First off, if you're here, you already know what you're getting! Thanks for coming, and enjoy the photos!For sale is a wonderful, rare, Antique Powers Cameragraph No. 6B Film Projector patents dating to 1916 on the nameplate. The projector is in great condition and all gears turn smoothly and quietly (no missing teeth or gear damage from what I can tell either). There is no crank handle but there's a pulley that should work well with the included DRIVE MOTOR! I've had a real hard time finding any information whatsoever on the drive motors for these models, so I hope the pictures help you out... there are numberings on most of the parts from R11 through R50ish or so from what i can tell...on the motor (which turns smoothly by the way! - but the cord does have some fraying and should be replaced - I haven't tested it because of this, but it looks like it should run with a good cord and the right voltage supply)There is some light corrosion in various places...but what do you expect...its almost 100 years old (some might even dare call it "patina")... check out the photos, I don't think any of it should be of concern and couldn't be cleaned up easily.Check out the photos... I took plenty and posted even more to photobucket here: pictured is included, the two film magazines (both stamped with the powers name) - they're in decent condition, have some damage to them, but should be functional, the projector itself, the motor, the reel, the number 2 shutter, the powers baseplate (might not actually be from this camera...but I got it with the rest of the equipment) and the two, what I think might be, arc rod holders (check the pictures, they're not marked anywhere i could see with the exception of a 1 and 2 painted on them), and the two film magazines. Also included is the lens which has a Nicholas Power Co - New York brass sleeve/adapter, and a Sunray Wollensak Rochester 6" Focus Lens - not sure the lens is right for the projector, but like i said, it came with what I got, so you get it too! Thanks for looking, and good luck offerding on this piece of motion picture history!
I have other lenses from old projectors as well that will be going up in the next week or two, as well as another bare number 6 cameragraph without any of the extras seen here. Both look outfitted to handle the motor via pulley, but I chose to include it with this projector as it is more complete.
