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
