ALDIS 303 UPCYCLED COLOUR SLIDE PROJECTOR LAMP.

£79.99

This is a stunningly good cosmetic condition Aldis 303 projector which we have upcycled into an exceptionally distinctive decorative lamp. Originally this was a 35mm colour slide projector. This has been in our family since the 1960s.

It has been stripped down and the majority of the internal components have been removed partially to reduce the weight and also so that there can be no possibility of any electrical fault. While stripped down we have cleaned the inside thoroughly.

We have left the front undertray levelling plate in place and re-sprung it so that it does operate correctly via the black Bakelite control knob on the side. This allows a small amount of movement in the height of the lamp.

We have fitted a new bronze batten lamp holder complete with a vintage style 60w Crystallite Antique G80 Globe ES Clear Squirrel Cage Filament bulb. The lamp holder has been wired using 3 metres of new HD black & gold 3 core fabric cable (so the lamp is correctly earthed) allowing a lot of flexibility in positioning the lamp and finally, a new 5amp fuse has been fitted into the mains plug. New grommets have been used on the cable on all entry points so stop any future chaffing.

Definitely a unique item which will provide a great talking point in your living room or office.
