If a film is double sprockets will it harm my Eiki SL-0 if I run it?

Probably not.

Except if you forget to turn down (or better completely turn off) the volume. That might give a considerable "blast" to the speaker and/or your eardrums. [Roll Eyes]

Just a lone collector from a faraway land...

It will be fine Brad,I run those silent double sprocket films on my Eiki Slotload,but as said ... turn down or off the sound as it make a pop noise as the optical reader reads the sprocket holes.

Cheers from me in New Zealand :-)

Don't forget that 16mm film with double perforations may have been shot/made at silent speed, therefore the action at 24fps will be 50% faster.
