  1. Forgot to mention, once the projector has been wormed up, the following times I start-up it behaves as it should. The first stage about 50% and the second 100%.
  2. The projector runs on 3 phase. The starter has 2 positions. First about 50% speed with the resistors and then full speed. When "cold", the projector hardly runs at all in the first position and in the second position it needs a minute to reach full speed. If, as you suggests, the motor runs with the resistors at all time, shouldn´t the motor run at reduced speed all the time? And I guess the resistors will be very hot?
  3. Hello! I have installed an Ernemann VIIIB, which is in very good condition. However, I have found that the projector must be run warm and it takes almost a minute until it comes up to full speed. Thought something was wrong with the motor and switched to a spare, but there was no difference. Is this a thing with all Ernemann VIIIB? It simply needs to be warmed up? Perhaps I should add, the projector has been cleaned inside and has new Ernemann oil. Turning the motor manually on the knob is easy. So there seems to be no friction anywhere to cause the slow start. Thomas, Sweden
  4. Hello. I´m trying to find a Zeiss Multi Ernophon magnetic sound head in good condition, for an Ernemann VIIIB projector. I have tried under "Suche" several times, with no luck. I need it to complete a "Museum Projector" at my theatre. I would appreciate any help. Thanks! Ich versuche einen Zeiss Multi Ernophon Magnettongerät in gutem Zustand für einen Ernemann VIIIB-Projektor zu finden. Ich habe "Suche" mehrere Male ohne Glück versucht. Ich muss einen "Museumsprojektor" in meinem Theater fertigstellen. Ich würde mich über jede Hilfe freuen. Dank! Thomas
  5. I think perhaps the Bauer U2 is asking for trouble. There are electrical components that looks "burned", or at least have been very hot. There are parts that need to be replaced (or missing), and spare-parts are really hard to find and/or are very expensive. The machine has not been in use for at least 30 years (it was given to me for free), and I have no idea if everything is OK until it´s actually powered up. I also need an optical sound-head rebuilt for Dolby analog stereo. If I can find all missing parts and the cost is reasonable, maybe it´s worth a try. But, I guess any of the two Ernemanns will be the choise. Zeiss projectors has been widely used in Sweden and regarded as very good projectors. From the replies they are from "very gentle on film" to "crap" (compared to Bauers). I´m leaning towards the E IX, but the E VIIIB has a laser/stereo reproducer, so all types of soundtracks can play. Also looking for a pair of 1800m spool-boxes for it, if anyone has or know where to find.
  6. I´m located in Kristianstad, in the south of Sweden.
  7. I would love to use the Bauer U2, but it´s not the easiest of the four projectors to get up and running. I also need an optical soundhead rebuilt for analog stereo, or have the original re-built. I very much doubt there is anyone left in Sweden who can do that.
  8. Hello, Two 70mm gates for sale on www.ebay.com, search for "70mm norelco" 70mm Norelco, Philips, Todd-AO, Kinoton Conversion Kit No.2 I have some spare aperture plates, if you should need any. Best regards Thomas
  9. Thank you for the input! The idea is to have a classic projector (in original condition) from the late 1950´s. The E IX is closest. It has optical mono and 4-track magnetic sound. The E VIIIB is re-built for laser-stereo. I actually also have an AGA "Cinemascope" projector with optical mono/magnetic stereo. However the fly-wheel is missing in the optical sound-head, and it has a carbon arc lamp. And also a Bauer U2 fully equipped for 35/70mm. The problem is, it´s quite complicated and the numbers on 8 or 10 cables has fallen off. So it will be a bit difficult to make it run. Otherwise, all projectors seems to be in very good condition. These are nice problems, don´t you think? Thomas Sweden
  10. Hello Martin. Thanks for your reply. Perhaps I should mention that the E IX is the older type, from the 1950´s. Guess it does not make any difference? Anything particular with the E VIII B, that makes it your second choice? What is not so good? Here in Sweden it´s hard to find spare-parts for the E IX, so it´s good news to hear you have plenty in Germany. Can you please advice me where I can find a dealer? Danke für deine Antwort. Vielleicht sollte ich erwähnen, dass der E IX der ältere Typ aus den 1950er Jahren ist. Ratet mal, dass es keinen Unterschied macht? Besonderes beim E VIII B, das macht es zur zweiten Wahl? Was ist nicht so gut? Hier in Schweden ist es schwierig, Ersatzteile für den E IX zu finden. Daher ist es eine gute Nachricht, zu hören, dass Sie reichlich in Deutschland sind. Können Sie mir bitte sagen, wo ich einen Händler finden kann? Gruß Thomas, Sweden
  11. Ernemann IX or VIII B? Of the two projectors, wich one do you consider to be the best? Wich one is most gentle to the film and/or produces the best picture? Please answer in English, if possible. Übersetzt mit Google Translate: Welcher dieser beiden Projektoren gilt als besser? Was ist schonend für den Film und/oder gibt das beste Bild? Antworten Sie bitte auf Englisch, falls möglish. Gruß Thomas, Sweden
  12. Vielen Dank für Ihre prompte Antwort. Thomas
  13. Übersetzt aus dem Schwedischen mit GoogleTranslate: Offenbar gab es für Ernemann IX zwei verschiedene filmtrommeln (600 meter). Könnten Sie den Projektor daher mit einer "Standard" -filmtrommel oder mit der auf Ernemann VIII gefundenen bestellen? War diese filmtrommeln ab 1955 oder bereits ab 1951 optional für den Ernemann IX erhältlich? Thomas Schweden
  14. Wer weiß, in welchem Jahr Zeiss Multi Ernophon Magnetton-gerät hergestellt hat? Thomas
