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 correctly..
