Kevin,

Good find! I'm scared to ask what else they found in that house.

Sherlock Clark here!
I've looked through the seller's past and present auctions but cannot find any other clues to ID which Hammer film this may have been used in, it would be nice if a Hammer films expert on the forum could give the seller a hand and not leave them out on a limb [Big Grin]

Multi-Gauge Projector.... [Confused]

We found in the video world there are a lot of multi-system players, but any projector can play multi-gauge 8mm and 16mm?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=63821&item=6408800543&rd=1

The seller wrote:

The box says that it will play in 8mm OR 16mm projectors. Excellent condition.

[Eek!] [Confused]

Luckly he blames to the box...so the box SAYS

At this rate, the seller may not keep his 100% feedback rating for very long. [Roll Eyes]

Winbert, FYI, The Heurtier TriFilm can project 8, 9.5 and 16 mm. A very cleverly designed machine.

Jan,

What an excellent story! Of course, in telling this tale, the seller makes no mention of the model #, or if the damn(ed) thing works or not!
Just one question: If you win it and your life turns out fine, can you get a refund?

Doug

How much do you wanna bet that the seller would be more than willing to accommodate such refund upon realizing the camera can bring good luck, too [Wink]

What a load of wafflybollox! Luckily the auction doesn't end until Sunday so I can use most of Saturday to read the description in full - all the surplus text hides the excellent screen shots below the wording that many bidders won't bother to scroll down to see. Definitely a case of 'more is less' [Roll Eyes]

Kevin, I just love that word; 'wafflybollox' never heard it before but I'm going to try and use it in conversation tomorrow.

My favourite until now has been 'guggapooey' but 'wafflybollox' might just have pipped it at the post [Big Grin] .

Hello Mike
I first heard the term when working at a local Learning Centre - thankfully it didn't turn out to be an incurable ailment of the male private parts as I had at first suspected! The Learning Centre's ICT Tech once designed a chat based website devoted to the art of Wafflybollox - defined as 'To lose yourself in talking absolute rubbish; To speak about nothing but mention everything'. It certainly deserves more exposure as a great word to sum up so many worthless, padded, over-blown documents, conversations and presentations we are subjected to these days [Smile]

Jan,

The auction title reads "VERY RARE 8MM FILM OF THE UNDEAD IN GREAT CONDITION". Hence my little joke.

7531556558 Ebay Item st1200D ---> D for DUH <---

No focus knob, no power cord, no main operating knob; probably dropped, linkage corrupt, seller having a mind of a 6 pack.

This is probably at the most a good parts machine. Oh yes, note that it runs super 8 tapes for DVD transfer.
