9.5

9.5

 

 9.5 was where I started in the 1960's. I've always been interested mainly in the sound side, but on the other hand I have an ongoing affection for the Pathé Baby. At present, I have about  30, tho' many are in an advanced state of decay. Here is the list of topics you can click on.

 1. 9.5 Sound

  My years spent trying to improve the quality of 9.5 sound, and some of the many efforts to convert 9.5 silent machines to sound. 

 2. 9.5 Silent

  Baby projector collections, equipment and catalogues (French and English), Coq D'Or, Lux, H, Duplex, Toy Projectors, and various 9.5

  silent machines that are as yet without their own pages.

 3. French Bits

  I got from Dave Wyatt some reprints of French 9.5 magazine articles,

  about stencil colour etc., reproduced here in translation.

  A home for odd bits.

  An economy 9.5 tape splicer
