Scott:

 

What kind of film have you been running?

 

4 perf or 8 perf shuttle?

Hi Jeff, yes it’s one of those “weird” Oxberrys made for still film recorders, 
a Matrix PCS. So yes it does have those 100’ magazines. Do you think the 
“pitch” of the sprockets is different than what it expects? I’ve been using it 
for years and only recently has this become a problem.

 

I have tried to figure out where it’s breaking, but it happens infrequently and 
is hard to catch – maybe once every 5 or 10 feet.

 

Thanks.

My guess is the damage is coming from the shuttle. Try to run film until there 
is damage and before I threading it mark all points of the film path on the 
film with a Sharpie.  The Oxberry and Acme shuttles are very precise. Make sure 
your film is the right pitch (.1866 with BH perfs, probably). 

 

Unless you have one of those weird Oxberrys made for still film recorders.  
These had small square mags and are designed for still camera film. 

 

What kind of film recorder is it?

Hi, I have an old Oxberry 35mm camera – not really a movie camera, it’s part of 
a film recorder setup – that’s been breaking sprockets lately. I’ve been unable 
to see what’s causing it. Can anyone recommend a repair person who might be 
able to troubleshoot it? Thanks!
