Hi Jim,

Slide projectors are close to worthless to most people.
A high quality Leica projector of 10 to 20 years old will be a superb 
projector and will cost not more then a few hundred dollars. If bought 
private probably even less.
Just make sure you have one with a good lens. A colorplan is the one to 
look for. A good screen is also very important.
I got a 500 wat pradovit schoolprojector for nothing from a friend. I 
bought a prado66 for 30 Euro's the other day.
