Bell and Howell 16mm Projector Models


This is my first attempt at making a list of B&H 16mm Projector models.  There are probably many omissions, and errors.  Any corrections and additional information is appreciated.  Special thanks to Ken Layton for correcting errors and adding much information.  Amplifier code: T = Transistorized, V = Vacuum Tube (Valve), S = Silent.
