After 9 months of storing it (and learning how to use it) at the office, my wife and two sons went out of town for the weekend, leaving me with my 2 yr old daughter. I thought........"this is my chance!" Loaded it up at the office, first to head downstairs was the base.

Next was speakers, double mut, sound head, projector head, and lamphouse - was so tired by that point, thought I was going to drop the lamp!

Luckily my measurements were spot-on, the top reel just fits!

Ran all the wires and electrical cords, and did a sound and picture test - no screen yet, the concrete wall will have to suffice for now. Upon her return, my wife was surprisingly (and thankfully) very cool about it! Which is good, because I wouldn't have the strength to move it back upstairs anyway!

Next step will be to search for large reels for the double-mut, but until that time I will be more than happy to run 20min reels! My ultimate goal is to finish that half of the basement, build a projection booth (its quite a load machine), and have a permanent set-up for 8mm, Super 8, 16mm and 35mm. I've got my work cut out for me, but at least its fun work!
