I'm after a lamp resistor for this splendid machine. I need the 1000w 120v version. Does anyone have one for sale, if so please drop me a line.
Alternatively I gather that the resistors were also made available as a kit with various possible positions for fitting the spiral on the ceramic plug, depending on the required configuration. Does anyone have more info ?

the thick wire wounded resitor on top of ceramic body can easily be shorten by a piece of copper wire. Then you have converted lamp voltage for use with a 110V transformer. The thin wire wounded resistor at bottom of ceramic body can be shorten in similar way. Siemens did employ here a small wire wounded resistor for softer regulation. If required I could measure Ohm value, when I am back home.
PS: If you use original Siemens "Regelfix" adjustable transformer with special 3 pole socket, we can supply special 3 pin plug to connect it to mains cord of projector.
