Have been using this machine occasionally for the last year or so. Takes up to an 800ft reel.
Notable issues: There's some crackle/background static in the audio output, loudest when the projector is turned on cold, tends to settle down once you give the run knob a turn. (I'm not sure if it's in the amp section or the speaker or what.) I believe that also I noticed once or twice needing to switch run knob back and forth for it to start running. None of the above stopped me from using it, so I haven't spent time or technical effort diagnosing what was up. It would thus benefit from a tune-up or a clean out if you have the knowledge and willingness to do so. I recently replaced the lamp socket. It's missing a small red plastic cover piece that goes over the frame counter output. Comes with AC cord and a spare fresh Osram lamp.
A very nice and rightly prized machine but given condition issues asking $400 inclusive of shipping. (Within the US that is. Would consider sending elsewhere but would have to work out actual cost shipping, and it would not be inexpensive.)

It sounds like this machine needs some work! I had a customer who had problems simmer to this and the IC burnt out! Which you can't get no more! The machine will be useless! The T600 is better it did not have the micro IC!
