Surely they are trying to project "standard 8 film", perfs look too big to be super 8, that's why the slurred picture.

Its probably just the same one that has all the paint falling off it Paul. it was at £102 last time I looked, but if this really is Super 8mm film running through it, it's worth half that amount!

What a bollocking mess!! [Big Grin] [Big Grin]

Very confusing listing, and it is the same seller. A spares only machine I think.

This is a joke, right? Clearly running regular 8 film on a super 8 projector. Oliver and Hardy??? About the asking price...what is that in U.S. Dollars?

It'd probably need the same amount again spending on it to put it right. [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Big Grin]

I think his finger must have slipped from the pence to the pound symbol!! I did not realise they made that model in a black paint flake off...with a scratch finish.

Hmmm, as Andrew implies the seller has a picture of the same machine in 2 different "auctions" - one at £9,999.00 buy it now and the other a real auction currently at £102. He also has a Eumig 938 at a low price £49.99.
Well the name IS wetnwyndy!!!!!

There seems to be a few cranks on ebay just lately. People should really get out a bit more and meet other people it works wonders.

Well the seller has a 100% positive feedback rating Phil, so to that end, for the auction I'd say yes.
Just don't purchase the BIN option at 10k! [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Wink]

Just bear in mind, judging what we have seen now, this might be in very poor shape other than the cosmetics. I certainly wouldn't be prepared to go much beyond where it is for a duo play model with a fixed shutter.

If it were a Stereo model I'd pay much much more for It, even in this state.
