It seems Clive Tobin has closed down his business.  A sad loss.

That's a bummer. I still use the speed checker I bought from him about 20 years ago!

Tobin Cinema Systems Inc. Has Closed Down
As Of Dec. 31, 2016
The staff that are too young to retire all have day jobs elsewhere. However we can have them sometimes come back and build items for you as a hobby.
We will have peculiar terms and conditions that will apply.
Thanks to everyone for their patronage over the years!

Sad to hear.  I have three Tobin motors; one on a Bolex H16 M5, one on a Bolex H16 Rex-1, and one on my Arri 16.S.  Someone will get one of them when I eventually get around to listing the M5.

Blimey!

Hope at least he is happy to "retire". Well deserved.
I still have one Tobin Crystal sync motor. Selling on eBay, in case anyone is interested.
