Is there an adjustment to the torque delivered to the take up reel on a Hanimex 800 projector. Currently the film does not wind tightly onto the spool and I am required to manually assist in spooling.

SOURCE: I am trying to spool

Yes, it does feed automatically.
Please make sure the trimming line spooled in your spool regularly.

If above does not work, please go to service center to change a lever inside spool housing.

Also it is quite possible that the small circuit board (P-print) just below the bobbinwinder that the motor plugs into has gone bad.

SOURCE: How do I refill the spool with new cord. the whole

The grasshog xp takes .080 heavy duty line, do not use any other grade other then .080!
First remove the orange cap by depresssing the two buttons. Next unscrew the screw and remove the tumbler. You'll want about 50' of line for each of the two spindle slots. Start on the spindle closest to you by inserting about an inch of line into the hole in the base and statr winding it snugly in the direction as show on the spool, take your time and do it nice and neat and the line will last you longer then if you rush and do it sloppy. At the end leave about 6/8 inches and temporarily fasten the end on one of the nitched holders. Start the inside spool from the opposite end that you started the other and repeat the same. Once they are both spooled and temporarily fastened at opposite ends from each other reattach the spool onto the edger, fasten the screw in place and un fasten each end at a time inserting the line through the wholes each on oppoing sides. Then reinstall the safety cap and you are done! For taking 15/20 minutes and 1/4 the cost of buying a new spool and saving throwing the old spool away it is well worth it =)

SOURCE: how do I wind trimmer line on double spoools for ryobi

Okay, so the good news is that YOU are probably not stupid. If you have a Ryobi trimmer like I do, it might have taken you a while to figure out the "secret" on how to rewind the line. If you only had to learn the lesson once, you are smarter than I am. (I'm leaving myself a note for next time).

If you wind the line the wrong way, you go through line really fast until it clogs up inside the bump head and you are forced to try again. The trimmer has an arrow on the spool for the direction to re-wind the line. Think of it this way, TURN THE SPOOL IN THE DIRECTION OF THE ARROW! Don't do what I did and rewind the line in the direction of the arrow, that would be wrong.

Whether this is a "mistake", a way to sell more trimmers/parts/line, or simply bad tranlation from Japanese to Engrish, it really doesn't matter. You don't need to buy anything with the exception of new line.

Good Ruck,

Mark

SOURCE: how do i replace a spool on the weedeater xt110

Just line up the two arrows across from each other to those on the the spool housing on the bottom of the spool. Then grip the bump knob and pull straight out. It takes a good grip and some force, but it usually gives way.

I have the 1276sli abumatic spincast reel. The issue is when am reeling the line in there is bump in the handle always at bottom as i crank the line in under load.


Hey michael,
Sometime when you add line to a spincast reel, where you tie the knot and wind line onto the reel, it makes a bump in the spool, this "bump" in the spool sometimes hits inside the reel everytime it makes a rotation....

My 8mm B@H 346A projector jumps @ skips while trying to watch film. How can I adjust or fix it?


Had this problem a long time ago - film on input reel was wound too tightly, and kept pulling. only fix I found was to wind film back and forth without going through the projector half a dozen times, then try again. Other possibility could be that the drive belt tension needs adjusting - how you do this depends on the projector If these do not help, then suspect something more serious and take it to a reputable repair facility, but it could be expensive. Might be cheaper to get the films digitised to DVD.

I need a manual for Bell & Howell Lumina MX60 for an elderly person - need instructions how to load film.


Spec says it's auto-load. From what I recall of my own projector, you mount the input film reel on the front 'arm', extending it as necessary to give clearance, switch on the projector, then feed the free end of the film into the appropriate orifice at the front of the projector.
It then takes over, feeds the film through and wraps it around the take-up spool automatically. It may be necessary to cut the end of the leader on a diagonal to feed it in (not each time the film is loaded, just the first time.)
Once the film has fed through, switch on the lamp, focus and enjoy.

How do I stop my Dad's Bell & Howell projector from "skipping" while running a film, model L, design 122.


For a projector to run right, the motor has gear teeth in it that engage with the hollow points on the film itself. The motor has to turn at a steady speed with no friction or hesitation. It is possible the motor on the inside of the projector needs to be oiled or cleaned out...or rebuilt at worse.
There is also the motor that pulls the film thru the projector and winds it onto the receiving spool. Sometimes that motor is out of synch with the projector drive motor and trys to pull the film thru to fast or turns to slow and the you get that "clicking " sound when the receiving spool isn't winding the film up fast enough and the film gets dragged on by those projector teeth and make that plastic clicking sound.
Watch the film while it is running between the two reels and the projector lens. The film should be slightly taunt going into the projector and slightly taunt coming back out of the projector. If you see the film grouping up in front of the projector drive or after, then you know your spools are needing greased up or there is a drag on the motors causing things to be unsynchronized.

