An incredibly rare projector, especially in the excellent condition that this example is in. The Bolex Paillard "G3 Trifilm" cine projector that amazingly can play 8mm, 9.5mm and 16mm films. It comes with a cased change-over kit to allow you to change the gauge between the different widths of film.
It also comes with a wonderful looking transformer. It comes in a very strong and well-made thick wooden carrying case. This particular projector has a crest on the side from the "National Film Agency (NFA)" who were based at Victoria Street in Manchester. There are also 2 spare belts with it, and one bulb but I think the bulb has already blown (there is a little loose bit rattling around inside). It's a stunning looking projector, with solid metal body, great design, really well made and with sturdy carrying handle on the top.
Sadly I cannot test this projector as it seems to be missing the power lead that would go from the transformer to the mains socket. There is a lead from the projector that plugs into the transformer but that is all.
I have shown as best as I can in the pictures. It also needs a lens as this one does not have one present. The ones I have are 24mm diameter smaller end (the end that goes into the projector), and these fit perfectly into this projector. Please see pictures to appreciate the condition of this item. A very rare chance to obtain an incredibly scarce projector in this condition.
CONDITION REPORT : This is about as good an example as you will see - in excellent condition. Lovely clean and tidy condition and with transformer, boxed change-over kit and very large and well-made hard carrying case. MAJOR POINTS TO NOTE - NO LENS AND MISSING POWER LEAD TO CONNECT TRANSFORMER TO POWER SUPPLY - therefore this projector is completely UNTESTED, and I have no idea if it works.Please see pictures to appreciate the incredible condition of this item. The projector & case alone weigh 21.2kgs and so once packed (very securely) will be up to around 25kgs I imagine. I will send by Parcel Force 24hr.
