Hi
Hope this is not a silly question. I picked up from a second hand shop a film which has Super 8mm on the box, the reel will not fit on the spindle on the projector - am i missing something obvious ?

Regards

The Elmo FP-C is a dual-gauge projector, but I assume the spool spindles are only for standard 8.
Therefore you need these spool adapters.

The supply reel arm on the FP-C has a dual format spindle that handles both Super 8 and Std. 8 reels with no adapter. I can't tell from the pic...but that reel might be an audio reel. I would transfer the film to another reel.
