    I would normally jump at the chance to own something like this but now realize I don't have a use for it, or need it, or probably would ever use it. However, it is close enough to where I live to be a temptation. I am thankful that it is not free.

    It's a couple of miles from me. I'm hoping someone else snags it so I don't ;-)

    Ha - I looked there but didn't look far enough back in time! At least the price is coming down and more goodies are being added by the time of the craigslist ad...

    yes, everybody has to have an 8x10 enlarger once in their life....to learn why they no longer want it around....

    voice of experience here...they are big and seldom used...contact prints is what you want...you'll see...just buy one of them things--it'll convince you edward weston was wise.

    My Chicago contact says he contacted the seller. Ad has been pulled and nothing is for sale at this time.

    Maybe because this thread is 6 months old? :smile:
