Hello, I'm helping clean an area out and we found a Graflex Galaxy 10 16 MM sound projector. I was wondering if anyone might have more information on it because they only thing I've been able to find on the internet is the Manual *******.

I don't mean this to sound as callous as it does, but what information are you looking for?

I doubt I could find production records, I might find a manual or brochure that will give you a hint when they were made, I'm guessing late 50s through mid 60s. I know their Galaxy 16 was in production through the 70s but I know know if it was the successor to the 10 or just higher up on the feature ladder.

Beyond that there's the obvious: It's a 16mm projector whose target audience was the massively expanding public schools in the 1960s. Without projectors there would be no "easter bunny productions*" no films about "I am Joe's liver" or Jam Handy films on how to tear apart the brakes on your Dad's Fairlane. (still got the marks from that one)

*'Easter Bunny Productions' was what the show 'Mystery Science Theater 3000' called Encyclopedia Britannica's educational films. Their logo was a strip of film wrapped in a script EB.

Is it worth anything or is it just trash? It looks in pretty good condition

do a post auction search for "16mm sound projector" on ebay and see what you can find. That's probably the best place for a general value.

I found auctions for the Galaxy 16, but not the Galaxy 10 - not sure how much difference there is
