After 20 years I am jumping back into Film Collecting.
In the 70s, when I was a kid, I dabbled with Super 8 sound digests and Had a Sankyo 600 (still do, somewhere). By 1980 I was a teen and lost interest. In the 90s, I happened upon 16mm collecting and eventually amassed several features and was the proud owner of an Eiki 4000p Xenon projector. After a serious relationship breakup, I sold off a lot of things, including all of my 16mm stuff. That was 1998.
Just yesterday I obtained an Elmo GS 1200 off Ebay. The seller is the next town over and I am personally picking it up and testing it out. I still have my 400' digests of Star Wars and CEOT3K to test it out with. Those films are probably very red by now, but still, I have them.
But, for the time being, I am back into the Film World.

Thanks guys. I am sure I will have several questions regarding a variety of things...Most obviously, availability of parts, lamps, scope lenses/brackets, etc.
What would be a good splicing method now? I am sure the Kodak Presstapes are long gone.

David, welcome back to filmish folly.

Larry Urbanski still sells Presstapes. Also tape rolls, and a lot of other supplies. Splicing cement is still around too.

Takes a little digging sometimes, but supplies and help of all kinds is still available!
