I have a chance to buy 2 working projectors for $200! Came from TV station. 6ft tall and heavy! Problem is, I know nothing about them and the sheer size! Seems like they would be the ultimate 16mm projector though.
Any thoughts are ideas will be helpful...

I had four of them in the past, two old blue ones, and two of the later beige ones. They are excellent telecine machines but do not have a lot of light output for normal projection (plus the five-blade shuttter cuts down light even more). They will take 4000' reels and have optical/magnetic sound reproduction. They have a very complicated circuit so keep that in mind if anything goes wrong. Rock steady picture, great sound with virtual instant start up.
