This is the Kodak Ektagraphic III A carousel slide projector.
Here is a reliable projector that will show your Father's old 35mm slide photos in style. It is a high-quality vintage Kodak machine that is in great condition. It comes with its own 80 slide self feeding gravity drop circular slide tray shown in the photo.
This quality Kodak machine also comes with a cord plug-in remote control for moving the slide tray forward, back from a considerable distance. The front center foot is screw adjustable to aim the photo light beam at the desired screen whether it be on a light wall or bed sheet hung on the wall.
The electrical plug-in cord stores neatly under the machine, and the light bulb is easily changed by opening its access door on the side of the machine. Bulbs are still available at camera shops and in this store or you can contact me by clicking the CONTACT US button on any item page and I and I will find one for you.
There is also a SELECT button on the unit which will allow you to spin the tray around to a certain slide position if desired. The manual focus knob is also located on the main console which moves the lens in and out for best focused picture.
This particular unit has AUTO FOCUS which means it will automatically focus all subsequent slides after you focus the first slide of the reel. This unit has the additional feature of switching off auto-focus should you not want to use it for some reason.
This particular projector is also special as it has an Apollo f/3.5 Zoom lens which will allow showing slides at nearly any distance, both closeup and further away.
There is also a reading light on the side of the projector that lights up when the main projector lamp is showing slides. This allows you to read from a script to your guests if that is helpful for you.
This machine is all you could ever want in a fine slide projector. You can also purchase extra slide trays separately in my store by looking under the Photo & Movie Equipment category.
