So I have always loved how electronics from the 50’s and 60’s worked. They are simple and efficient machines to say the least. I remember taking apart an old fan from the 60’s when I was a kid just to see how it worked. I recently acquired an old school late 50’s 16mm projector from my friend Ian . The projector is in really good shape but doesn’t work. To be honest I dont have any film lying around but I would like to make this work again as it has become an interesting conversation piece in our home. After several beers and sheer boredom I decided to open the projector up and have a look. The problem is actually very simple, after testing the switch (Ian Hinted It could be this) I discovered that it was toast. So I removed the switch and will try to source a new one at Radio Shack tomorrow. Here are a few pics.
