    This is NOT my listing but someone should grab this lot. I'm thinking of picking it up myself but if anyone is interested please PM me and maybe we can slit it up. Ebay lot #290161553254
    This is a rather large and awesome amount of stuff for basically nothing....
    Best, Peter

    Several problems....

    First being the items were/are in storage in a high humidity area. Rust?

    Second, the seller has no idea what he has. My guess is he owns the storage facility and the (former) owner of this stuff never paid his bill.

    Third, the stuff looks rough. Check the bellows.

    I would not buy this mess without seeing it in person.

    Doesn't Wayne Crider live down in this area?

    Stuff

    David-I've wasted $200+ on what appears to be much worse than this lot. I regularly keep my equipment in the trunk of my car down south with no problems...like I posted have no involvement with the sale just thought that someone here might be interested....
    Best, Peter

    The four blade easel could be worth the price of the whole lot if it's not rusty and would clean up well. I think shipping the entire array might double the price though, so it would be a terrific find for someone who could pick it up.

    Even with the shipping cost, it would be a steal, if those enlargers were functional. But I've got no place to put them, and I'm not local to go pick that stuff up.
