Have you tried the Dick Blick Catalog?
Artists (and amateurs like me) still use them for projection!

Subject: Opaque Projectors

Opaque projectors - apparently they do still exist. One of our member
librarians wants to purchase one to use for storytimes. Her problem is that
the models she can find have a 10" square stage, which really isn't big
enough for many children's picture books. I'm hoping someone out there has
experience with opaque projectors or has an alternate projection method to
My memories of them involve burned fingers and crispy paper edges.
