    As mentioned in my post below, Kodak discontinued the manufacture of their
    projectors and Carousel slide trays.

    Given Kodak's precarious financial condition, I can understand discontinuing
    the projectors but the slide trays? There are millions of projectors out
    there and they are likely killing a profitable market with this apparently
    stupid move.

    My question, does anyone know if an "after market" slide tray exists?

    If not, wanna go into business with me? :)

    I think there *were* a few companies that used to make them, but the
    only reference I could find on the web was to a 'Yankee' brand. KMart
    used to have 'Focal' brand equipment that included carousel-compatible
    trays, I think, but that was a loooong time ago that I saw them...
    Anyway, try B&H Photo - I'm sure there will be plenty still available.

    (I always hated Carousel projectors, I must admit, but that happened
    after I bought a Leitz Colorplan lense, and suddenly realised how
    mediocre the Kodak lenses were (or at least the ones on the Carousel
    projectors at my workplace, maybe they were downmarket models..). My
    choice of a Rollei projector with universal trays has at last been
    completely vindicated!)

    They may have made a mistake, but they surely know more about the market than you or I.

    No. But I have quite a few I will sell. Don't need to keep
    all I have. W W

    ***************************************************************
    I haven't used the slide trays since I bought my projector 20 years ago. I
    use the stack loader and have the slides in two metal boxes. ( The best ones
    I'm building a stock collection and don't project them.) The slide trays
    cost about $10 (I may be wrong as I haven't bought any) but the stack loader
    new is about $70. While the trays can go forward and back, the stack loader
    can only go forward and only holds about 40 slides. However the cost for
    someone that has a couple thousand slides will break you if you go to trays.
    Plus they take up half of your closet. Ric in Wisconsin.
