The Demolux shown is a Japanese Hukushin SC-210, either made in Germany under licence or imported direct with a name change by the German company.

What links are you referring to James? Is it the Jaws and Alfred Hitchcock films?

The links worked for me.
Two Super 8 magnetic films from Australia on Buy It Now.
Jaws 2 x 400 = AU$299 (GBP £146)
Psycho 1 x 400 = AU$225 (GBP £110)

Yes me too! That's why I asked the question. I wouldn't have thought it possible.

I think this hobby is just out of control now, and it's prices/people like this that will kill it.
Maybe $800 but not 2k.

You are right of course Jason, but then again there are many that would never pay $800 for one film. So I think it's all relative and once someone pays £1100 for a 8mm print, then before you know it someone is commanding $2000 for this type of rare print on a larger gauge.

The only way things settle at sensible levels is if the buyer doesn't get a sale at those prices.

I must say I would never and could never pay that much for a film print. And it isn't even the fact of what title. I have always rated APOCALYPSE NOW as a great film and a favourite and that appeared as a new condition 16mm print this year but it was about US$1500 if I remember rightly. It was the 'Redux' version too so a newer print for sure, ( although I prefer the shorter version, ) but no, I'm not in that top end league even for a favourite film...

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Super-8-mm-Sound-and-Silent-Collection-/131571200095?h ash=item1ea241305f

Check this one out....pretty big lot...
I guess the price is not bad if you factor in what the reels and cases are worth. A lot of good titles all at once....

The listing qualifies as odd in the sense that it is odd these days to see an not-so-bad listing.... [Smile] The shipping is only $20, but the import charges out of the US are over $147.00- That is CRAZY!!!!

Anyone fancy taking on this project? A step too far methinks (for me anyway).

The seller quotes the re-wound motor as "three-phase 220 volts* which sounds a contradiction.
Perhaps a more knowledgeable member could elucidate.

A 3ph motor fed with 415v across the phases but connected in delta only actually gives (have to say it as there are no symbols) root three of the voltage to each of the phases which is 415 divided by 1.732 = 240v if that's what he is getting at?

Thanks, Andrew,
That's, more or less (!), what I thought. Not much of a restoration project for eventual use at home on single phase. I suppose a scrap Debrie motor could be found.
It all sounds a pretty worthless project. (Although I know of one person who might have a go if the price was right.)

Unless this is a 'special' - Debrie 16's are 110Volt and from the look of the motor it looks like the standard motor which is definitely 110v.

The badge from the projector in one picture states
Alimentation
Lampe 115V mono - 50
Excitarice 10V 7.5 amp
Moteur 220v tri - 50

So looks like it is a 3 phase motor. If my French is not too bad.

Well spotted Brian. Probably a more powerful motor because it is a double band machine?. It also states type DB so not the same spec as a D16. It also has a separate exciter lamp whereas the D16 uses light diverted from the main projection lamp. If anyone fancies taking on the project I have some of those exciter lamps.

Come on! Think about it! £500 for a kit of parts to build a machine that cannot be used for it's designed purpose (even if it is complete and all components fully functional)?
It's a double band machine..... lots of double band prints still available? Lots of 16mm double band magnetic stock still available? What do you do with after you've put it together?
The only use I can see is as a display item.... but £500?????

Any one with money to throw around?

Quite right Martin. That's why I posted it under the Ebay Oddities. I cannot imagine anyone wanting to take it on, let alone pay that sort of money for it. As you say, there are bound to be bits missing anyway and who would want the finished article. From the look of it some parts are not in very good order either. I have a D16 but compared to that lot mine is pristine, complete and working. Any offers? [Roll Eyes]

Can you believe some people! It looks to have been hand painted at some time too.

Every time I try to look at them I get:
This listing (7504151579) has been removed, or this item is not available.
Never seen one yet.

I think you must be looking at some of the old postings. The last two I posted are still there.

Yet another Debrie comes out of the woodwork! And a messed up one at that. A hideous paint job for whatever reason, and what is it standing on? No mention of a transformer, or speaker, on any connecting leads.

A further surprise is the plate which states that is 50/60 cycles.

From the rather poor photographs it looks like one of the later grey models that could slide in and out of its amplifier. I seem to recall that there was a choice of three amps with differing outputs.

Having said all that, would there be any point in anyone actually buying it?
