TIPS FOR TROUBLE FREE PROJECTION

PLEASE NOTE: Dual 8mm projectors, that can run both 8mm and super-8 / single-8 film, tend to sacrifice performance and film safety. For this reason I have never cared for most of them and will usually not have any for sale here. This is just my personal opinion. I'm sure there are some good dual machines but I just prefer not to have to deal with them because of my past experience with some of them. My only exception will be some of the Eumig sound or early silent models because they require separate sets of sprockets and film gates for each format.

Here is the difference between 8mm and super-8 film.

About the confusion caused by "Single-8" and "reel adapters":
8mm film started being called standard or regular 8mm after Super-8 film was introduced in 1965. Single-8 is Fuji's name for their Super-8 film that was mylar based and in a different style cartridge from Super-8 for camera use. That is why they had to give it a different name. All Super-8 projectors will run Single-8 film. Super-8 and single-8 are both the same film format. A projector labeled Super/Single 8mm will not run the older 8mm film format.
Reel adapters you have heard about are for allowing super-8 reels, with super-8 or 8mm film on them, to be put on a 1/4" 8mm spindle on a dual-8 model projector that is designed to run both film formats; NOT to be used on just any 8mm projector so you can try to run super-8 film on it. You cannot run super-8 film on a regular 8mm projector, regardless of which kind of reel it is on.

Tips For Trouble Free Projection
Many of the films offered on this site are Like New or in Mint condition. As such, especially with black and white film, they can be very dry. If they are not lubricated, depending on your projector, they can not slip properly when going through the gate and may clatter or the image may even jitter. All films, especially new condition or green prints, need to be lubricated for optimum performance. It is best to use a cleaner made for conditioning and lubricating film.

Go to FILM-TECH to buy FilmGuard to clean, lubricate and protect your film prints. Apply the cleaner with a 100% cotton cloth like an old T-shirt, and then wipe off the dirt and polish off the cleaner using a dry cloth. (You can use GooGone as a substitute film cleaner, but it does not add any lubrication). With FilmGuard you don't have to completely have the cleaner dried off, but after the film cleaner has completely evaporated, it would also be a good idea to polish and lubricate the film with a silicone treated cloth. I have some flannel silicone treated cloths on my MOVIE SUPPLIES page.

Dirt can build up on the guide rails that can also cause this problem. You must always keep the film gate and pressure pad of your projector clean and polished. I clean my film gates often. I moisten a Q-tip with FilmGuard or to scrub off any hard dirt on the rails. It's always a good idea to add extra leader to the beginning of each reel also.That protects the film during threading and allows you to use a permanent marker to label it.
