Hi to the members and especially to Leon Norris.

I have got a nice faulty Elmo GS 1200 that I must repair.
Hope some one can help as I can't go any further now.

The plastic gears that drive both front and back arms have cracked. These are the plastic gears driven by the take up motor and rewind motor plastic gears. They both have a one way clutch in the centre to ensure they drive the input shafts in only one direction.

So as these 2 plastic gears are broken and I have no spares, I need advice on where to get replacements.

Hope you can help with advice Leon or any member that knows about these pesky plastic drive gears.

Regards to all.

You can buy new ones from "Van Eck Video Services", just google that name to find his extensive listings.

Thanks Graham..

I did find the gears needed at Edwins web site and have already ordered the 2 gears. They look similar but are not both the same.

Hope they get here soon and I am looking forward to fitting them.

best wishes to all

Hi frank, yes they do go! I have them in stock ! And the arm pulleys are different! One has a gear made behind it. And the other does not! If you need any thing let me know! Good luck! Leon.

Hi Frank!

Have your question about the gears been answered?
For these nice projectors we do our utter most best to fabricate all the parts which wear out!

If you need a part (gear, button, film guide, wormgear, etc,etc) and can't find in on the spare parts finder:

Please let me know!

p.s. Today we have released yet another new part, the upper film guides for the Elmo 600 series.

Hi Edwin,

I am very happy with the two GS-1200 arm drive gears you recently sent me. They were quite easy to fit and are performing well.

Also happy with the replacement Elmo K-100 delivery arm spindle, the K-110 delivery spindle and the Eumig 810d delivery spindle Super 8 Collar you sent.

The Eumig 900 worm gears and the Eumig 926 sound head pressure pad locking clips also are very good.

I will be buying more parts in the future from you as needed.

Thanks for the great service Edwin,

Dogtor Frankarnstein
