Does your Bell & Howell 8mm or super-8 projector have a broken screw in the reel spindle? If so, the reel and spindle will keep falling off the projector and spill your film on the floor. Also since the attaching screw also adjusts the pull of the film, the film will take up slack and spill on the floor anyway even if the spindle doesn't fall out of the reel arm.

Background: The B&H machines are pretty much bulletproof except for one major fatal flaw: the flimsy and brittle plastic screw that holds the reel spindle in place, and adjusts the pull on the film. Yank on the film reel too hard to remove it, and the plastic screw snaps off, leaving the threaded end down in a hole where it is impossible to get it out. Also the special spacer washer usually gets lost in your carpet. Many projectors sold on Ebay have a broken reel spindle attaching and adjusting screw, maybe even two, even if the seller doesn't admit it in the listing.

Here is the solution: We provide two reel spindles, two special spacers, and two brand new tough stainless steel screws in a hard to find thread size and length. The reel spindles and spacers are used and in good serviceable condition, and the spindle does not have the remains of a plastic screw stuck inside, so it is an easy fix. Simple instructions are furnished. You just need household items for installation including a No.1 Phillips screwdriver. Kits are available for both regular 8mm and super-8 projectors.

Also there are replacement lenses, if yours is lost, or if you want to upgrade to a zoom or replace a foggy zoom.

Items are listed on the USA Ebay site under seller clivetobin .
