    I saw a listing for a movie projector on Ebay with photos. The machine displayed in the photos was a reel to reel tape recorder.

        I like the „$1,966 34% Off $2,995“ in combination with the „Non operational as sold.“.
        I also like the „Excellent original pristine cosmetics“ in the description in combination with the „CONDITION Good Condition, Original Condition Unaltered, Some Imperfections​“ in the summary.

            Every so often my wife has been at a rummage sale and dropped 20 bucks on a projector like this one. The people behind the tables seemed relieved to see them find a home.

            (Every common room in the house has one on display, so she has now stopped!)

              Goodness Steve, she is definitely a keeper. No chance my other half would buy projectors for the home!

                LOL, mine either! The only projector I'm allowed to have out on display is the Bolex 18-5. She says it's OK because it's cute, LOL.

                  I actually did buy one in October at a Thrift Store for $15. It works, too (kinda slow in forward but reverse is right on the money). It came with the little popup screen for daylight viewing. Kinda looks like a laptop. Here it is projecting a B/W silent movie about deep sea fishing. Click image for larger version

                    I have found that the Kodak Brownies have always been reliable and provided they are kept clean and used sensibly do not damage Film. Those with a variable speed control are quite good for use as digital transfers.😊

                      well I tried it again today and it's not working well in forward at all. It melted a few frames.
