The bulb blew in my ancient projector. I'm not sure when it was made, but it's called a Vu-Lyte. So you know it was made when spelling things like that was in fashion. It weighs about a ton and I have to drag it back and forth to get the right magnification. And take a look at the bulb. Wow, this thing is old.
I project my small sketches onto the larger canvas, where I trace and draw the image at the larger size. This piece of equipment is essential for me.
I had two choices. Find a new bulb or buy a new projector. Surprisingly, a company in Kansas still sell these bulbs, so I got one for $30. I'm waiting for it now. When it blows, I'll spend the $200 for a new projector.
