    Basically someone is selling an enlarger on ebay but hasnt replied to any questions i sent about what it actually is.. its listed as an LPL enlarger and it striked a resemblence to a C7700 but i wouldnt swear on it.

    I think you are right, Samuel. This is the LPL C7700 with the necessary transformer.

    Looks like the LPL C7700 enlarger with a universal neg carrier. The latter on it's own is worth at least £40.

    A solid and capable enlarger, and well worth a tenner for the easel alone.


    P.S. If you need a manual, I'll see if I can dig a scan out for you.

    Just thought i would drop by and say that i won it and picked it up today.... it is infact the LPL c7700 Pro :smile:

    with an easel and universial neg holder for £10.50 and the price of 10 miles of diesel :smile:

    Thanks for your help
