    The projector is in working condition, with working light bulb and fan. I haven't used it, but did some basic cleaning. The condensers need cleaning as well as the bulb and reflector needs polishing (pitted). There is a slide changing gizmo with a 2 1/4" gate - not sure how it works. I have seen bulbs on ebay for $8-12. This doesn't have an on/off switch, so might want to use a power strip.

    The lens has a bit of fog, apertures fine. There is a great long focus brass helical mount.

    There is a sturdy wooden case whose hardware is rusty.

    $25 plus postage. Heavy item, but I can ship standard mail (parcel post).

    Jon;

    I have an older type and a Polaroid , made by American Optical. Don't need another one but it looks very nice.

    Just a comment. The slide changer in pic #3 is reversed. The Red handle should be on the operators right.

    I have 2.25"x2.25" metal frames with and without the glass. Those frames will work well in your projector.
