To my recollection the 16mm Singer Graflex 800 to 1000 models have an
inching knob.

It was the era of "Filmo" B&H 16mm projectors that had the knob (Filmo 8mm
too). Schools used the larger sound projectors, home movie folks used the
the ones that took a 400' reel. When the projector was running, this knob
would spin, and not running you could check your threading by turning the
knob to see if your loops were right and if the sprockets engaged
