Microfilm readers - on the cheap

A friend works for a not-for-profit archive, that needs to replace microfilm reader printers and microfilm scanners, for not much money/free.

They need to get the new machines as a donation or are hoping to buy an affordable used one off of a local company that no longer needs it. I know the person is in the process of reaching out to Universities and Libraries and other archives, was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of businesses in the Southern Ontario area that might be good to contact?
This is a statement from my friend about the archive: "We are a non-profit organization that advocates more liberal access to archival collections, and a recognition that freedom of information laws should be exactly that. We have an extensive and growing microfilm collection and in order to keep these documents available to the public we are in need of microfilm reader printers and microfilm scanners."
If you need more details on what the archive is/does etc. please feel free to memail me.
