I've owned a more modern one for years: my aunt recently sent me this one, which had belonged to my uncle.

More pictures may have to follow, with more attention paid to technicalities (and ISO - 25? Must have words with that mobile...)

My dad had one for 16 mm film. It may still be in a cupboard someqhere.
I never used one myself but James's comment has reminded me of editing tape in my student radio days which I became quite adept at.

I do remember splicing the old 8mm and even magnetic audio/video tapes.
Memory Monday perhaps.
