I have got a nice Yelco DS-800 projector that is Super 8 mm and I want to transform into a regular 8 mm projector. Would you help me to find the wheels I need and which ones do I have to change.Thanks for your help.
-and it looks to me like this is a Super-8 only machine.
-The gate aperture is the wrong size -the claw is the wrong shape -The sprockets are the wrong shape. -The distance between the gate and the sound heads is wrong (only matters if your R8 films are sound ones)
(What else did I forget???)
So we're looking at a pretty complex conversion here.
The good news is it looks like a pretty nice machine. I'm curious how it stacks up against Eumigs and Elmos of similar specs.
