If you didn't already see this: http://www.cinematog...e=2#entry431258

 

No mine.  Don't know the person selling it or have any familiarity with the dolly being sold.  Good luck.

The original poster in this thread is the same person who is apparently selling a dolly in that link...

No apology necessary, JD! I'm just puzzled why he's selling what he is apparently looking to buy...

Have you ever considered the Colortran Mini-Crab Dolly? It's from the 70's and its quality is unsurpassed. I have some information on a blog I put together some time ago. I may know someone that may be selling one. Let me know if your interested and I could reach out to them.

 

The Colortran Mini-Crab Dolly site is at: http://colortrancrab...y.blogspot.com/

 

Also, speaking of the Moviola, I saw one last week at Visual Products in Wellington, Ohio. They have one for sale (check their website). Gorgeous condition, but man, I didn't realize how huge theses dollies were! It looks like a scaled down Mini-Cooper! Check out the Colortran and let me know if you'd like for me to check on it's availability.

That's what confused me.

I hope he gives himself a good price on it.
