Bell & Howell Cube Slide Projector Gear, New Item condition: New Quantity: More than 10 available Price: US $15.00 Approximately C $15.54 Buy It NowBuy It Now
This is the gear that goes bad on Bell and Howell cube type slide projectors. If you have one of these projectors you can pretty much expect the gear in your machine to go bad. The original gears were made out of an inferior material that was too soft. New old stock gears would be made of the same material and although they have never been used they most likely will fail right away since they are made of the same inferior materal. They were made soft to reduce the mechanical noise when the gear runs. This was told to me by the person who designed them at Bell & Howell. These new replacement gears are made out of Delrin, an excellent material for gears. Delrin is sometimes used to make gears that are normally made of metal. Don’t miss your opportunity to finally fix that old projector or get a spare gear for your working machine while they are available.
Detailed installation instructions will be included with every gear.

Sorry, I don't have a solution for you, but am in the same boat, with a model AF70 and another earlier model, both off eBay, with the same problem as yours. Trying to get a replacement for my father because he enjoys looking at the family slides (he's 74 ). I'll keep in touch if I find a solution and hope you do the same!

Can I buy a new Bell & Howell Slide Cube Projector?


No! They are no longer made due to the computer generation and slide presentations are usually made with laptops now. You should be able to find one good used one on eBay if interested find your model # of projector and look it up on ebay. They are usually in good condition but make sure lamp works on the one you are buying as these are expensive to replace. Rich

How to replace a worm gear on a Bell & Howell model 2585 16mm film projector.


Replacing the worm gear on a Bell & Howell 16mm film projector is a very long and involved process requiring a complete teardown. It is similar to replacing a blown head gasket in an automobile engine. The worm gear is the heart of the mechanism and takes a lot of time consuming labor just to get to it. In the process you lose a bunch of critical adjustments which require resetting with special Bell & Howell tools/jigs/gauges. Many of these projectors are at least 30 to 40 years old and will also require re-lubrication.
The gear itself costs around $30-ish and takes 3 to 8 hours of labor to replace. Richard Patchett in Michigan and International Cinema Equipment in Miami, Florida does the worm gear replacement.

We need a skematic for a 1962 Bell and Howell 8mm projector - Model #383A. Any chance it exists somewhere?


I have the same model, came out late 1963 by the way, been looking for the service manual and parts myself on ebay, but no luck. The company that took over the projector parts for bell & howell was KMR Electronics 714-979-0400 SANTA ANA, CA. There website www.kmr.com seems to have disappeared though.

I have a Bell & Howell slide cube projector that has been packed away for many years. The rotating disk will not advance the slides for viewing. The disk seems stuck. I have been unable to find anyone...


I occassionaly experience the same problem. I don't know why it occurs, however; here's what I do to get the projector moving again: 1) Face the right side of the projector wherein the lens will be pointing to your right. on the middle top of the projector edge closest to you you will see a top access tab. 2) Move and hold the tab to the left and lift open the top of the projector. 3) On the edge of the rotating tray at about the 5:00 position (my guess as I'm not at the projector now) you will slot in the circular plate aligned with another slot on the fixed casing. Inside this sloted area there is a metal pieve that spans the slot across the two surfaces. 3) Take a screw driver and giggle this metal peice, pressing dow and releasing, and / or in and out, while pressing the slide advance advance forward and back. I found no ryhme or reason to this or that it readilly works after so many jiggles, however; it alsways does usually after anywherefrom a few seconds to a minute or two. This isn't a fix but a temporary workaround. I'm in the process of sulling my thousands of slide to be digitized, after which I will no longer need this wonderful legacy machine. Hope this helps.
