FS: Newly machined DeVry 35mm model D and XD fire rollers.

PostWed Mar 12, 2014 12:32 pm

I am offering newly machined, exact replacement parts for both large and small fire rollers used in the DeVry 35mm Model D and XD 35mm projectors.

Made from steel stock in the USA!

I only have 9 available and the price covers the costs for my missing rollers and eBay and PayPal fees.

For those interested, back before the 1950s most motion picture film stock could catch fire if jammed in the hot film gate.

As the film burned closer to the rollers, the rollers would close automatically preventing further travel of the flame to the reels.

Some people took them out in later years but this can cause the film to rub on other parts of the projector, scratching the film.
