SOME OF THE SPECIAL ADVANTAGES OF THE

5.7 MECHANISM

SYNCHRONIZED FRONT AND REAR SHUTTERSeShutters are on the some shaft and each shutter acts upon one-half of the beam, creating a

dissolving effect and giving I2'/2%>more light. More light, sharper picture, LESS EYE STRAIN.

AUTOMATIC FIRE SHUTTER SAFETY TRIP-Releases fire shutter when film remains stationary. Cuts of? light and heat. Absolute Fire Safety.

ONE-SHOT OILING SYSTEM-By a slight pressure on the oil pump lever,

filtered goil is supplied in sufficient quantity at all times. Cleaner Picture, Better Show, Longer Life, Less Maintenance.

E-75 AIR DEFLECTOR AND APERTURE COOLING UNIT-Improves Light. Reduces Heat at the Aperture. Keeps Mechanism Cleaner. Prevents drawing of gasses from the arc lamp into the proiection room.

REMOVABLE FILM GATE-Readily Demountable for Cleaning and Adiustment.

FILM GATE STUDSeGate wobble eliminated. Help Steady the Image. Proof Against Wear.

CONE-SHAPED PAD SPRINGSePad keeps both edges of film under equal tension. Reduces Sprocket Wear. .

TENSION PAD AND INTERMITTENT SHOE COMBINATIONeHoIds Film Securely for Steady Image.

DEMOUNTABLE FILM TRAPmParticles of emulsion can be easily cleaned away between reels. Avoids Scratching Film. '

STUDIO TYPE GUIDES-Side motion of film controlled by replaceable guides acting in conjunction with guide rollers. Prevent Side Sway of Film.

FRAMING LAMP-*Directly behind aperture. Reduces Mis-framing.

ILLUMINATED, WHITE INTERIOR-Dirt can be easily seen and promptly removed. Promotes Cleanliness.

SIGHT BOX-Easily removable, New fin construction. Dissipates Heat.

REAR SHUTTER COOLING FINSeDraw the air backward from aperture and pass it around outside the mechanism. Insure Much Cooler Film Path.

REAR SHUTTER GUARDeCan be quickly removed without disturbing lamphouse. Simplifies Cleaning.

RING TYPE GOVERNOR FOR FIRE SHUTTEReUnique type of control operates on principle of a gyroscope. Bind-Proof, Silent.

OVERSIZE DRIVE GEARSeRevolve on fixed studs. Place pressure of operas

tion Where it causes least wear. Rebushing of main frame eliminated. Longer life, Easier Maintenance.

SYNCHRONIZING DEVICEePrevents backlash and travel ghost caused by wear in shutter assemblies. Gives Sharper Picture.

DOUBLE BEARING ARM AND COVERaWarp-Proof Under Any Lamp.

INTERMITTENT MOVEMENT-Readily removable. Unnecessary to take down or disturb any part of the soundhead. Facilitates Maintenance.

INTERMITTENT MOVEMENT OIL SYSTEM*Reservoir can be filled from either side. Excess oil overtiows on drive side. Prevents Blurred Pictures, Noisy Sound.

SHOCK PROOF GEAR-Eliminates vibration caused by the action of the intermittent movement. Results in Quieter, Smoother Operation.
