Hi. I wanted to see if anyone could give me some advice on a projector I came across in my attic. It is an Eumig Mark 8 projector that belonged to my grandfather, well it still does but I've got the go ahead to sell it for him. I just wanted to know if this is of any value and if it would be worth selling. If so how much do you think it is worth and what are the best places to sell equipment like this. I have tried searching for it on the web but can't find much on it apart from spare manuals. It is in good condition and I believe it still works fine.
Any help on this would be great, thanks.

There's not much of a market for this stuff out there. If you go to eBay and see what 8 projectors are going for, it's not a heck of a lot.

Same thing even with 16mm. I have 3--and the most I paid was $50 (plus shipping).

You're better off keeping it and having some fun with it.

Thanks for your reply Ira.

I'll probably just stick it on ebay then and take what I can get for it.
I wouldn't ever use it so better that someone can get some enjoyment out of it rather than lying in my attic.

I'm not really familiar with projector models, so yours might fetch more--substantially more than $50--but just don't expect a hell of a lot. Also, you have to be sure that the bulb is okay, and that the thing WORKS okay, or it's not worth the headache:

At the very least, unless you can claim that you ran a few reels through it and it works fine, you have to say "Untested," which means no one will bid on it. And if you do claim it works (and I believe you) but the buyer has a problem, oy vey.

It's just going to be pain to deal with via eBay. Try Craigslist first for someone local.
