Re: Eclair ACL Tobin ACL motor

I am quite desperate for a motor because my ACL still has the old single speed
I am a bit disapointed with the looks of the new Tobin one, but looks aren´t

It would be great if a couple of close up pics were added to the motor page, as
it is difficult to see details.

As some of you already know I live in Spain, so I would like to ask Clive Tobin
what´s the best way to send him my camera should I decide buying a motor. Is it
enough to send just the body without a motor and mag?....

I am also interested in a price list from Les Bosher, speacially for the matte
box and mini rods.

Good points.  I don't want anyone to think that I was dismissing the motor
entirely, and indeed we should hear from someone first.  Given Clive's other
work it is bound to be a solid product whether it handholds well or not.
