Yes, I have looked at my tubes for reference, and they all show slight wear (not noticable when projected). However, my green tube has a large portion of the "green" missing . . which projects a pinkish booger on the screen since there is no green being projected. So, I need a new green tube. I was thinking I could buy a non-working projector, pull out the green tube, and keep the rest for parts. Even a slightly worn blue seems to have some value.
Why not mention ebay ?? and I agree whole-heartedly about the help here vs the help on ebay comment.
I was just sort of kidding trying to make a joke about how you wanted to, in your words, steal it off ebay.
There are people here who will try to outbid you if it's a truly good deal. That's what auction is about. I just thought if people don't know it's on ebay then that's less likely to happen.
I remember a post about a guy here who asked about some deals only to have the deals taken from him. Just trying to look out for ya.
Hope that clears it up.
Edit: Also my wording was strange, must be a lack of coffee. One thing I was trying to say is some people here, for example, Curt Palme, may be able to get you the spare parts you need. Maybe it would cost a little more but it's a lot safer in some ways. That's what I was trying to say with the "helpfull" comment. I'll go get coffee now.
Yeah, I've gotten a price from Curt and its fair and I know he is reliable. I was thinking that for maybe a $100 bucks more, I could have a complete parts machine. Oh well, I'll watch the auction and see what happens.
