Not a film purchase but picked these up today, I've cleaned up the chrome and also made the top tubing fit and powder coated in black, I'm going to use them for my cinemascope screen which I've wanted to set up for some time, Mark

Will post some pictures Greg when it's up and running, I've got to have the screen material lined as it's pretty thin, my sister in law is great on the sewing machine so she's offered to do it, so pleased and all for free,Mark

They look like powerdrive stands Mark, which were used for lighting bars, mobile dj's used these a lot, although iv'e never seen them with the black centre bar before, they also did a wind up version of this, i believe they are a copy of the more expensive manfrotto stand which were film studio standard and still used today.

They are PowerDrive stands Paul, the black bar is something I made and powder coated, we powder coat for them, the owner gave them to me as they were in his garage at home, I told him about my hobby and he very kindly bought them in, very pleased, Mark

I have still yet to use the roll of screen material i obtained a few years ago, i did promise Gwyn that i would get myself motivated to use it and make a much bigger screen than the ones i use.

Today I went and collected my two GS1200'S, Film For The Collector magazine's (40+) ,also some extra bulbs,exciter lamp and blue filters, also some Filmguard.

This GS was stuck in the load position but its freed and runs nice

This GS was mine 14 years ago, I spent a lot on it at the time, records superbly and still runs really nice

Mark,

Very nice additions to your collection! I am gradually trying to get all of the FFTC issues. If you have any doubles that you may wish to part with, please keep me in my mind.
Glad to see you brought one of your old projectors back home....good job!

Hi Tom,

I will go thru my stack of magazines and jot down those missing. I also have a couple of doubles, in case anyone may need a copy of those. Stay tuned..

Now here's a rarity, an Elmo SC 8T, I had this dropped off by the seller to my house for a fellow collector who purchased it from ebay, I plugged it in and it powered up which was a start, it has a 150w lamp and magnetic and optical sound, an auto stop facility and can also be used as a normal projector, the lens is specifically for this model and tiny but gives a good picture. So far I've got no sound, I've now inherited it so will put some time and effort into it because it really wants saving, a good clean and lube will be first on the list,Mark

Never seen one of those before, cant remember seeing one in any of the old magazines. Any idea how old it may be?

I think it's 1975 Tom, one of the first if not the first of its type, until it arrived I'd never knew it existed, some very specific parts on it,Mark

I've got one of these, really great little machine by elmo, bright screen even in the daylight its not bad, its a basic st 1200 with a mirror and a special lens for the short focus it needs, but overall very good......

I agree Paul, hopefully when it's fixed up I'll see how good it is, the downside seems a little awkward for cleaning, Mark
