    I am selling (most) of my darkroom equipment. All of it is in good working order, most was bought new. I shoot film then scan and shoot digitally but now only digitally print.

    Right now I am only interested in selling the entire set as a set.

    I do not wish to sell individual items.

    I would be happy to sell to whomever offers what they feel is a fair price and can come to the Kansas City area to pick up the items.

    My desire is to have a knowledgeable person who can use the items buy them (fine to sell off what cannot be used) or for a school or college to accept the entire set as a donation and allow me a tax deduction.

    Please email me with inquiries (for the entire collection). Happy to send back a bit of any sale to APUG. I can supply more information and images to folks who are seriously interested.

    Thanks, Robert

    I would love a setup like this - my dream enlarger and all the bits to go with it!
    Pity nothing like this ever comes up in AU and right now I'm in TH, so won't be getting it here either.

    Someone is going to have a wonderful setup - I am green with envy already. :smile:

    Nice set. We have seen sets like this go in a few hours on APUG (literally) as soon as the items were offered individually. Selling it as a set may be lot harder. Seller's convenience does not increase the number of potential customers. Then again, you only need one, and it is a nice set.

    Good luck.

    PS: Why did you chose a 63mm lens for 35mm (a bit longer than normal) and a 135mm lens for 4x5 (a bit shorter than normal)? Just out of interest.

    I'm simply trying to find a home for this equipment with someone who will use it. My reason for selling as a set has more to do with not having a lot of time to sell the items separately. The enlarger, print washer, dry mount press and Jobo are just to big to ship. If there was interest in those items for local pick up I would consider separating. The darkroom is in my basement and not taking up any needed space so I am not pressed to remove it but I know I will not be using it in the future and eventually will need to remove it. I am not looking to make any money from the sale, these items had value to me when I bought them but no longer.

    Wow...

    The Hass Intellifaucet and Zone VI Timer are two absolute gems in this set. And not the only ones. You have a very well-equipped darkroom.

    It was a joy to put it together and use. Some items (small parts) date back to High School (near 40 years ago)(and these I am keeping as I still develop roll film). Most items were bought 10 to 20 years ago but with minimal to no real use for the last 5 years. The Jobo was bought used (and works but looks used), as was the Rodenstock lens. (The lens looks near new however). The rest was bought new with items being added as I improved my printing ability. If I can find local / local pickup individuals that will buy the larger items I really can't ship and end up with only smaller items left I will be happy to sell those and ship them to however wants them but I want to hold off a while to see it the lot can go at once or at least the large items are taken.

    BTW I did not list prices as I have found sample prices all over the place when I checked various sites. I am intending to sell items for whatever the buyer feels is a fair price for them. If I do any shipping I would add those costs. My Main goal is to takedown the darkroom from my house and to find homes for these items with individuals that can use/appreciate them (or sell them /give them to someone who can).
