Hello all,

I am going to transfer very old 35 mm optical sound rolls.

I am constructing a reproducer to do it that is using idler rollers from a telecine,
so that the film will be only touched on the edges.
Drive sprocket is adjustable to allow for shrinkage.

My Magnatech deck (highly modified) uses a good wow and flutter damper with two dancer arms.
I am going to replace the two idler rollers with telecine PTR rollers.
That way the film only touches rubber.

Question:
Where can I get the PTR rollers that are about 1 1/4 inch diameter?
I need two sets of rollers, and two mounts.
(Not the 3 inch Kodak ones.)

I have both mono and stereo PEC cells, into 3 Jensen mag preamps (converted to optical.)
Universal Audio 2192 converters.
Logic Pro for 192K sound files.
Tension servos are adjustable to stop at any warble larger than a splice for safety.

Thanks for any help
and all suggestions are welcome,

Pete Barth

A new group of people have taken over San Labs in Canada and they have PTR mounts and PTR's
