I finally scored a local 16mm projector!  The B&H 1550 Autoload Filmosound 16mm sound projector was purchased new by a church, saw little use, and has sat in storage for 20some years.  $45 :)  It looks great but I don't want to try & fire it up just yet.  Specifically, I've heard of a plastic worm gear that needs specific lubrication but I've no idea where that gear is or how to get to it.  Any guidance would be appreciated.  Anything else that I may want to look at?  I acquired a box full of 16mm films (mostly educational) for free 2 years ago and have been looking for a projector since.  Regardless of the film, I'm really looking forward to hearing it run & seeing the screen (complete with hairs & such).  Thanks, Tom

Exactly what I was looking for.  Thanks!  I found http://www.acofs.org...1552,1552EX.PDF  yesterday which also looks pretty useful.
