1940s Bell and Howell Filmo Master 400 8mm Projector Design 122 Model G

This is a truly beautiful machine.

It looks as if it were made yesterday.

It comes in a fantastic wood case with felt-lined supports that fit the projector perfectly.

A neat little oil can is also included and would add a nice touch to a display.

The projector motor and bulb both work.

Please note - The bulb in this machine is likely to be nearly 70 years old may be fragile.
I cannot guarantee it will work after being shipped.
I highly suggest replacing the bulb if you intend to use this machine.

I believe the plastic looking parts are actually Bakelite.

Two empty reels are included as well.

Specs:

*Some sources date this projector to the mid 1930s, and others to about 1940. To be safe, I am saying 1940s.

*Lamp 500 Watts Max.

*Filmo "Master" 400 8mm

*Design 122

*Model G

*115 Volt

*5 Amp

*Made in U.S.A.

*Approx: 13" High X 11" Deep X 6" Wide

*Run / Rewind Settings

*Serial Number 522423

The case has a textured coating and is made of painted wood.

It features black metal hardware and a leather handle.

The door has holders for the reels.

It has a number "8" on the door.

The oil can is a really neat little find.

It measures 3 1/2" tall and says: "Filmo PROJECTOR OIL."
