    I wish I had the space for one of these things.

    That's a good price as well, and just up the road from me (when in the UK), but I already have one :smile:

    An APUG member in the US is on his way right now to pick one up :D But you do need a lot of room & head space as theu are tall, abut no bigger than a 5x4 in terms of space required.

    I gave this exact enlarger to a high school program, as I have the 11x14 version and a 8x10 durst.
    This price is good and if you are a die hard large format shooter you will never need another enlarger. They are built like tanks and the focus and ability to raise and lower the head and easel are a dream to work with.
    Basically an outstanding enlarger , nothing today is built like this piece of equipment.

    Get it and make room for it. It is a good enlarger, I got the wall mounted version.
    If I am not mistaken it is still being produced so you can get spare parts.

    Uses a lot of lamps though. Be sure to keep the fans on all the time.
