If you're willing to settle for slides from 16 mm. (although you can
probably use them for print as well), I use a Fujica Macrocinecopy X
lens mount.  It has clips and apertures for both 8 mm and 16 mm film
and setup can be very simple.  I've had this for some time, so I don't
know if Fujica still makes it, but it may be available through various
photo supply sources.
