1) Any difference in desirability between a Telex or Singer Instaload projector?

2) Where can I find instructions to this projector?

Thanks!

1) The Telex is the later version of the Singer Instaload and is basically the same. I have a Graflex 16 Model 821 which is also similar.
2) Manuals are available to down load on the Film Tech site, look under 16mm projectors and then Graflex.

Thanks Maurice!

How do these projectors rate? Are they good ones to get?

I have a large collection of projectors most of which are Bell & Howell. However, I got my Graflex relatively cheap and it performs quite well but I wouldn't go mad over it. [Big Grin]
Like all projectors the problem will probably come when it needs replacement parts and I am not sure of their availability.
If you do decide to buy I suggest you see it working before you make up your mind.

I have a Singer Graflex 1000G. It is a nice, quiet, reliable projector with good sound. I like it.
