hello, I just recently picked up a Bell&Howell design 481 A 8MM and Super8 projector. I was wandering if anyone could tell me the year of manufacture and any useful info on it? I tried to research it online but couldnt come up with much on it. Overall it seems to be in good condition and seems to operate properly. I dont have any films yet, but will soon. thanks

Hi Ben, here's little bit of info http://www.super8data.com/database/projectors_list/projectors_bell/bell_481.htm

The year of manufacture isn't clear but super 8 came in by the mid 60s and I think B&H had wound up producing their own 8mm machines by about 1980 so you have a 15 year window. Based on the look of the projector I would think this was a late 60s machine,
John
