Do you still have this machine for sale? It's no question that I hate GAF machines but for that price I can't resist.

That GAF was made by Chinon...I think it's close to a Chinon 6100.

Eric Shoolcraft. . We are in the country and wanting to move to the nearest town because of health reasons. As we have been cleaning out closets I came upon the projector and about 50 small film. I've had it since new and am in the process of transferring my 8mm film to dvd. I'm a little slow at it as my eyes and fingers aren't' what they used to be when I purchased the projector. I'm in Canada and not sure what shipping would be but I'm sure we could work something out. I would like 125.00 and will help with shipping. If you want some pictures let me know. Thanks for reading.

PS: I would be keeping the film

Al, Welcome to the forum.

What kind of projector do you have?

Hi Dan,

The 3 year link nolonger works - but obvious.

I have a GAF 3000 S (the older version without the variable speed regulator knob). How can I lay my hands on a free copy of the user manual? Appreciate your help.

Thanks.

Ramnish, welcome to the forum. I could not find a link to a free manual, but I did find a high quality 60 page reproduction of the service manual on Ebay:

Thank you Dan for your welcome.

Dan, thank you so much for your time & efforts. However I was keen to learn & understand the recording features of the machine which I fear a Service Manual might not address. Nevertheless I will checkout the link.

Thank you (once again! :smile: ).
