DOUG WARREN-A Personal Thank You!!!

#1 by Timothy Duncan ( deleted ) , Fri Jan 29, 2016 4:07 pm

It's my turn to brag on my long distance pal whom I call Doug (Douglas Warren of this forum). I met him through correspondence by means of another forum over a year ago. He has become my good pal, not only because of his generosity, but we have a genuine long distance friendship. We have never spoken in person, but we email one another often. We discuss various things in addition to film, but we both have the film bug in common for sure! It's fun to send one another links to films for sale/auction, report our latest finds and projector repair experiences. But because of this gentleman, he has helped to keep my passion for this hobby alive. Last year, I had a few bad buying experiences with some machines. Throughout this journey, he has so generously given me two very well running machines, an unused movie camera from 1976, films, reels, supplies, accessories and much advice. I wanted to share some photos of these items that he has given me that mean so much because they came from him.

KODAK INSTAMATIC M50 SUPER 8 MOVIE PROJECTOR

BELL & HOWELL 346A SUPER 8 MOVIE PROJECTOR

BELL & HOWELL 670XL SUPER 8 MOVIE CAMERA with a N.O.S. box of KODAK EKTACHROME COLOR MOVIE FILM (I'm so tempted to open it!)

SPARE REELS AND SUPPLIES/ACCESSORIES (which have gone to good use, I might add!)

VARIOUS FILMS (BOTH SILENT & SOUND)

DISNEY TITLE CARDS (for making your own super 8 movies)



I hope that I haven't caused any embarrassment Doug, but I thought that the guys should know what kind of fellow you really are!

I forgot to mention that he also sent spare DJL bulbs (very highly sought after as well as expensive) with the Bell & Howell machine!

It really goes without saying, Doug is Top Man, along side his buddy from the USA, two good lads, who we are proud to have
in our midst, indeed there are many great folk on here, from our Figurehead Vidar, to Andrew, David and many more. Douglas has shown
what a kind soul he is, the Dynamic Duo of our Forum, I've found that the luniacs like us, look after our own, can't be a bad thing.

My pal from Ohio is now sending me a spare DNE bulb for my sound machine and some regular 8 splicing tapes. Thank you so much Doug! I've got some leader and a couple of films ready for those tapes as soon as they arrive!
