Greetings all; just wondering if there are many, if any, Canadians on the forum? I just signed up and I'm located in Ottawa, Ontario. Hope to find some other "locals" interested in buying/selling/trading.....see you on the forum!

Winbert lived in Canada, but I think he's imported from the east. [Wink]

A case of East meets West & West meets Winbert.

Well I am glad to see a few "locals" on the forum! As I said in my intorduction in another thread I'm new to this world but when I take an interest in something I become a little obsessed lol. Right now I'm working to get the projectors I have up and running and start picking up film to view.

Terry: do know any Canadian sorces for projector parts/belts/lamps?

Hi Adam
Actual Canadian retailers will be a tough go.
There is a film supply store outside Toronto that does online sales.
Numbers Film Supply

I've purchased from them before although they don't have a whole lot of 8mm.

Most of my local luck has come from Goodwill type thrift shops or KIJIJI ( found my Eumig S938 there )

I've even got my own store up but it's hard to have get enough stock on there as it goes fast.

For interest here it is Super 8 Surplus

I do scan any manuals I come across and put them up as free downloads. I see you recently found a Berkey Keystone, that manual is there if you need it.

Put wants on the forum, its a great bunch and someone may have what your looking for.

I have family in Toronto and Vancouver. My very first holiday film was shot in 1974 in Vancouver, great city, a great country and uber friendly people. Glad to see Canucks here, just wish your immigration procedures were not so difficult, I'd be over like a shot.

Hey Adam,

For "bulbs" I've been thrilled with the inventory and customer service of:

...located in Langley, BC (not too far out of Vancouver).

I'm looking for a Canadian supplier of splice tapes, etc. Let me know if you find a Canadian supplier ..,
