I too had a HORIPET, in 1968 still got it, so Walton 50' Laurel and Hardy title 'Reluctant Legionnaires' was the first standard 8 film purchased, the Horipet came with a 50' 'Horse Racing'. My friend had a 'proper' projector that his Father passed onto him so he had Castle 200 footers, 'Frankenstein Meets The Werewolf', 'The Mummy', 'Dracula' and 'Son of Kong'. So a friend of the family made arms for my Horipet to take 200' reels, but it wasn't until my films were shown on my friends projector that I could see the the damage the Horipet was doing to my films. So I then got a second hand Astra standard 8 projector with manual rewind, 'I was A Teenage Werewolf' was the first title I got, but the Astra was loosing the loop, the times it went into repair, and they told me it was OK, I paid and it would still be the same even with new films. It was eating into my paper-round money and I think looking back now they were taking advantage of a kid. So I then got a Hanimex no loosing the loop, but another problem, it did not like Columbia films, they would continually jam in the gate, my 'Battle with Talos' should have been called 'Battle with Hanimex', it was full of burns. I was at another friends house and his Father had the same Hanimex, yes it would also jam Columbia films, he was French and the room was full of French expletives.

Steve, I too thought I'd gone up in the world with a Hanimex Duo, Reg/Super 8, nice machine, but it put tramlines down all my prints,
due to a proud rivet in the gate. I love it when Godzilla kicks the crap out of Tokyo, I hope Hanimex got a hiding, I know it ain't real.
but don't deny an old guy his fantasies....

This is the old Astra standard 8 with manual re-wind, and a great looser of the loop, on cold winter nights I would place my hands over the lamp house vent to warm them, in the days when we had ice on the inside of the windows.

I remember those days Steve, when Jack Frost painted patterns on the window. My Eumig used to be very slow when I brought it downstairs, until it had reached living room temperature.
