There is some fellow selling a16mm projector and charging £50 for what he calls economy delivery.
Paul Foster is advertising his most expensive films on Ebay, this one 'The Student Prince' is £319. Advertised as Mario Lanza. Lanza was sacked from the film, and replaced with Edmund Purdom. Lanza had recorded the songs to the film, and Purdom mimed to them. Not the best of films. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/16mm-film-THE-...=item58ca71da23

Tim, the man gave you the shirt off his back!! Seriously though, I know we have a go at our parcel deliverers, but on some of these
tales folk are recounting, its a wonder stuff gets through undamaged by such poor packing, I had a electronic recording thingy bought
from ebay, just chucked in a box! How it reached me in one piece eludes me, especially after the going through the " I can put more
corners on the box than you" at Parcelforce.
Parcelforce are the worst you could possibly get. The best deal I had on Ebay recently was a man advertising 6 vintage projector bulbs with a starting price of £10. Postage free. The bulbs can vary in price from £10 to ridiculous amounts like £70. Surprisingly I was the only bidder, so got 6 for £10 post free. By the time he has paid postage, Ebay and Paypal their cut there was virtually nothing left.
