Can anyone recommend someone for repair/maintenance work on Eiki/Elf 16mm projectors in the UK? Bill Parsons did work for me before, but he doesn't have availability soon. One of these machines can wait, but I'd like to have the other one in good shape before the christmas break.

Kevin Brown has done an excellent job on my Bell and Howells. I seem to think he does other projectors also. Give him a call on 0115 9113125 MOBILE 07970 851866. His website is K.B. Electronics. He's in Nottingham. Check his number hasn't changed.

Yes and the nice thing about Kevin is that he will always have the time to talk with you and gives an honest appraisal, as far as he can, without seeing the job. Never heard a bad report of his work either. Very much recommended by all that have used him.

Knowing Kevin's reputation in relation to Eiki's, I have one or two that I'd like him to fix, so in the unlikely situation that anyone is driving to him during the next few months and could stop off in Croydon and kindly take one or two more projectors, please let me know! It would be good to take no chances with couriers and I would of course contribute to petrol costs.

Kevin has recently put a new worm in my Bell & Howell which was starting to get noisy. Now, with also a new oil wick, it just purrs. I have known Kevin for over eleven years. He keeps my collection in great condition.

I would like to add my praise for Bill Parsons. He completely rebuilt the amp for my Debrie D16 earlier this year and it sounds superb. Valve amplifier expertise it seems, is a rare commodity these days and he is a very nice chap to deal with.
