Does anyone have an Elmo 800' take up reel for sale?

If you don't get offered one in your part of the world l can look at sending you one from Australia.

And I could offer you one from the UK John if you felt it was worth the 4500 mile transportation fee.

Surely someone in the U.S. could help you out with one of these John? I have had quite a few features sent to me from the States that came on these spools so I do know they are not in short supply there, not by any means.

No sense in paying the international shipping for items that are common here. I just sold a feature that was on the Elmo reels. I had no other type of 800' reels to switch. I'll just await for someone in the States sooner or later. Thanks for the responses, gentlemen.

I may have one for you that you can have for free just pay the shipping cost. I have been downsizing my Super 8mm collection since switching to 16mm. How soon do you need one?

Hello John,

I have an Elmo 800 reel but I have been back on medical leave and may have to go back this week and unable to ship right away. However, if you want to drive to my New Jersey home this coming Sunday you can have the reel PLUS the Elmo ST-600 for parts that you want. No charge for the items.

If you cannot make it to Toms River, I will be at my New York's apartment (8th Ave and 50th Street) the following weekend and I will be there for the entire months of April and May, taking a short break to go the Spring CineSea.

Let me know here or by email, you can also leave a voice mail and we can take it from there.

Best regards
