I have been working on getting more slide projectors working. This is what we have:

Bodies:

Kodak Ektapro 4010 - 300W, working, in cafe.
Kodak Ektapro 3000 - 300W, working now, in action room.
Kodak S-AV 1030 - 250W, working now, I have it, missing side panel.

There was a Hanimar body too but its transformer is fucked, it's dead. We could sell its lens on eBay as it's useless to our other ones.

Lenses:

2 x Kodak S-AV 70-120mm f/3.5 (fit Ektapro or S-AV types)

I am on the lookout for a really good lens for the Ektapros. Preferably a f/2.8 or f/2.5 wide-ish prime. These go for cheap on eBay occasionally.

Bulbs:

There are spare 150W and 250W bulbs in the strategy & details draws.

Nice one. Can the projector in the cafe be set up to change slides automatically?

Update: All of the projectors are now in the cafe.

Correction to the lenses:

1x Kodak VARIO-RETINAR S-AV 1000 75-120mm, aperture not marked but probably f/3.5, screw focus.

1x Docter VARIO-DOCTARLUX 70-120mm f/3.5 MC, rack focus.

Either will fit in any of the projectors.

The Docter is probably optically the best. I've cleaned all the elements inside and out, and have put it in the Ektapro 4010. Do note however that the zoom ring on the front is loose. When turning it keep it pushed in towards the body, watch the zoom group moving inside, and make sure you don't try to move it beyond its range or you'll have to put it back together again (easy but annoying).

Graeme, none of these have timers but they all have cable remote sockets so we can plug one in easily enough (and it can be a simple homebuilt 555 circuit). The S-AV 1030 has a remote, but this doesn't fit the Ektapros.

Note that the Ektapros have a much, much more even light distribution than the S-AV model as well as being 50W brighter.

We now also have a Doctarlux PC 45mm f/2.8 MC lens. This is a very wide angle lens. It should be just right to fill the gallery window from the back of the gallery.
