Somewhere out there an electric fan is missing its finger guard as well!

There is a store near me that offers video transfers of 8mm film (You know: before it "disintegrates"). They have a Keystone 8mm machine sitting in the window with a pair of Super-8 reels dangling loosely on the spindles. When I walk past I think how sad it is it will never project a film again.

-almost calls for some sort of rescue mission!

All I ask is a wide screen and a projector to light her by...

I believe the top is part of the cooling system for the HTI conversion.

I think the idea could catch on! This has inspired me to work on my own design.

Hi Dan,
I think the translation of bauer is 'farmer' so it's possibly a colander,
