How about DIY optical printers? I found some instructions for a super8 one
here. <http://www.city-net.com/%7Efodder/s8mm/optprint.html> There's also a
diagram in Scott MacDonald's Canyon Cinema book republished from *Cinemanews
*. Is that the only page? Any other ideas, diagrams, etc. that people have
had good experiences with?
