I have been working with
and restoring movie projectors for more than 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.

709 DUAL-8MM SOUND PROJECTOR
Will Run 8mm andSuper-8
Sound and Silent Films
- Eumig is the only manufacturer to make a dual-8 sound
projector. This is the first and best dual-8 model they made with
partial manual threading and high quality tube amplifier. It will
show both 8mm and super-8 sound and silent films. Handles both film
formats well because of the separate sprockets and film gates
supplied, which are stored neatly inside the protective cover. You
simply switch the parts out when changing film formats. It has
automatic threading through the film gate, then you manually thread
the film through the sound heads to the take-up reel. This makes it
very easy to unthread in the middle of a reel. Runs in forward or
reverse. Has variable speed settings from 15 to 24 frames per
second, 600' reel capacity and a bright image with the f1.4 15 to
25mm zoom lens and inexpensive, 50 hour life, FCR 12 volt 100 watt
