Discount Moviola, Part 1 - Big Time Summer Fun Project

So, I drove up to Austin today to pick up a 16mm Moviola that I found on the Austin Craig's List. I've been looking for a Steenbeck, or Moviola, for a long time. I actually found a Steenbeck in Dallas, on eBay, but someone beat me to the punch on it, so I thought I'd pick up this Moviola. Needless to say, even though I got it for cheap, it needs a little work. Mainly some serious elbow grease to get it cleaned up, but it may need some minor mechanical and electrical work. Looks like I now have a summer project.
