    I might be thinking of going and was wondering if there could be enlargers for 4x5 there? Someone I know is looking for one. And if other OH/PA/MI apuggers go, we could meet up maybe?

    I might make it.

    This show at this venue has been a bit short on enlargers for a couple of years now. They don't sell for much and are a pain to transport, load, and unload. Last time I saw a dealer with several, he suggested that he'd be throwing them in the dumpster after the show if they didn't sell.

    I did see a Focomat V35 with both color and B&W modules and the stock Focotar for it at this show about 2 years ago. $400 was the asking price, but I didn't have the money. (New price with both modules and lenses would be near $3,000.)

    There have been a number of 4x5 enlargers in the Cleveland area craigslist over the last year or two. You might keep an eye out there as well.
