First, thank you all for advising me on the baking of the 1/4-inch audiotape which had become sticky over the years.
The tapes now play perfectly.
I have many feet of regular, old 8mm film and I'd love to be able to scan certain individual frames of it, but they are so small (about 1/8-inch square).
Does anyone know of a scanner that could handle such a minute picture?
Perhaps there's a film editor that can snap a frame with the push of a button.
