Super news - congratulations!

(Incidentally, what are the arcs you are using to load-up the set?)

Thank you. The carbon arcs are 'Gaumont-Kalee Universal's. I may upgrade to the 'President' arcs if I can find some. I would also like to upgrade my GK 18 pedestal-type stands to the GK 20 box-type stands.

Interesting... I actually have a pair of GK President arcs! Super lamps, they threw a very clear picture on the periscope display.

Are you using them with the matching projectors? My GK Universal arcs are on the back of GK 20 projectors with GK 83 and magnetic soundheads. All currently mounted on the GK18 pedestal-type stands. As well as some President arcs, I am hoping to find some GK 20 box-type stands and 3-Dimension spool boxes. I have one box-type stand but need a pair to use, and that one's unfortunately missing the control and wiring boxes. I am aiming to make-up the GK 20 CinemaScope outfit circa 1955.