This is definitely a mechanical problem and you need to watch the film being fed into the projector and how it is wound up n the receiver spool to see where the fault lies.

I have a minolta autodual 8 film projector but the front reel is turning backwards in the wrong direction. How do I change the direction to turn in the same direction as the back reel.


I assume you haven't put a reel of film onto the projector and looped it through to the back spool. The front spool usually 'freewheels' whilst the film is pulled through the projector and taken up by the motor driven rear spool.
It is possible that the friction drive and/or drive belt have deteriorated with age, as the mentioned projector is a rather elderly 'classic' of the dual 8mm series.
If in doubt, don't risk your family pictures. Try the unit with an old piece of film on small spools.

When I insert a new roll of film into my Canon Rebel S 35mm SLR, it automatically rewinds the film instead of winding it onto the spool. I can't figure out why it's doing this.


this is normal, as these cameras are designed to wind the entire film to the take up spool then as you expose the file will roll back into the cassette. this was a feature that canon devised to protect already exposed film when the back cover is inadvertantly opened.

MX33 Bell & Howell collection reel does not turn


As this problem is not relevant to "Motherboards" you might like to post it in the right category. But, you might like to check for wear on the drive wheel (rubber) they become shiny over time and this will decrease the friction needed to move the film stock. Rubber is and organic compound and as such it deteriorates, my Akai reel to reel did a similar thing a few years ago and the part was no longer available, so I made one( re-engineered the old one actually). good luck

The bobbin winds really loose and uneven and then gets caught up when I'm sewing. I've checked I'm threading it correctly when winding... seems to be worse with polyester and embroidery thread. Help!


You need to keep tension on the thread spool as you wind the bobbin to avoid this from happening. Also, is there a little tension device to take the thread around between the spool and the bobbin winder? Some machines have a little silver button tensioner purely for bobbin winding to keep the thread flowing smoothly.

But I always do the following anyway just to ensure a smooth bobbin. Take the thread from your spool, through the eyelet or tensioner, then back to the bobbin and put the tail end up through a hole in the top of the bobbin. Now put the bobbin onto the winder and click it against the stop. Place the curved handle of a pair of scissors onto the top of the thread spool and apply some gentle pressure to stop the spool from bouncing and jumping while winding off. Keep doing this through the winding process.

Start the bobbin winding mechanisim, its a button on my Janome 6500, yours might be a little different. HOLD the thread tail until you've got coverage over the whole bobbin area catching the starting point. Stop, trim the thread tail off top of the bobbin with scissors, then restart winding again. Watch as the thread winds and give it a nudge with your finger tip to the top or bottom so the bobbin winds evenly across the whole spool's width.

Best analogy here is when you wind the garden hose onto the reel, if it goes on all over the place you never get the whole length on neatly, but if you wind it on neatly in an even tight coil across the spool, then back again, then repeat, you get a tidy hose. But just wind madly, it all builds up in the middle, you can't get it all onto the reel, and it won't pull out nicely next time you need it. Same thing with your SM thread.

Polyester and silky embroidery threads will be worse too as they are silky, so if the thread hasn't been wound on smoothly and under tension, then it will "collapse" with gravity, then when you use the bobbin, the thread is going to be caught on itself, will feed unevenly and be stretched, then loose, giving you less than perfect stitch tension.

My other bobbin tip is store the bobbins in a plastic bobbin tray so they are lying on their edges and under a cover. Keeps them neater and they are less likely to unwind stray threads around your sewing cabinet if you store them on the spool pins build onto the cabinet door - and it keeps the thread dust free. But I do not keep thread on bobbins for long, prefer to wind a fresh one off a new spool when I start a project and can usually complete a garment with a 3/4 filled bobbin, use the remaining few metres for handsewing, then junk the rest. Then I put the thread spool that is left back into a sealed takeway container to keep it away from UV, dust and moisture.

I hope this assists you with your machine and certainly if this doesn't resolve the bobbin issues, then I'd suggest you visit your dealer and ask them to demonstrate the technique on your machine to see if there is a technical issue with it.

Film is not winding on fully


Possible that the loading motor is having friction to load fully or that the film reel is too tight.
You can check the test without the film in place but by activation of the door switch.
If the reel pressure is good ,then the film reel might be badd or if the hand pressure stops the reel then the motor might be weak.
Hope the battery is charged. if not used recently let it run winding up to free.
