Hi Vidar, I may have some feature's very soon. Once I get the p/p details from the seller, there could be on offer Grease (derann version) Goldfinger, Die hard, also some
laurel & hardy shorts. Will be viewing before sale's take place to get a true idea of condition.

Thanks, Paul. The titles you list do not sound like cheap ones though. Grease I already have. L&H shorts might be of interest. But I do have fairly many of them. Would love Pardon Us

I've got loads that I will sorting through Vidar but mainly opt sound if you're interested.
There will be some magnetic ones but either older b/ W stuff or stuff with the odd line through some it. None will be expensive by today's standards.

Paul, wouldn't mind first refusal on Grease mate come the time? Vidar already has this one but I only have the cut down and love my musicals.

Also interested in Goldfinger if Vidar isn't for whatever reason.

Not a Bond fan, Andrew :-) Some lines doesn't bother me too much. I had no problems enjoying the Calamity Jane you kindly gave me (thanks again). Of course I am not making those green emulsion stripes, but I live with some :-) Optical is fine, I have several ST-1200's with optical and my GS-1200 Xenon also does optical.

Thanks, look forward to see what you can come up with

Nothing is as badly marked as that film was Vidar. That was one of early ones back in the hobby when I was finding my feet with different machines.
It wasn't perfect to begin with either Vidar may I add but certainly my fall outs with different projectors were happening all about that time, and now you see why!

I'm glad I protected my very best in those days, though I was really disappointed what happened to this as it is a great film on low fade stock and far to good to be ruined like that!

Each time I was showing it, more and more lines were appearing!! No matter what I attempted to cure the issue. Totally at random and totally Infuriating.

Things have been way different since then thankfully, though I did have to go through a short spell of the same until I fixed the Beaulieu when I first got it. Nothing like this though thank God.
Plus once resolved, it has since had impeccable table manners!

When the Bauer cam begins to fail, a similar story occurs but sadly unnoticeable on the actual machine itself, only when films are shown on wider gated machines as the lines are formed to the extreme left or right of frame. Only then, does the true picture reflect the damage incurred.
Again though, experience teaches you the watchouts now when this wear is at it's infancy and with this experience, an intervention and repair can be carried out prior to damage taking place.

Had I had not found these three machine types I now use, I would't be here now. It was ridiculous how much film was being marked one way or another and was making the hobby unpleasurable and too expensive for me to have remained interested in it.

I did not mind that too much really. What is more annoying to mr, is the ones with splices that cut off dialogue. Odd splices is no problem if dialogue is intact.

Like Del, I've recently switched to using a C.I.R. metal bodied Super 8mm splicer with "Jackro" tape as opposed to the fully automated Agfa F8S system I previously used.

It is more time consuming to use this "manual" splicer, but used with the "Jackro" tape, there is no question the tape is smaller over 2 frames rather than 4 and more sticky on Polyester.

This also has the added advantage of leaving the soundtrack exposed to keep what you are describing here Vidar to an absolute minimal. This is particular useful if like me, you do tend to re record some films as then the joins become completely unnoticeable.

I've found that by using Filmguard with the 4 frame auto tapes, it really is difficult to ensure that the splice will stay in tact after a few projection runs. It's early days yet to conclude from this switch of mine, but so far the results of using the C.I.R. plus "Jackro" tape appear highly positive.

Thanks again here Del for the copy of the instruction manual you sent me. I wanted to strictly follow all procedures and advice before doing a side by side comparison test between the two different splicing methods and this has enabled me to do so to the letter of the law, so to speak.

I also use a rubber roller that I got with a Wurker splicer. This also helps secure the adhesive when first carrying out the splice.

I think what I mean is worse than those splices. I mean when 5 or more frames is missing and particularly if they occur nany times during a conversation

Luckily, I don't think I have encountered too many films with missing frames thankfully. I suppose that would be a real spoiler.

I have another copy of this print, but its a Blackhawk version, so I will be keeping that version, however I will have a look at the Walton version of this, I've had it sometime and
as you know all prints are hit and miss, nothing is carved in stone. I have seen some really good Walton prints and some shockers, I will get some screen shots for you Vidar.

Sounds good, would prefer Blackhawk mostly for being more complete. The Waltons I have are okay quality.

Thank you

Hi Vidar, if you want the Blackhawk version, there's a guy on Ebay at the moment and he has a copy of this, I emailed him to check and he confirmed this, he also has some quite rare
l/h shorts all on Blackhawk, if you got some spare cash these are at very good prices, with nothing to pay on import duty, don't ask me how they do it but I used this a couple of times and its correct.

WOW, 60 Euros shipping was steep. Paid about 30 for shipping my GS-1200 Xenon from Norway to UK
