    I retired at the end of the year and must downsize my entire life. I have no room for my hobby of 45 years and must sell all of it.

    • Berkey Omega D5 Pro-Lab 4X5 with wall mount and top braces plus the usual lenses, neg carriers (including ANR glass carriers), easels, timers, etc....
    • Complete wet side outfit from film through Jobo Mistral 2
    • Complete outfits for Nikon F5 and F100 including some now hard-to-find accessories
    • Four lenses for the above cameras
    • Complete finishing gear including seal press, Logan mat cutter, and large stock of 30" 42" 4-ply museum white mat boards
    • Other miscellaneous detritus accumulated over the years.

    Partial list of equipment is attached.

    All of my gear is used but never abused and in excellent working order. I have photographs of all of it for those who have an interest.

    I would like to sell it as a lot to either a practicing photographer or a reseller. If this proves unsuccessful I will break it up and sell the pieces through the usual outlets. Contact me with your interests.

    Thank you,

    Too bad! Good luck with your sale.
    Hope you can access a community laboratory. Why not keep the F100 and the 24-85?

    The Memory F Stop Timer is a wonderful addition to any darkroom. For those who have not tried F stop timing, the opportunity beckons!

    If the lot don't sell, I'm interested in about 4 of the items in that list.

    Thanks!

    Revised list for entire darkroom

    I have attached a revised list for my darkroom and finishing facility. At his point I will not piece the equipment. If I must do so I will use the normal auction sites and send links to APUG classified.

    I am asking $4,500 for the attached equipment and supplies. The supplies and incidentals not shown are too numerous to list, but they will go as well. If a buyer purchases the lot he/she gets everything within four walls but tables, cabinets, and chairs.

    If you have questions please feel free to contact me.

    I donated the entire wet side to a local community college and the dry side to our local arts council for use by young students and artists. I sold all the camera gear gear on ebay. So forty-five years of film and the smell of hypo comes to an end. I had fun while it lasted, but it must end. Unfortunately (?), I have no clue for which end is up on a digital camera and have yet to even consider trying one.

    All the best to you wet-hand folks.

    Regards,
    David

    Ah...digital...fortunately, one need only put the camera on auto, point the lens in the right area, press the shutter, and let the camera do the rest....:{

    I long ago lost my trust in "...let the camera do the rest."
