Tommy
Look for a Specto 500 or even a Pathe Vox both of which will be your top choice for 9-5. The Specto is a very popular machine, kind to film, has 500 watt lamp and a very good quality lens as standard. If you do get hold of a Specto and start looking for a short throw lens I have one for sale.
Happy days! [Smile]

You could also use a 200B but make sure it has extension arms.
