    Yup, they come in swarms at the start of spring, like the frogs starting their mating trek.

    Good heavens. Does someone down in Atlanta want to pick them up and parse them out to Apuggers? It would be kinda cool to be able to project 4x5" transparencies.

    It is item number 7593363350.
    As you posted, I'd just found that. Hrm... formulating spousal purchase request language at this time.

    Later edit --
    Holey Macrel! That's a pallet-o-projectors! That'd cost my entire darkroom construction budget to ship. Maybe I better just get an overhead projector.

    Does anyone know what this is? Local University surplus sale advertises it as an "overhead film projector" for US$30. Could I concievably get reasonable transparency projection out of this?

    The picture shows a Color Video Projector. It doesn't look like something for film or overhead projection.

    Looks like a video projector to me - read the small white lettering under the lens....maybe it would work if you'd make a video of your slides and then play the video..?

    But I like Davids idea: let's buy the pallet all together and divide the loot. We'd have to draw straws who gets which lens.

    So did anyone buy the 11 Slide Kings for $10.50 plus a heck of a lot of shipping?

    I've got one on the way from another auction and tracked the package and it's listed at 40 lbs!--

    My Slide King arrived in its original long metal case from the Utah department of surplus property (it formerly belonged to the Utah Div. of Aeronautics), which looks like something designed for transporting a rocket propelled grenade launcher.

    It's got a 15-1/2" Beseler lens and a carrier for 3-1/4" x 4" mounts. I happen to have one magic lantern slide in that format--a scene of two farmers with their water buffalo in a rice paddy near Manila around a hundred years ago or so. The slide is very contrasty, intended for projection. I've tried duping it on film and scanning it, and have never gotten a result that I was pleased with, but it looks beautiful projected.

    The 15-1/2" lens is perhaps best suited to a larger space than my apartment. With the slide about 8 feet from the wall, I've got the lens racked out 18 inches (the focusing rails are collapsible), and the image size is about 10-1/2 x 11". Maybe that guy who bought all those machines might be willing to part with a wider lens, or maybe Galli's got one somewhere, though the lens might also require a mounting collar.

    Now to see if I can find slide mounts for this thing. I've seen some pretty large slide mounts from Gepe.

    David, I would be interested to know how you set this thing up. After I saw your post last night, I went out and got one too! And it was pretty cheap at $25 + shipping. Since I have started shooting MF slides now, thought I would take a chance with this machine and see if I can figure out a way to project 6x6 slides.

    On the back there's a metal bracket that folds down to give the projector some clearance for the fan, and on the front there are two knobs, and if you loosen those knobs, two legs spring out (with some force!), so you can level the projector.

    The lens goes in a mounting collar and is held in place with a set screw on the bottom of the collar. The collar is held on the front standard by means of another set screw with a knob.

    To insert the slide carrier, first open the lamp housing with the knob on top. Inside you'll notice that you can adjust the distance between the lamp and the condensors, and it looks like you can also adjust the position of the condensors, but if you've only got one lens, that is probably all set up correctly. The black knob for the slide carrier goes on the right side facing forward (presuming that you are standing behind the projector), and the carrier slides into the slot until it hits a metal stop and is held in place with a metal thumbscrew.

    Close the lid, plug it in, and turn it on, and it should work. Focus by turning the black knob on the right side of the front standard, and if you can't extend the lens far enough to focus, then loosen the knobs on the underside of the collapsible rails, and extend the rails.

    You change slides by sliding the carrier back and forth from one side to the other, each time taking a slide out and putting a new one in.

    There's a black knob on the right side of the lamp housing that controls a metal pointer. You can turn it to raise or lower the pointer, and slide it in and out of the frame, and lecture with authority, indicating what is important and what is trivial. Power Point? Feh...

    I've found 6x6 and 6x7 mounts from Gepe, but haven't figured out what the outside dimensions are. Let me know if you turn anything up!
