    I spent some time in Scotland and Ireland recently installing and calibrating projectors. While I was there one customer asked if I could help him with some tubes he was thinking of advertising. 'Sure' I said. "Condition is everything, so let's take some photos with and without flash...


    Here are the results. See what you think ;)

    Personally, I think we have set a new standard on Curt Palmes scale.

    To paraphrase Spinal Tap - "Yeah, but these tubes go up to 11" :D

    we could always make 10 the benchmark for burnt tubes, and have that as the most burnt.

    "yea but these go up to 11"


    that is burnt chris!

    half reasonable if the color White in movies isn't important to you. So much for Snow or Hockey ice.:suicide:

    I`m also working on colour liquid filled lenses for the seleco range, hoping this will give HD quality. I will post pictures soon.

    Just remember, you'll need a lot of liquid to fill up the space in those big black lenses. Try diluting washingup liquid for the green tint. I hear that works well. :D

    I think this guy lives near you. He's a bit of a DIY'er too. Said his next project was a water cooled projector after he finished refitting the bathroom. I'll dig out his number for you if you like :smashin:
