it)?
I dont want to blow it up before i use it. We normally use 240

I would definitly go for 250 v. I don't think the bulb would blow up if the projector is set at 220 v but it would definitly last less longer than normal. Most of the projector are set on a higher voltage than the one used in the area they're sold (240 v instead of 220 for example) in order to protect the bulb so I guess there must be a good reason for that.

Thank you Dominique.
Mark, it was a little more than i wanted to pay but it came from Van Eck services so i know it had been through test and checks and comes with a few months warranty.(a tad over 400)

Lee, i was looking for this but it only seems to have either 220 or 250

Congratulations Tom! [Wink] [Big Grin]

Set it to 240v to start with, measure the voltage at the lamp terminals, if 15v or slightly higher say 15.3v then leave it at that, but if not, adjust down to no lower than 220v until you obtain 15v at the lamp terminals.

I've had a couple of these now and the transformer tappings do vary somewhat to obtain the correct voltage at the lamp.

Don't worry so long as you do not exceed 15.5v at the lamp, you will do no harm to the lamp or the rest of the machines internals.

As Dominique says if you under excite the lamp then it will last a whole lot longer but at the expense of losing a whole lot of brightness in some cases.

At 15.3v I have been getting at least 50hours from mine which is all they're rated for.

Don't exceed 15.5v, the lamp won't last five minutes and you may then be at the point of overstressing the rest of the electronics.

Thats unusual, they usually have 240 and others on as well.

But 250 will fit the bill nicely. Definately the better of the 2.

Uk Voltage still tends to vary between about 230 and 240.

Best Mark.

Mine both have 240, 220 & 200 volt tappings then a bunch of Euro tappings around 120.

Ones set to 240v and the other is set to 220v. Both give 15v to the lamp at these settings.

There is no English instructions available for these just German and French. Make friends with a German, that's my advice Tom! [Big Grin]

Most things I've either worked out myself or translated from the manual or in some instances had assistance on here from the good guys like Doug etc.

Either way, we'll work it for you Tom, no drama. [Wink]

The lead you require is a 5pin din to two phono connectors red and white coloured. This is all you actually need for either slaving out or on another instance feeding in from say a mixer and a laptop for recording purposes.

You can get a 4 phono plug version but on the Bauers two phono is really all you need.

[Embarrassed] oh-oh, Scilly me, i was so excited i didn't open my eyes properly, it does have 240. Sorry all.
I have wapped a 200 footer through and the first thing you have to notice,(as many people have said), is how unbelievably quite this machine runs. Fantastic, very very pleased. A lot of the buttons will be wasted on me as i dont get involved in recording but then its good to look at [Big Grin] .
Also will add that i will never give up on my Elmo's, they have served me for over 30 years. The sound is certainly a winner on the Elmo but as i put my films through an external amp this is not a big deal.
Elmo advantage/ Very easy to get to everything for servicing and repairs, very study metal construction, easy to get film out at any time during a show, simple lens swing to clean the gate. Instruction in English and i have an Elmo workshop repair manual.
Bauer/ Great lens with excellent light output and very sharp image. Very quite running, full stereo rather that just twin track playback, many extra gadgets for those who record, much more modern design. We will keep both the Elmo's to call on for our 1200 foot features and mini features as well as any shows we do outside of our home. After 30 years they deserve a rest, i use a projector for at least 2-4 hours a week, often more.
All in all, i am very pleased with my purchase and will probably be calling on many of you chaps for your expert advise as being Elmo orientated i know very little about this machine at this stage.

I will also publicly thank Mr Woodcock for the very informative video on a stick which shows me the basic "how to" for the maintenance. Brilliant, got any more? [Big Grin] [Wink]

Just ask whatever whenever Tom, always happy to help one of our true ambassadors of the gauge! [Wink]

I know you have no desire at this stage to record Tom and that is fair enough, but if you heard the results from doing so, you would be amazed! The results are often stunning on a decent stripe.

Maybe food for thought for the future perhaps.

The more you use these machines,the more you grow to simply adore them! They are just Sooo gentle on film.

Well done Tom, they are nice machines and knew you'd be impressed, I too like the Elmo's but using a Bauer puts them to shame noise wise, enjoy it, Mark

Hi Tom,
i do live in Germany and i own only bauer projectors. I have had the Elmos but for some reason i could do without them and finally sold them. The Bauers (T50, T60, T510) give me exactly what i need.
And they make those who arent so familiar with our hobby be interested!
Congratulations for your new purchase, in case you need any help concerning translation don't hesitate to ask.

The T610 is the dogs dodah's Janice. If I could get a two /three bladed adjustable shutter sent to me, I may...just may, prefer it to the Beaulieu Stereo for its quietness and film handling exceptional qualities. It really is that good!

It really is the very best projector when used in the home environment with a long play unit.

I cannot wait until LED technology evolves sufficiently to gain the brightness I get from the Beaulieu on one of these, even with it's 3 blade shutter.

The Goko RM8008 Stereo, Guaranteed as being the only machine quieter or as good with the handling of film as The Bauer T610! [Smile]

A Big public Thank You to Kevin Clark for supplying me with my missing knob on this machine! [Wink]

This forum has been truly superb to me for connecting all of our distant collectors together and I cannot thank Doug and Brad enough for this facility! [Smile]

I bought a used Bauer T610 over 5 years ago, and its the best projector I've ever used. Enjoy Tom!
