    if you are up to having some fun while brainstorming for your new project maybe this can occupy yo. How much does it cost? 2 bucks maybe? -.-

    Not sure if stronger would work better. I think the newer LED bulbs would be a lot cooler. I have all the things needed to make one so I might start this week on one. Lots of ideas are popping in my head to experiment with.

    I also have everything I need to make one of these but since I don't actually use a projector of any kind I don't need to make one, I did however build my own overhead projector back 2012, I also started another thread with building instructions after it was tested, I never actually used since I started printing my images the same size as i wanted to paint them.

    The projector can found here;
    http://airbrushforum.org/threads/home-made-overhead-projector.154/#post-1797

    And the building instructions here;
    http://www.airbrushforum.org/threads/make-your-own-overhead-projector.220/

    If you post any comments on either of these threads you'll have to tag me otherwise I won't know, the profile there is no longer used so I don't get notifications.

    The lady whose photo was used for the demonstration is my X wife:)

    I was at my moms few minutes ago. I was talking about this diy projector with my old man, and he is interested to build it lol
    Was wondering. Is there any way to make skew of the picture withing the projector? I can always skew picture in software and print it, but I know, some projectors have skew option built in.

    You just put @ in front of their user name with no space a bit like this @huskystafford ;)

    I doubt you will be able to get any kind of stretch & skew features into something as basic as this, all those features require either software or complicated lenses and mechanics or both.

    I wish I still had my photo enlarger. I had 2 4x5" enlargers and just gave them away since film vanished away years ago. It got so expensive to buy and use because of digital stuff now. I had a photo lab along with a photo studio and made very good money back in the 80's and 90's with the color lab and black and white set up I used.
