Can. Thats a great little youtube video. Thanks for sharing that one. While we all know how these work, this is great for showing people who do show a genuine interest in our hobby. My youngest Daughter is into retro things and is now collecting records. She also watched and followed what i did recently with my NT1 when i dismantled large parts to the best of my ability and she was fascinated when it all went back together and watched it working. Iwas fasinated that it actually worked!!! Great stuff.i see it has had a decent amount of viewings too.

Interesting video, indeed. There are many technical words I don't know in English but I could follow I have however a question : I thought what is called a "shuttle" in the video was a "claw". Is that two words for the same thing or am I mistaking ?

I just find it all fascinating and marvel at the engineering of such machines. How everything is synchronized and works to literally turn still frames into moving images with sound. The way one element moves and then another does something else and then another pushes something etc etc. Tom it must be very nice to be able to share your passion with your daughter. It just makes the hobby that extra bit fun. It's a shame none of my friends are in to this kind of stuff but hey at least we have this forum:)

Bell & Howell used the term shuttle extensively since they had introduced the so-called shuttle film movement with the design 2709 standard camera back in 1911 (sold from summer 1912 on). The design 70 Filmo, 71 Eyemo, and the Filmo 8 cameras have a true shuttle, too. It oscillates stricly linearly down and up in the tradition of the Cinématographe Lumière.
