This videos was made some year ago, last time I used it. Just got it then. This other day I got a 16mm full film. I run a movieclub and sadly to my suprice, the back reel or wheel, do not move at all. and the projector is going somewhat slow also. Anyone got any ide off what I can do?
I will open it up tomarrow I think and see if I can figure something out myself, the back axel though Idk...

Make sure the rear reel arm is not in the top position. Oil the mechanism, you have a number of oil bores, on the reel arms, too. One drop of a heavier gears oil, three or four drops to the central mechanism’s felts. Manual tells you. Good luck

I was just doing that yesterday. I could not understand how it can breakdown just like that, ofc old machine it can. But it seems really good. So I went and messed around whit it then suddenly it worked again, it was the arm right. Never knew that before. So I was just going on to say it worked , but yee I need to check out those oil holes, ty for telling me, that is a good thing to do.
I have this film http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0042230/ on 16mm though my version is black and white, I do not mind because b&w do hold better then color, the test i did yesterday , the movie was looking great. This projector I have seems to be very technical and advance.
