Hello Leon,

Happy to see you back here !!

And many thanks for parts received one year ago, now , by the grace of you, my GS1200 is running smoothly.

In case I have to order more parts, do you accept Paypal refund ?
(Unfortunately money transfer by Wester Union is very costly)

Kind regards

Hi, Thomas I have all parts for Gs1200. Like, all film path parts, all four motors, knobs, relays, arms, legs, circuit boards, front and rear covers, and more. If you need anything let me know. I am getting a lot of calls for parts. All so Joe Taffis does PayPal for me. He will contact me and let me know when payment is received.
Thank you, Leon Norris

That sounds good Leon.
At the Moment I dont have Paypal but I will install it next Time.

I have three GS 1200 wich are run fine.
But for the Future it could be well to have some importand Parts.

Hi Thomas , you have so nice machines! They look modified. Like mine. I also have the long arms to hold 2400 ft reels and two blade shutter and f 1.0 zoom lens. And rewind modified for rapid speed! I can rewind any size reel in seconds! A great machine!

Hi Leon!

That sounds great. Have you change the Motors in your Machine?
I have a seperate Motor Rewinder for the big Reels.

What kind of Halogen Lamp are you use? Or is our machine a Xenon Version? I have modified my Halogen Light like this. It is the brightest Light I ever saw on a GS 1200.

Hi Thomas, I use the ESC lamp. 200 watt. 24 volt. I did chance the motor to 2-3 volt front and 5-6 volt back! With the constant voltage control board . with that mix I get the RAPID rewind !I'm selling new parts. When customers see this they want their machine to do the same! Parts are getting low! Thanks Leon Norris
