Dave, I posted the manual for the 810D, that might help you. Some parts will be the same.

Dave I just got one of these, I have a problem can you look at yours and tell if the first sprocket at the top where you load film, turns on the shaft, as the one I have is slipping as it is not tight on the shaft, this is I think causing the film to stutter in the gate as it's not driving the film properly, I notice there is what appears to be a tiny grub allen screw in the side, but it might not be a screw my eyes ain't what they used to be. Thanks in anticipation.

Update my good fortune did not last long, the sprocket housing is split so that is why it is not tight, any more for the scrap heap?. I am slowly getting fed up.

Sad to hear that. Isn't someone selling parts for these? I think someone on the other forum had some, but can't remember the name. I bought a spare lens for a 610 I think it was.

Hope you can find one. I am about to send my 810D to service, can ask that man if he have some?

I would hang on to it Steve and see if something can be done either to repair it, or get a replacement part. Do you intend to use it only for Standard 8?; maybe you could super glue it on, but it means you couldn't change over to Super 8 but you already have a B&H for that. Just a thought.

Thanks Robert, Lee has given me some advice on how to repair it, yes I guess if it comes to the worse case scenario I would super glue it as I only want/need it to be standard 8. I just get a bit low when things go wrong, because I know with my hands I'm in for a very frustrating time fixing it, oh to be free of this stupid body.

Yes Vidar, it's always handy to have spares, but Lee says they are unavailable now, but I may strike lucky, I have to be positive, at least it's here and if it gets a spare it will be a bonus.

Yes, Lee is the man to give you advice. You can get complete sets of allen keys from Poundland and 99p shops, not something we use too much these day, but necessary to have a set indoors. I did have a brief scout around the internet to see if anyone was selling replacement sprockets, but no luck so far.

Hello Steve

I was going to say to you that mine is stiff on the shaft but looking at the standard 8 sprocket it has two small pins that hold it in position but if you head is broken the pins arnt holding in place.

Robert

Where can I find your manual that you uploaded, think im having a senior moment (lol)

Well I have glued the plastic with Industrial Super Glue, I left it to cure for 24 hours in a clamp on Paul's advice. What I did was I got an 'L' shape bracket and put a small bolt through the shaft hole and bolted it to the bracket, clamped the bracket to the table that's the third hand with no tremor, I then got the small broken top, and stuck some blue tac to it big enough to hold with two thumbs and two fingers less tremor, I put a fine brushed coat of the glue on the clamped piece, and lowered the other piece onto it, yes it was in the right place, I gave it a few minutes then removed it from the jig, and then clamped it. Now the shaft moves into the projector with-out this plastic sprocket piece which stops this, so how was I going to stop this when I wanted to stick it to the shaft, I had a eureka moment and remembered some little wooden wedges I had made for my guitar set-ups, so I put the wedge in between the two cogs and one by one packed it with slithers of old cash cards against the projector chassis, it took about 3 pieces to hold the shaft in place. Right I have two hands free again being left handed and it's my left that is affected by tremor the most, I could steady my left with my right, so I coated the part of the shaft that the sprocket holder touches with the glue, I then placed the piece in place, I now will wait a further 24 hours, then put the grub screw in, and test. Fingers and everything is crossed.

Look forward to hearing more about this Steve after the 24 hours have elapsed.

That sounds a tremendous feat of patience Steve, my hat is doffed to you Sir. Have you considered ARALDITE epoxy resin, I have had
great success with this in the past with mods to the ELMO's, it gives you time to manipulate the parts you wish to glue, then sets like iron after a day to cure. It was even used in the aeroplane industry.

Would a super 8 sprocket from another Eumig be any use Steve, by sprocket, I mean the toothed wheels, not the cover.

Yes Hugh if this doesn't work I will get some, the thing is I asked 'she may be the beauty or the beast' to get me some and she came back with some contact glue telling me she couldn't find any POXY GLUE.

Sorry, my faux pas, its std 8mm you're after. Any hardware shop should stock it Steve, if all else fails,TOOLSTATION or SCREWFIX.

No it's not the sprocket teeth Hugh, it's the plastic that sit's under it, that is fixed to the shaft that the toothed sprocket clips onto. Yes Toolstation aren't bad for things your only going to use once or so, should have got the Wife from there.

Is the shaft split Steve, or broken off completely?

It's a good job she doesn't read this Steve or there would be more than the Eumig with teeth problems. Women can be so stroppy.

No the metal drive shaft is good, it's this piece;

That should be relatively simple Steve, you are going to need your ARALDITE though. My stratagem, get me with the big words, would be
to clean surfaces to be glued with meths or some other alcohol, apply the glue, fix the two together firmly, a wind of cotton around the
circumference will hold it in place firmly, leave for at least a day for the epoxy glue to cure, it is far and away better than any super glues, which are not as strong as they used to be. After it has gone rock hard, you may remove any "snots" with a modelling knife or a gentle sand.
