REWINDING.After you have completed
your showing and all the film is on the takeup
reel, turn the motor-lamp switch to the OFF
position. The film should be rewound onto the
front reel and made ready for showing again.
NOTE: The lamp should have been turned off

the motor and fan are stopped.
Listed below are the five steps for rewinding
most projectors. With the motor-lamp switch in
the OFF position, do the following:

and lift up slightly. Press the takeup reel arm
release button and swing the reel arm to the
vertical REWIND position.
(2) Attach the end of the film to the under-
side of the front reel. Rotate the front reel
counterclockwise by hand for two turns to

rewound directly from the takeup reel to the
supply reel. This may be brought about by
