Eumig Mark DL sprocket hubs interchangable w/ Mark 8?
Posted 22 April 2009 - 11:56 AM
I recently aquired a Eumig Mark DL. It seems really nice.. unfortunately it is missing one dark grey & one light grey sprocket hub. Therefore I can't play either Standard 8 or Super 8.
There are a couple of Eumig Mark 8 on e-bay right now. I'm wondering if I can get one & use the sprocket hubs from the Mark 8 on the Mark DL. Does anyone know if they are interchangable? I thought I might set up one for Super 8 & the other for Standard.
Otherwise, does anyone know where I might the sets of sprocket hubs for the Mark DL?

Ask these guys:
You might be able to use an adaptor from a reel-- the kind that allows reels to be used with either regular 8 or S8.
I don't think the reel adapter can work... the sprocket hubs have metal sprockets to pull the film through.
Anyway, I went ahead & bought the Mark 8 from e-bay...I got it pretty cheap. I'll let you know if it works.
