Anyone have 4 or 5 of these for sale?


As you can see, it's getting dirtier :-/

Hi Vidar,

I would try one of the thin q-tip type swabs that Steve Osborne sells with a touch of FIlmrenew. Those older brushes are more likely to scratch the film path. I take it you have the Elmo FP. very good machine. Too bad their zoom lens tens to fog up. I use mine without the zoom attachment. Hope someday to find one that hasn't, but doubtful.

Vidar, I have one in much better shape than yours that I never use. I use compressed air, and a Q-Tip swab with alcohol if necessary. PM me your address and you can have it....

I bought a small battery powered vacuum cleaner like this example, can't remember where I got mine from though.

I give it a quick clean with this I also bought a lens brush I finally give a blast of compressed air.

I never thought much of the Elmo brush.

Still not fitting for the Elmo 16-CL, but it's a thought for the GS-1200

Thanks a million Joe ... Please do let me know if you at least would want payment for the shipping costs, okay? Arrived a couple of days ago, just didn't find the post (searched wrong part of forum)
