Having looked at one of my Eumig 800's I have concluded that Frank's fix is easier said than done.

The best of all worlds- 8mm, super 8mm, 9.5mm, and HD Digital Projection,

Frank's method makes sense to me. It does however, look like it would be tough to get that spring out and then in again once it was shortened.

Although Franks method makes sense, and it does, to increase the spring tension pulling the drive over onto those discs to overcome the drag.

But don't forget, that those two levers have four "elongated screw holes" for a reason. Eumig would have used them during assembly to align things up. That is why I would suggest adjusting things first to start with, as shown above, as its really a simple 5 minute job, and if that does not work then you could head down Franks path.

The question you always ask, is why like in Tom case one projector will give you trouble, while another wont. Considering all the parts inside the machines are the same, it really comes down to assemble at the factory and that's where you need to look at first...what did they miss? what did not get quite right? look at the simple stuff first [Smile]
