Hello! I'm a student and research assistant at Thompson Rivers University. I have no idea if anyone uses this message board anymore, so it's very possible no one will ever read this! Nonetheless, I'm hoping someone does and can help me out. I'm working on a project about old industrial films. To screen some the 16 mm films we managed to dig up, my professor got her hands on some old 16mm projectors. They are, however, quite old and are missing parts/accessories. I've been given a shopping list of things to buy, but I'm having some trouble finding places to purchase the items I need.
Right now I'm looking for:
- a film splicer (there seems to be plenty of these on eBay, other online classifieds)
- 16 mm rewinds
- a movie scop viewer
- a loop
I am hoping someone with expertise in this area might know the best places to purchase affordable old film gear. Would you buy equipment off of eBay or other online classifieds? Are there any vendors you trust? Any help you could provide me with this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
