I purchased this Nicholas Powers No 6 Cameragraph projector head off of Ebay. This was manufactured in the 1900's and made in New York. When I received it was dirty and frozen. After extensive cleaning and oiling I got it to move. There is a idler gear between the constant moving film sprockets and the intermediate film sprocket. There were some teeth missing off it so my next thing was to have someone make me a new gear for it. That was sort of expensive but I wanted it to work properly. I received the new gear and it worked perfectly. It had no crank and no lens on it. I had some old Victrola cranks which I modified it to fit. I also had some old lenses that worked out. I also had a lamphouse from a Keystone Moviegraph which provided the light source. I put a 400 watt bulb in that. I made the reel arms, film guides and made a fan belt for it. I mounted everything to a board and here it is. The film I project on it is 35mm safety film from my collection. When I took the footage from the projector for You Tube I had to record it from a angle since I had to crank it. You can get quite a workout, those Projectionist in those days had to work hard. The Picture when you are watching on the screen is clear and look very good. My next step is to motorize it .Thank You for looking.
