     As the bearer of this particular problem,  I appreciated everyone's
help.  It's nice to have a place where you can bring up the oddest problems
and get thoughtful insight from so many folks.   
     Our origininal problem was flutter transferring from the tach assembly
to the sepmag. 
Dave thought our problem might be picking.  To me, this is the most logical
explanation, yet: 
Rank tried several replacements of the entire tach assembly with no change
The problem happens with _every_ piece of film, consistently.  It happens
with negatives, prints, or just leader.  It happens with 16 or 35 mm film
(although with less flutter at 35)... 
So if it is picking, it's a humdoozer of a case! 
Robert, admiring Mike's taste in Champagnes...
