    Yes most of the assembly was done by women, but fun fact: Eumig was also a very social employer and wanted to employ people with a handicap. so there was an entire assembly line in Wiener neudorf with blind people! they made many kinds of sub assemblies offcourse but nevertheless they could work there. all with hand presses and workplaces suited for working by touch.

    lovely serie of scans! really informative. original tools dont exist anymore but i see that the film tension meters are universal and i have one. but not on a special eumig jig offcourse

    Your welcome folks, to be honest I was never a great fan of Eumig and was more into Elmo. However over the last few years I have began to think that was wrong. The Eumig although cheaper to buy in its day compared to the Elmo, did not suffer the same scratch problems. People who bought Eumig over Elmo looking back now, most likely did the right thing. I think it was mentioned elsewhere, that Bill Davidson from "Movie Maker" fame, did all his test screening reports using a Eumig 810D, and claimed the projector never scratched films. You would have thought he would have used a Elmo, but no, just the humble Eumig....and that says a lot for the projector.

    I do feel though that it would have been better for Eumig to stick to a rotating lens barrel for focus, rather that the jittery focus knob, focus adjustment could have been a lot smoother, with the rotating lens barrel as fitted to the earlier Eumig projectors.

    Anyway here is a wee video I put up on you-tube a while ago.

    This is really great, Graham: We finally get to meet the Hum-Buck Meisterin!

    (The poor lady: "Can I hum you a tune?" "Don't you DARE!")

    Janice, I've worked at about 5 electronics companies and the majority of assembly staff has always been women. Men have larger hands (on average, of course), which makes it easier for women to work with assembly of small parts. Especially back that long ago, every component on a circuit board would have been inserted, and then soldered and clipped manually.

    Very interesting indeed, thank's Graham.
    Eumig in it's heyday, before the Polavision debacle. I wonder if Eumig would still be around and making digital projectors if not for that.

    Thanks Graham for posting this. I find it interesting that the majority of assemblers appear to be women

    Second lot of photos....Note in "Picture 8" how the girl is setting up the motor to discs. This is the adjustment I would recommend if you are having speed problems as well as cleaning the discs in IPA. I have done this very same adjustment and it works well.
