    The seller is a good guy. He sold some of his darkroom earlier and I bought some film from him. It won't go for cheap though, he's firm on his pricing, and when I asked him last time about breaking up his last "it all goes together" posting he wouldn't.
    So if you're looking for a turnkey setup, this would be a good choice. The sink alone is a gem!

    WOWzers. Amazing stuff ... if I wasn't half a country away I would consider it - and I already own half the stuff he's selling!

    That would be quite a nice setup! I'm close enough to pick it up, but my bank account says its' outta my league!

    I too can attest the seller is a very nice guy. He also has a post on local CL.
    Last time we spoke he had a seitex scanner for sale as well for short money - a great investment for those LF shooters (8X10 and up), as you can scan (dry or wet) flatbed up to 11X14 or maybe more, in a single pass in quality that is no longer available even from the nicer current epson scanners... (this was a mega bucks machine at the time 20-40K $)....

    It's under processing equipment in the darkroom photo section of ebay.

    It even includes the door. It doesn't get much more complete than that. :tongue:

    Sad thing is, if you're patient and keep an eye on Craiglist, you can probably pick all that up for less than a third of what he's asking.

    or for free.
    However, free gear never comes with all the bits and niceties pro lab gear that is actually used will come with, nice lenses, carriers etc.....

    Take a look at this one. Glad it isn't closer and that my darkroom is full. Bill Barber

    Oh wow, I'm so gutted I don't live in the States. These enlargers are wonderful. Imagine an 8X10!
