Film splicers

We notice that not many filmmakers edit super8 the way it was supposed to be; with a splicer with tape or cement.

You could say that these splicers are of no use any more. In a way that could be true, editing with digital media has great advantages, but some splicers are a true pleasure to work with. These splicers are not for sale, they are part of the Super8 Reversal Lab’s collection.

The most used splicer of today I guess. You’ll find it everywhere at flea markets and 2nd hand stores. It’s nice to work with these types, but you must be careful that you get a new one. Once it’s damaged, you can’t fix it.

Würker Trocken Klebepresse S8
Year: +/- 1972
Method: dry.
Tape: separate tape-parts.
Availability: unknown [I thought yes]
A very nice splicer for super8 film makers. It cuts and splices very good and won several ‘prices’.

Catozzo C.I.R. M.3 Super8-2T Special
Year: +/- 1970
Method: dry.
Tape: rolls un-perforated tape (€10,00).
Availability tape: easy to buy.
From the famous Dr. Leo Catozzo, this metal splicer is the best super8 splicer there is in the world. Very expensive to buy [in 2020 I see prices of €600,00] and very cheap in the use of tape. It can hold super8 and 16mm wide tape. The lab’s favourite.
