We had a Bell & Howel Camera & Projector. The camera had 3 lenses that you could rotate into position. I was thrilled when my dad taught me how to run the projector at the age of 10. Even taught me how to splice the films when it broke.

 The projector in the photo was made by DeJur.  My mom still has it.

My grandfather owned a projector like this, but I don't remember the brand.  He took a lot of movies (that's how we phrased it - took movies) of my cousins and siblings.  My cousins lived halfway across the country.  At least once a year he would visit them, take movies, and then show them to us when he came to visit us.  Then he would do the same in reverse.  One cousin ended up with the movies and had some of them transferred to DVD, of which I now have a copy.  I've shown them to my kids and it's probably about time I can show them to my grandkids.

The heat from the projector bulbs was murderous

Yup, I had a complete Keystone movie outfit when I was in high school. Paid for it with lawn-mowing money. It came with an auto-thread projector, spring-powered 8mm movie camera, screen and floodlight bar. It got a lot of use. I saved my reels of movies and had them converted to VHS tape, long after the equipment was gone. The movies look so crude today, but it was loads of fun at the time.

I believe the projector my family had since the early 50s was a Keystone.

This projector looks like the DeJur model 750 that my parents owned (and still have to this day). They had a DeJur movie camera as well, and made frequent use of its single-frame-exposure mode to create animated titles for our home movies.
