I projected a short film last night Hurry Hurry W.C.Fields onto a piece of paper ... just to see how the projector ran.

Got to admit I was like a kid in a sweet shop ha ha

Big thanks to David Guest for helping me get to this stage.

Hi David, well she ran a bit on the noisy side but I guess that's not a surprise considering she's been mothballed for so long.
The next mission will be to get the amp inspected/working so that I can enjoy the sound of the film as well [Wink]
