Del had the very same one I had first in early 70's!! Amazing!!! Ha ha ha.
Somewhere on here I posted I photo of it. No rewind facility, you had to turn the reels around.
6v motorcycle bulb and the equivalent brightness to a torch.....I loved it!!! Ha ha ha.
Mine came from Kay's catalogue for a Xmas pressie from mum and dad and initially I had 2 x 50ft silent shorts to go with it Woodpecker from Mars and Do You Like Snow, both b/ w.
In the box the projector came with was a 30ft short of Tweetie Pie in colour!!!!!, WOW! Ha ha ha.
I wish my dad had worked for Casdon instead of being a printer in the days Sogat had clout. Ha ha ha.
Anyhow Casdon should have been paid a kings ransom by the likes of Elmo and Derann.
Here we still are, Del and I, buying cine gear to this day, still keen as ever!
Incidentally, it was noisier than the Beaulieu, the Casdon could handle 200ft of film, the Beaulieu 2200ft! ..go figure??
It was my Dads brother, my uncle Fred that pointed it out to me in the catalogue. Before that I was showing him one of those kids slide projectors with cartoons on a strip of card.
"Here you go r Andrew," he said. "This is what you want, a cinematograph!" He termed it as.
And the rest as they say, is now history. I do hope somehow he's watching down on me now with the films, he'd have loved to have seen a few I'm certain.
My Dad told me of the time my Uncle Fred had brought a top title home from the cinema where he had been working! Ha ha ha. He took it back the next day somehow without anyone realizing what he'd done but apparently he showed that film somehow in my Gran and Grandads house to my Dad, his other brothers and a few of his mates! A rum old bugger was my Uncle Fred!
Ah happy days eh.
It were very very late last night sorry when Speed ended. I will put SS's on here today though sorry.
