The DeVry Portable Projector

I acquired a Model E 35mm DeVry Suitcase projector (1921) from Cahercon Estate, Co. Clare about a year ago. I've finally built up enough courage to attempt to renovate it.

It is a beautiful piece of machinery, simple in its design, basic electrics (if not a little outdated!), flame retardant (coated in aesbestos) for early nitrate film and most importantly the mechanics are clean considering it's age.

I've currently deconstructed the whole projector and thankfully the original wooden case is just about staying together. Time to clean and rebuild.

I will try and document the process here over the next year or how ever long it takes.

 Show me a digital projector survive 100 hundreds and I will snort the asbestos.
