I have recently bought a Bauer T502 in a carrying case and instruction book (in German), but the separate film trimmer is missing. The book's illustrations show the film trimmer but does not show what cut it makes.

Can someone please tell me what cut the projector likes? 1) curved end, 2) corners cut at angles, 3) straight across. If the latter, where to cut.

Dovetailed Maurice, and its important that it is.
Certainly not a beveled edge anyhow like the Elmo cut.

As the cutter cuts the chamfered edges at 45 degrees, the sprocket hole should be half a frame away from the edges of the chamfer.

The Beaulieu models require this same cut to an even greater extent.

I may have an electronic English version of the manual if you'd ever require a copy btw.

You should have a built in cutter on your Beaulieu that is identical in the cut it produces, to the one missing from your Bauer projector btw Maurice.

Many thanks, Andrew, for your help.
With a "posh" projector like the Bauer one would think that the designers would have incorporated a built-in trimmer.
Lose trimmers often never make it to be included in a second-hand sale.

Agreed Maurice except to say, when new the original trimmer did come with the machine it had an adhesive backing that was supposed to allow the end user to place the trimmer actually onto the machine in their prefered desired location.

I must admit, I too am guilty of not doing this with any of mine as I feel it is detrimental to the appearance of the machine, however, I do always keep mine for each of the machines I have in the accessories pouch within the excellent hard transit carrying case.

I have received the film cutter, which still has its adhesive backing intact, and thank David for his kind gesture.

The price of the T502 in October 1982 was £315 and the double page Bauer ad in Movie Maker described it as Bauer quality without compromise.

They also said that you didn't have to spend a lot of money to buy a Bauer, but one thing Bauer promised was that the lowest-priced Bauer was built to the same uncompromising quality standard as the most expensive. "When you pay more for a Bauer you pay solely for more performance. Isn't that the way you want it to be?"

The cheapest projector at that time was the silent T23 @ £82. The dearest was the sound T610 @ £630. The latter described as "Not so much a projector, more a mini sound studio".
