This is for me, not minor wear. I think at least Mr. Hardy would agree :-)

I agree Vidar, that's not minor wear.

There's a thread on 8mm Film Tech, in which a member is criticised for his descriptions of projectors on Ebay. I think the projector was an Eiki NT1, and the seller said it was the best; with a 2 claw pull down. Members were asking , how can a 2 pull claw down of the Eiki be better than the 3 claw pull down of B&H; also David Guest joined in the conversation saying that each time the seller advertises a projector he describes it as the Rolls Royce of projectors, regardless of what make/model, etc. a bit further down on the 16mm page David Guest states that he is putting the best ever 16mm projector on Ebay: another member provided the link to Ebay. Turns out to be an Eiki RT1. So it would appear that this is the Rolls Royce of projectors, and a question, if I was still in that forum would be 'Are two claws better than three?'.

Well said Robert, I think I' be sticking my "two claws" up at the suggestion that the Eiki or "Elf" is the Rolls Royce of 16mm, hardly.
A workmanlike machine, but not gentle with film to the extent of other projectors, put it down to sales talk, I have the same projector,
but prefer B&H any day. The film Vidar spotlights, is just like the 8mm films I had after their encounter with the "Horipet" scratch machine.

Interesting (but terribly misleading) how some eBay sellers will use the same description over and over to describe a product.Chalk it up to laziness (or ignorance of items being sold.) Either way buyer beware I say.

I didn't like that David Guest was criticing the seller, Robert Tucker, then doing the same thing himself.

Regarding Vidar's enquiry of number of claws on the Bauer, I don't know, but they are a very nice machine Vidar by all accounts and
much sought after. I'll check that question out.



Vidar Olavesen sais Thank You!

Hi Vidar, the Bauer's are three claw machines.
