Updated September 10, 2014

I have been working with and restoring movie projectors for 50 years. All projectors are Fully Refurbishedthoroughly 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 that projector.

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 POLICY

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.

EUMIG MARK-S 709 DUAL-8 SOUND PROJECTOR
Runs Standard 8mm and Super-8 Sound or Silent Films
  • Eumig is the only manufacturer to make a dual-8 sound projector. From 1968, this is the first and best dual-8 model they made with partial manual threading and high quality tube amplifier. Outstanding quality sound is better than any of the later solid state models. It will show both standard 8mm and super-8 sound and silent films.
