Fumeo 9119

#1 by Gwyn Morgan , Sat Nov 28, 2015 6:19 pm

After a long spell in its box out came my fumeo 9119 turned on ,running and no sound.(lots of bad language ).
Anyway after checking this that and the other getting screwdriver out and dismataling the back cover to find the amp fuse case broke,so of to maplins and £1.69 for a new panel fuse case and a bit of soldering away we go works perfectly again."thank god"
Only had time for a short 400 of Lawrence of Arabia which was nice to see even though the colour turning a bit,next to try my optical prints when I get five minutes.lovely machine this.image.jpeg - Bild entfernt (keine Rechte)image_2.jpeg - Bild entfernt (keine Rechte)image_3.jpeg - Bild entfernt (keine Rechte)image.jpeg - Bild entfernt (keine Rechte)

I have this machine in it's AVS incarnation, which is a rebadged Fumeo 9119. It is not the most elegant, nor the most ergonomic machine but it sure is the most robust Super 8 projector ever built...
Basically this is the classic Fumeo 16mm machine adapted for super 8. It even has the same motor.
I particularly like the hand threading and it's absolutely scratch free film path.
Also, my machine runs extremely quiet. In fact it is the quietest machine I have (although I don't have a Bauer)

I wish I had one of these. I prefer manual threading. They where probably never sold in Sweden.

Thanks David machine runs perfectly now,it is the quietest machine going,and the nice thing is being able to show a complete feature using the large reels.Well worth the money if you can get one.

Well done Gwyn, glad it was fixable, Tom, you WILL get one, there is no doubt in my mind, one will be in your possession, they are
a very kind projector, and you will see for yourself.

It's a bit different to mine Hugh, different controls on the front panel, and a push button switch on the left i have never seen before,, is it some kind of noise reduction ?. Maybe
a later model, obviously some improvements were made along the way.

It differs slightly from mine too Paul, the red button is in the place where my vol. control is. I did get a spare of the Fumeo's
in a "legacy". but the opt. and circuits had all been removed, leaving just the guts of the projector, it has served as a good spares
for my self and my little mate in Italy, Flavio, if there are parts you need, let me know, no cost.

What has happened to the main control knob on the one featured above in the photo?

Is it missing?

I think the small cap that sits on the top of the main control knob has fallen off Andrew, you can just see the locking nut in the picture exposed. Its for colour coding each
individual control knobs if you have banks of them, like the disco mixers had.

Just to clarify the controls ,this machine is described in the manuals I have as a fumeo professional super 8 and does indeed have different controls .the main on/off run / light is there and does not have the small round face plate ,it fell off!,
Moving from l to right there is an on/off amp push button switch,bass rotary switch,table rotary switch ,presence rotary,film rotary and mixer rotary.using a combination of the volume and presence controls you can get a very good sound even when the sound track is low.
Attached is a picture of the 9119 big brother which comes out every so often.yes the arms are missing.they are all stored separately with the reels as this machine can either be a stand alone long play with the arms attached to the machine or else I have a complete stand alone long play.[[File:image.jpeg|none|auto]]

Looks like a nice machine, very professional looking, I bet that weighs a bit, built like a tank and rare too I would think. Thanks for the upload, I have never seen one before.

Yes this machine without the top spool arm and rear one which has a separate motor is very very heavy and is not for the faint hearted to move around.when it runs it is very quiet I would say one of the best machines I own.hope to post some more pics soon perhaps on a new thread.

About £750 minimum Tom. I don't believe you'll find a worn out one, just one that maybe hasn't been looked after as well as Hugh's or David's for example.
I'd like one for my optical films but at this price, it may be the films that have to go as I would never use it on magnetic films.

They are, from everyone ive ever known who has owned one, very very durable. Like an ST but the real deal!!

Ian and Arthur @ Perry's had one for 20years running daily checking their, and everyone else's second hand prints. Still the same head and motor after all those years. Speaks volumes for the build quality and best of all.....no scratching from the pro standard film path and gate!! :)))

Tom,I was in the right place at the right time some ten years ago when I picked up this machine and the 8mm one I can't remember what I paid back then but it was very reasonable the seller just wanted rid of them.in the manuals that came with them the 8 mm price written in pencil for the wide screen centre is over a grand.i dread to think what the cost of the 16 is especially with the extra long play system that goes with it plus the reels.there is two sets of arms that goes with this lot.Sorry no real idea as never thought of selling ,must go for now battery 10 percent speak soon.

If only optical sound facility. What an oversight!

Yep that is the one advantage with the Fumeo Gwyn.

What were they thinking of at that price point? Surely all 3 of the big 3 should have had optical sound.

Ugo Grasso's Xenon is for sale over on the other forum right now.

What a machine and what a rebuild!!! The Guy is simply Mr Perfectionist !!!!

Take a look at the photographs. It is simply magnificent, the work he has carried out!!!
