    Hi Guys,

    I have recently got into Film photography (black and white) and im looking for an enlarger to put in my Dark Room, i shoot 35mm and MF (6x4.5cm). i've had a brief look on gumtree, ebay, and vanbar, but couldn't find much to my liking. any ideas on where to get a reasonably cheap one?

    Cheers
    Hugo

    If you're lucky some one might donate one to you. Just not sure where you'd best plead your case.

    Hugo,

    I might have a spare Durst medium format enlarger floating around - I'll have a look and see if I still do and report back...

    Marc!

    Rats - I must have already given away the Durst one. I do have a little 35mm one if useful, and some random bits of darkroom gear, like a Durst RC paper dryer...

    Has anyone in Melbourne noticed the very clean-looking Durst Laborator 1000 5x4" Enlarger on ebay currently? $0.99 at the moment, pickup (might need to take a pal along, and a van) from Belgrave!

    Marc!

    I did - rather envious I'm not in AU right now, as I'm itching to get my hands on a 5x4 enlarger.

    Ooh, I could do with a 4x5" enlarger. Too bad it's a 2-day round trip to pick it up.
    Speaking of which, The Analogue Lab has an enlarger or two to give away (I think 6x7 B+W condenser) if you're driving up this way any time soon...

    I have an LPL 7700 Variable Contrast enlarger with a few bits and pieces. It is up for grabs. Covers to 6x7 of course. The only catch is that I can't find the transformer! Eastern suburbs Melbourne. Pick up only.

    I have an enlarger sitting in my darkroom that is up for grabs, it's an old Meopta with neg carriers up to 6x9 (i think) it has a 50mm lens as the original owner only used 35mm. There is a lot of stuff to make up a darkroom with as well. Essentially someone who has retired from most aspects of life; he's quite elderly.

    The deal was we were going to have a table at the October flea market, but maybe not.

    The catch is, I'm currently in Europe until early July, however the good news is, the prices will be quite low, probably with bits and pieces thrown in.

    Mick.

    I have an enlarger that I'm looking to sell too. It's a functioning Durst AC 800. Has negative carriers from 110 to 6x7. Also has (among other things): a base board, remote control, wall racks so it can be mounted. The instruction book is included too.

    I'm in Melbourne and would much rather it be picked up. It's just too big and cumbersome to fit in the mailbox.

    Message me if you're interested.
