And now an answer from the low-brow "Peanuts Gallery"...

depending on whether you'll really be willing to drag it out, get out the 
screen, can even convince any of the family to sit and look at <goran> family 
slides <g>...

you could......
<avoiding all Kodak Carousels as I had two previously and think they are way 
overpriced for the quality and ditto on those trays...)

you can go on eBay and get a Bell and Howell AF70 (or silmilar model) with 
fixed 90mm lens (on eBay all the time..they're like Fords..lots of 'em sold) 
for anywhere from $25 to $50, oftentimes sold with a screen and slide cubes 
to boot! The slide cubes are still currently manufactured by several outside 
sources and used ones sell cheaply online as well. If it breaks, chuck it and 
get another...(I got a spare for $16 last month..just in case...)

as we head into the days of loading our slides and pics on cd-roms for future 
viewing (and later smaller digital formats) these albatrosses are probably 
gonna sit more and more.(Kinda like when we find a B&H 8mm Movie Projectors 
we find in our parent's closets) I figure this way the investment won't hurt 
your feelings every time you look at it in the closet...

I may be the Princess of Picky with my cameras, but with a slide projector, I 
can settle for less.

Hey...I warned you it was bargain-basement, low-brow.....
