I've been looking for the 9.5 duo for sometime now.

Very special indeed. I am keeping an eye on that auction.

WOW! What a beauty!

I've read a little about these. This looks like a well kept unit. That would be nice to have one machine to handle both formats. (More space in the projector booth)

My "booth" is crowded, the super 8 is fixed and the standard 8 and 16mm rotate on an as needed basis.

Well...good luck guys!

I can recommend the seller. I bought a Eumig 926 from him. Very helpful he was and the machine as described and well-packed. He often has interesting items for sale.

Bill, I understand the full booth problem...I actually have number of multi format projectors including a Paillard Bolex G3 which is for 8mm, 9.5mm and 16mm. The problem usually with the multi format ones is they are not uniform across. They may be great on one gauge and then not so great on another, so you wind up needing separate projectors anyway...

Dino, what do you mean by not uniform across?

Bill, it means that it doesnt run all formats equally good. Like for example running 16 mm smoothly, but being wobbly on 8 and 9,5 mm, or running 8 mm smoothly, but tearing the 16 mm films.

Thanks Christian...I was thinking along those lines but I wasn't sure. I would think this particular machine would perform better because each gauge has it's own seperate gate and film path.

Is that so? Or all the dual gauge machines just novelties?

Yes I think the multi format projectors that have the removable parts are better, although the Heurtiers' only have changeable gates and they seem to be the best....I know the G3 I have is HORRIBLE on 9.5 but good on 8mm and 16mm, but it is tempting on all gauges because it has an adjustable shutter....OH and sorry for being confusing earlier, "I don't speak always great across get my point" [Confused]

No problem Dino! I figured that's what you meant, but wasn't sure.

I suppose that when the projector is dedicated to a single format that is the best way to go...but still this 8mm/16mm projector is still pretty sweet! Nice pics.

Wow, I've never seen one of these either. It has an intermittent movement instead of claw, interesting..... wonder if the intermittent is belt driven, or gear.... and enclosed or not. Something you'd have to make sure it's greased up all the time for sure.
