8 & 16mm film splicer

Postby jtbarclay » Mon Mar 30, 2009 7:32 pm

I have this thing sitting in my car right now, would anybody be interested in saving it from a landfill?

It's made by Mansfield, it says it has a 6 watt bulb, I haven't plugged it in to see if the bulb still works, doubt it. There's even a little bottle of kodak film cement...

I might be interested -- I've got a 16mm film projector, salvaged from previous employment. I need to find or make a takeup reel, then we can have real movie night!

Hey, making fun of old Mythbusters episodes after gorging on pizza & beer was "real" enough for some of us. :P ;)

(I don't actually have need of a splicer, but I could probably still use it, from back when I was like 11 years old, taking a stop-motion Super-8 animation class at the art museum. It didn't define my future career, but my short did get one laugh out of the room.)

I should have said "reel movie." I have a bunch of special ed films (I worked for a special ed school district back in the day), and one episode of M*A*S*H.
