Siemens 800 Regular 8mm Projector

Post by sciolist » Wed Apr 11, 2018 8:42 pm

Can anyone tell me what bulbs are suitable for use in a Siemens 800 regular 8mm projector? The 220V 50Hz machine - Typen-Nr: Sf. P 8.1 - seems to accept lamps of 250W, 375W, and 500W, but I can't find the bulb designations. This isn't the version that'll operate on 110V 60Hz.

Thanks. I found the bulb for $15.99 + $5.45 shipping at Amazon. The price at Van Eck for the same item was the equivalent of $34.60 + $29.21 shipping.

Alternatively you could use a led with a led driver. About $5 from china.
