    I recently picked up an entire darkroom for a very nice price locally. I mostly bought it for a few pieces but I have no need for this enlarger. It appears to be in great shape and still working although the baseboard is a little rough it still looks flat. I'm more than willing to pass this along for free to another APUG member. It would however be nice to see a $20 donation to the site. If you do or not it's up to you, total don't ask don't tell on my end.

    The enlarger includes:

    50mm lens
    75mm lens
    135mm lens
    Omega D3 autofocus enlarger
    Omega "Type D" lamphouse
    35mm neg. carrier
    6x6 neg carrier

    I will also throw in a Polycontrast filter set (under lens), a few trays, and an enlarger timer. If I can find a spare 4x5 carrier I will toss that in too. I have several easels laying around so one of those will go with it as well.

    The only bad is that I only got one nose cone with this unit, (appears about 1" deep, has 75mm lens in it) and the 50 and 135mm lenses are missing their retaining nuts. I also have at least one other nose cone (I believe for 135 or 150mm) that I will throw in, I will look for others.

    Sorry for the horrible pics; I just packed up my digi gear and only had my phone handy.

    I'm in Newtown, PA, about 45 minutes north of Philly, and just across the river from Trenton NJ.

    Since I'm in an apartment and I don't really have a lot of room to keep it, I'd prefer to move it sooner than later.

    DANG! This is a great offer! I have an Omega D2, which is very nearly like this, and I paid $150 for it just last year from a local photographer here who was clearing out his stuff - and with only one lens and hardly any other extras, like carriers. Folks, if you're tempted by this, GET IT!!! It is a very easy enlarger to use and you absolutely will not be disappointed. Heck, if I was anywhere near PA, I'd keep it for myself and make a double donation to APUG for it.
