Hello everyone!

Does anyone has some informations / recommendations about the "carpenter" 16 mm sound projector? I have the possibility to buy this one from a acquaintance, but would like to know something more about this machine, i have never seen this one earlier.


All the best, Nick.

It looks like an old machine but in good condition, cosmetically at least.

The only other machine I've seen which thread from the left like this is a Phillips model.
I'm not sure I would ever be able to get used to the arrangement. [Smile]

I wish this arrangement was much more common than it is: I run two machines a lot and running them left handed/right and back to back would be nice in tight spaces.

The narrow valley in between is awkward with controls inside with both machines right-handed. I don't like over the top/between the reels focus/frame maneuver.

It’s a beautiful machine too!

All I ask is a wide screen and a projector to light her by...
