Prevost Film Projector User Guide
NOTE: BRING A SPLICER, SPLICING TAPE AND LEADER to repair splices and breaks that may occur while projecting. WILL ALSO NEED 2 SPLIT REELS to use this double system projector.
Make sure use a take up reel with at least a 4 inch hub or larger. Can’t use split reels as take up reels.
Can and should use split reels for the supply feed reel. Put film on a split reel and put sound mag on a split reel as well.
Thread the film off the supply reel and put the film into the gate so that the hole punch shows through the window of the projector gate.
Make sure the Breaking Sprocket turns freely. Shouldn’t be tight. Turn black knob to loosen.
Follow the threading example below to see how to thread the film through the system. Will have to go through 4 gates. See additional frame
Lastly wind on to the 4inch or larger hub take up reel.
MAKE SURE THAT ALL 4 OF THE GATES BELOW ARE CLOSED. IF NOT CLOSED WILL TEAR FILM.
