Hi everyone,

The following items are available for free to the first person who can come pick them up in person:

1. Elmo ST-1200 Magnetic sound with F1.3 lens, last used about a year ago,
2. B&W feature 'Scarface' on Super 8, missing the first reel,
3. A few shorts on Super 8,
4. Lots of reels and boxes for reels of various sizes,
5. A 16mm Eiki NT projector which works but needs some love.

Interested individuals can send me a PM or an email.

Thanks,
Akshay Nanjangud

Guys, let's not stretch this 'generous' thingy! The stuff here isn't worth a fortune by any means.

Nevertheless, the ST 1200 alone typically raises around £100 in the UK for any model that is working, so as a complete "give away" I believe it is a very kind and generous gesture Akshay. [Smile]

I doubt the same offer would be repeated here too often.

Hey Akshay I am interested in the free stuff that you are giving away. I worked on your GS-1200 over a year ago, and I would like to know if you can ship the stuff to me and I will pay for the shipping ? so please send me an email as soon as you can.

Thank You
Leon Norris

Unless there have been previous talks with you guys, I think the key words are:

I have to say, I find it Alien here that someone is very generously offering their goods free to a collector willing to collect, and yet no one has asked for the items so far showing any modicum of decorum or even the word please.

No wonder no replies are flooding back on this one.

Must be me??? [Confused] [Confused]

Folks,
I may be wrong, but I think some may have missed the progress on this 'stuff' thread(s).

Here is what I remember:
1. The poster posted regarding the 'stuff'.
2. Nobody claimed it after several additional posts.
3. He then said if noone claimed it it would be thrown out. Don't remember where i read this, but either this thread was edited or it is in another similar thread....
4. Then this thread title was updated shortly after to say "(Taken Care Of!)
So I am unsure why people are still posting asking for the stuff.....My interpretation is that it is in the garbage, which i feel is dreadful btw! I hope I am wrong here!
This is why I believe he said "My thanks to everyone for their efforts to paint me as a saint. Love you all! Ha-ha!", because people keep giving him accolades for giving this 'free stuff' away to some of us who regard it as GOLD, but clearly he does not feel the same and thus the comment...

Like I say, maybe i've dreamed all this.... [Smile]
Cheers,
Matt

Thanks for clearing that up Matt! Went totally over my head the garbage bit!

What a shame! [Frown] Why??? [Mad]

Hoping you are wrong Matt, but somehow, I doubt it!

I hope I am wrong as well!!
I guess some people really do not value this 'stuff' or because it isn't ,say, a GS1200 or something which could fetch more coin, it is worthless to some...
Cheers,
Matt
