    FYI, Jensen US seems to be selling off some LF enlargers. The small one is 5x7 and the big one purports to take 12x16 negs...

    Those are some big prices. I have a complete De Vere 810H enlarger that I'd sell for less than the dichroic head's price!

    Yeah. I wouldn't describe any of them as "cheap". Just "big".

    Geezz i'm looking for a 35mm negative carrier for a small enlarger. And I just emailed Aristo about a replacement tube for what looks like their first 5x7 head. No heater and a between the fingers twist off on switch and a half lit bulb, W45 of course.

    Why didn't I see the $10,000 enlarger coming it would have saved me soooo much time. I wonder if that $400.00 negative carrier is still available?

    Jesus christ, I didn't even scroll down to see that $15,000 beast. I know it must have cost a boatload new, but are they really expecting someone to buy it?

    It is always easier to reduce the price after a high one has failed to draw customers than it is to raise the price once a lower one has been stated.

    I had the same questions when I first saw Jensen offering these for sale on Ebay. I think that he may be using Ebay as a source of his advertising.

    He makes and/or rebuilds first class equipment.

    But that includes installation :rolleyes: . Did you see the L184 includes a plane ticket to come and see the enlarger before delivery. I guess if money is of no object.
