This Bell & Howell projector is a Dual 8 projector. It will run both the Super 8 movies and the Standard 8mm movies. It is a self-threading film model. It has a Forward, Still and Reverse mode. Take a close look at the photos and I think you will quickly see all the capabilities of this unit.
You can switch from Super 8 to Standard 8mm film with a flip of the lever on the main control panel. You can also flip to Rewind with a special Run/Rewind lever on the control panel. This machine has a brand new bulb installed plus a new rubber feed tire installed also.
This unit is in good operating condition. To play Regular 8mm film, all you do is flip a switch and remove the spindle adapter and install the 8mm full film reel which has a smaller hub. The spindle adapter allows Super 8 reels to fit on the feed spindle by inserting the adapter into the Super 8 reel of film, then sliding the whole reel on the spindle. Removing that Super 8 feed spindle adapter converts the spindle to the smaller reel hub which is for the Standard 8mm film reels---very good design and simple.
The empty take-up reel snaps to the inside cover for storage. The light is clear and bright on this machine and it has been serviced and is ready for duty.
Should you ever need a new bulb or extra movie reels, you can order them in this store. Check the main index which is on the left of every item page.
