My Weekly Score: Mansfield Model 500 8mm Projector

We’ve come across a few vintage movie projectors in the last year or so and I always enjoy finding them. Usually they look super retro and cool, and I just like the idea that they’ve held all those old films.

This latest one was pretty neat as well. It was a Mansfield model 500 8mm film projector. It was made of cast aluminum, so it was pretty hefty!

The projector still worked and only had a few minor physical blemishes. The light was burnt out, but I just took a picture of it so buyers would know what they had to replace. It all worked out in the end!

I can’t remember how much we paid for this, but I know it wasn’t a lot (maybe $5?). In the end we sold it for $65.00 to someone in Australia, which means that we didn’t have to pay for the shipping either. Whoo hoo!

Have you ever come across one of these?
