    Default Super 8 Movie Prtojector Repaired

    Nothing whatever to do with 4/3 but I thought some of you might be interested. Went to run some my old super 8 movies through the projector with a view of having them digitised. The rewind spool failed to work and bits of yellow plastic fell out of the projector. Opened it up and found that a yellow plastic worm-gear had disintegrated. The projector is a Eumig S934. Eumig went belly up 35 years ago. I did a bit of research and found these guys in Holland that run the video servicing company Van Eck Video Services. Apparently plastic worm-gear failure is common in Eumigs, so much so that these enterprising young lads are 3D printing this part. I bought the part, got it in a few weeks, installed it and I was back in business, so to speak. This is the youtube video of how they did the 3D printing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-m9m_U_Cb4 . This is how to replace the worm-gear https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8HGUY2mnSRA .
