Paillard Bolex introduced the newly designed Model G projector in 1936. It was available in “monofilm” or “multifilm” models; the latter included a parts kit of reel spindles, sprockets, gate and guide-rollers that could be used without tools to adapt the projector to the various film guages.

The film transport mechanism featured helical gears and sprockets, rather than the more common belt driven system on most projectors.
