Hi Mark, I have what I believe is one of the later 16-CL’s. It has been serviced before, but that was probably a long time ago. It’s pretty dusty inside and could definitely use a brush off, and of course those rollers have gone gummy. Bulb and everything else works great still. Private message me if you’re still interested.

Hi Scot well I would be in you were in the UK thank you.

The Rollers and amp dry joints seem to be a given on CLs.

Well the joints seem to be an issue in all 16mm Elmos often.

Really looking for a good UK or EU one if possible, but thank you very much.

Best Mark.

Best Mark.

Getting a bit desperate as mine now needs a really good service, I don`t think its ever had one.

I could also go for a really quiet NT 1 or similar.

Also advice on where to get my CL done would be very handy.

Kevin from Nottingham does`nt do them.

Best Mark.Thanks.

Mark, wouldn't it be just cheaper to get another machine? The Eiki's are good and theirs loads about for sale. [Wink]
