I have just come across another GoldBerg Bros rewind table Model E.
Some one has cut the wires inside, so I need a wireing diagram to rewire it............does anyone have a page on this.......maybe it could be faxed or copied in some way.

Thanks in advance,

Paul

Two thoughts
If the wires have simply been 'cut'

1/ just join the wires up that colour match.
2/ lay the loom down and inspect what lines up.
3/ No third idea!

BTW; The last word in the topic.

Bill, What you meant to list was this.....

1. Goldberg is one of the worst run companies I've ever encountered [thumbsdown] . They used to be great not too long ago though!

2. Sell the table or relegate it to workbench status [thumbsup]

3. Buy a Kelmar instead. They have always been a first rate company and very likely always will be [Smile] .

Those Goldberg machines look great, but are terrible on film. I'd suggest that you put the thing on display in the theatre lobby and then buy the Kelmar that someone is selling in the For Sale forum for actual film work.

Ditto, Goldberg rewinders are pure evil. Toss it.

(If you do get the wiring instructions though, send it in and I'll convert it to pdf and post it on the assumption someone else wants to resurrect one of those evil things.)

Okay, Why is the Goldberg rewind table such a bad deal?
How is it hard on film?

Rewinders that don't allow gradual acceleration of the film roll are very likely to cinch (scratch) the film, especially if the roll is wound loosely. Likewise, any rewind that doesn't slow gradually at the end of the roll will likely damage the "slapping" film end.

There are so many wires, many same color..........thats the problem.
This rewind has a reastat for veriable speed........someone just cut all the wires......even the wall input 110 v line.
A schematic sure would be most helpful.

John,

Are you saying that there is/was in the market a film rewinder that doesn't permit the gradual acceleration/deceleration? Just ON/OFF switch??

Bye

Wolk and Neumade both had rewinds with a 1/8 or 1/4 HP motor that literally were OFF and ON (The Neumade did have a reduction gearbox for handling large reels).
