An old movie world codger who started showing films when he was 8 was just moved into a nursing home and I was asked to look at a pile of equip that he had in his bedroom. A big old 16 Filmoarc 140-0 Bell and howell with carbon arc , stand, etc. It looks dusty but in good shape. Is it worth anything to anyone? He also had a number of portable units in their snap shut boxes: any use?

The 140 was made with two different stands: a roll around stand or a tripod leg style stand. The B&H 140 complete is worth about $500 to $1,000. Post a message on film-center.com forums since they primarily deal with 16mm. I know there'd be interest there.

It's an excellent machine. The carbon arc lamphouse and rectifier are made by Strong and in reality are Strong "Junior Hi" models.

Heck, I wouldn't mind having it myself. I'd set it up at the Skyline drive in theater (where I work) and run a few 16mm cartoons on the big screen!

On the film-center.com forum, user named jolson13 is looking for just this type of projector.

The 140 was very popular and in production from 1938 thru the mid 50's. A letter "O" in the model indicates one of the last production runs. I believe that version had a 50 watt amplifier included.
