Accidental Analog Story Week: Pt 2

A couple months ago, I found an old slide projector at a thrift store for $5, complete with a tray of old family film slides. Took it home to try it out; the fan worked, but the bulb didn't.

I looked around online, found some new old stock bulbs, and about a week later, they arrived in the mail. In my excitement to get everything working, I BROKE THE SLIDE LOADER ON THE TRAY.

So, that's where I've been for the last few months, BUT YESTERDAY I found a new replacement tray for $0.99 and now we're BACK IN BUSINESS.

Also, I realized it makes a pretty cool light source.

i have my dad's old projector and agree with you 100% - the bulbs are insanely bright. it's fun to draw / print things out on transparency paper and put them into the slide tray.. instant art!
