Updated April 7,
I have been working with
and restoring movie projectors for 50 years. All projectors are Fully Refurbished;
thoroughly inspected, adjusted, lubricated, parts replaced and repaired as necessary to
restore to factory new running condition. Condition mentioned in the description is
cosmetic condition. All are guaranteed clean and in perfect new running condition with a
good bulb and one take-up reel. All are 400' reel capacity unless noted. Excellent for
showing your films or to transfer them to video (using your video camera to capture the
projected image). Every projector will come with an 8mm film, one 400' take-up reel, good
bulb and instruction book. A number in ( ) brackets indicates if I have more than one of
Most of the projectors here are
excellent to use for transferring film to video, but none have the capability of
transferring the image to video through a line output. You must use a video camera to take
a picture of the projected image if you plan to use the projector for video transfer.
I do not take in repair jobs. I just
service the projectors I refurbish and sell myself.
PLEASE VIEW WARRANTY AND RETURN
IMPORTANT NOTE - RETURN POLICY:
All projectors are guaranteed to be as described and running perfectly for a full 60 days
after delivery date, or I will repair it or replace it for another comparable model. If I
can't repair it and don't have a satisfactory replacement, I will give a refund.
Please be sure about the type projector you need and what you order.
If, after you first receive a projector, you want to return it for a refund because you
bought the wrong format, thought it did something I indicated in the description or on the
page heading that it does not do, or you just decided you don't want it after all, I will
issue the refund less the initial shipping, Paypal fees if that applies, plus a
re-stocking fee of 25% of the selling price of the projector.

8MM SOUND MOVIE PROJECTORS
MARK-S ZOOM 8MM MAGNETIC SOUND PROJECTOR
Brightest Image Of Any 8mm Projector!
From 1968, this is the best performing regular 8mm sound projector
made. In many ways I consider this model superior to the later Eumig super and dual-8
models. Beautiful condition and meticulously refurbished (totally rebuilt) to run
and last like new, including new motor mount bushing supports; and with brand new rubber
surfacing on the two drive discs if it was needed. Excellent loud sound from
the 3 tube amplifier. Has automatic threading through the film gate; manual threading
through the sound head to the take-up reel. Shows sound or silent film much better and
safer than the dual-8 models. Has pilot lights that come on when the projection bulb is
off for easy threading in the dark. Runs in forward and reverse. Has a variable speed
control for speeds from 15 to 25 frames per second. This makes it excellent for electronic
image transfer to the computer or DVD, without flicker at 20 fps, through a video camera.
The brightest picture avaliable in any 8mm projector using the inexpensive FCR 12 volt 100
watt bulb and f1.3 zoom lens. Almost all steel and metal construction. Operates at 110 to
