Hello. I you can't find the specific belt you need from other sources,
or it costs an arm and a leg for original parts, try looking for an
o-ring supplier. I work a lot of medical conventions, and one time saw this display
of o-rings of many sizes. I was told there are many companies that sell them, and
you can order them by diameter and thickness.
Also, I like my auto loader, it works just fine.

The following is a good source for Eiki parts.
2232 Loch Lomond Drive
Vienna, VA 22181
Also, Dwight Cody of the Boston Film Connection may have Eiki parts on hand or know of a source close to you.
For Bell & Howell try Larry Urbanski in Illinois. In fact, if you want to find 16mm projector parts go to www.16mmfilmtalk.com, these
folks are much better organized than the exp film community when it comes to 16mm supplies and parts. The forum is actually run
BTW, get rid of that autoloader, those projectors should be cast off into landfills, or the ocean, don't project film on them.

this summer i posted about DIY projector belt repair... but now, i'm looking to buy actual "proper" belts.
while it was fun to make my own belts out of fuel injection tubing and super glue... and it did work for a while in a pinch... over time, the fuel injection tubing belts stretched and i was back to prodding the take up reel along with my fingers...
so where should i go to order proper belts for the following projectors? i'ill be ordering from canada and will need to have them shipped.
Eiki RT-0 (16mm manual load)
Bell & Howell Filmosound model 2585A (16mm autoload)
