Can anyone here on PST help? Can the following two cuf...

Re: Museumsprojekt Heimat e.V.

Thank you Paul for answering the question for me, you were spot on with your answer.

Yes, we are a legally recognised Verein (Association) within Germany and Hoffman Grink
has already mentioned that we do museum work.

Cheers, Bill.

Re: Florian Geyer - Frontkino

If you have the ability to repair 16mm film I have some footage of the 1936 olympics that needs putting back together I think it jammed in the projector and melted but not 100%, I also have a Bauer 16mm projector and an agfa 8mm/16mm projector which I have never taken out of the box as it looks lik...

Re: Florian Geyer - Frontkino

The film needs to be wiped with a cleaner material on a rag during re-winding, otherwise it becomes brittle and is liable to snap in the projector. This is mostly true with original wartime film as the production standards were not so high, with it being wartime and the raw materials harder to obtai...

Botty,

Perhaps we should work together on this project, even if it is only exchanging information and ideas?

Cheers, Bill.

Re: Florian Geyer - Frontkino

Great idea. Is the projector equipped for sound? Hi Botty, this one is silent, but the one coming in two months time will be fitted with sound. However I must say that the Ditmar 2860 featured here is dual guage ( 8mm and 16mm) There were only about 7000 or so made before the war and most of these ...

Florian Geyer - Frontkino

What do you do with your group during the quiet winter months? Projekt Frontkino (Frontline Cinema) I recently purchased a 1935 Ditmar 16mm film projector and a selection of old films from the war period. A sign is being made for our "Club House" and we will have private film evenings. So more pics...

Re: rank system

Yes, there were several ranks and positions that were issued on a time served basis. Some positions or duties that sound like a rank but are not ranks at all, for example "Spiess" ( two "Piston Rings" on both arms, were like role of the British CSM in many repects) This position could be held by thr...
