I turned the brightness up to max on my monitor and it turns out it's a picture of a toaster

Bolex did make a little std 8mm projector that does resemble a
toaster when the side cover is on, I have a Magnon,exactly the

mistaken for that kitchen appliance.

I'm very excited about one of these. The only problem I could see with projecting bread is it would soon fade....to green.

The trick is to get it "breaded up" correctly Jonathan,it stops it
burning in the gate.Self "Breaders" are to be avoided, they tend
to be a bit "crumby".

Well done Jonathan, just like the toast, but not too "browned off"
I hope.
