to anyone that still has and uses a SLIDE projector if you store it in a cool room and want to use it bring it out and let it get room temp before you plug it in or turn it on, speaking from last nights experence the bulb will EXPLODE if it is cold when you turn it on...still picking glass out of my neck and face. i might be dumb but i had no idea that 15* diff of temp would do that. now i know...just wanted to pass it along...

PS: anybody got a bulb they want to sell????? have a good 1-------shan

I have had projector and movie light bulbs explode WITHOUT the temperature difference. I think sometimes it is just their time to go!

i work for a community college, we have old strip projectors that we used to surplus. i would purchase a pallet load for a buck or two. take the lenses out for the kids to play with. one day one of the lenses, laying on my bench, shattered for no apparent reason. glad noones eyes were close to it.

Now that is a lesson that I bet will not be soon forgotten.
