TDC Deluxe Stereo Slide Projector
vintage - Reconditioned - fully warranted
Manufactured in Chicago by the Three Dimension Company beginning in the early 1950s, their sales were so successful that the Chicago firm of Bell & Howell, a long established projector manufacturer, purchased the Three Dimension Company to expand their projector line
Bell & Howell continued to produce the stereo projectors under the TDC brand name, but began to produce a Deluxe model with significant internal and external improvements.
The earlier model was re-christened the Standard, Model 116 Projector, while the new model was christened the Deluxe Model 716 Projector.
Features of the TDC Deluxe 716 Projector:

--Power cord internally attached
--Availability of optional upgrade to matched 4" fl lenses over standard matched 5" fl lenses
