    Hi Folks,
    Up for sale is an 8x10 enlarger with an Aristo 10x12 w31 cold light and power supply. It has new bellows and is in good shape. It has 8x10, 6.5x8 and 5x7 negative carrier masks, glass included for 8x10 and 5x7 size. The negative carrier can be rotated by gears for either landscape or portrait orientation. I have used this to print 40"x50" on a pegboard vacuum easel. For VC paper I have used cc30yellow gels (included) inside the light house with in front of the lens multigrade filters. I have used 240 g claron and rodenstock 240 rodagon lens. If you are looking for a portable 8x10 enlarger that you can store under your bed when not in use, let me know. I am asking $350 OBO with free shipping in the US. Due to size and weight, over seas is not an option I want to consider at this point. If you have any questions, pm me. Paypal OK

    Use your imagination on this one.
    regards
    Erik

    How far from the easel would you have to be to make, say, a 30x40 print from an 8x10 negative? I'm trying to figure if I'd have enough room to actually use this.

    I'm not sure of the equation, but for a 40x50 I think the lens was about 5 or so feet away from the easel with a 240mm lens. There is an equation that can tell you exactly how much space you need, but I don't know it, sorry:smile:
    I remember having to stretch pretty good to reach the focus knob and look through the grain magnifier at the same time.

    It uses an aristo w31 bulb. I believe aristo is out of business?

    more pics as requested. The folded up dimensions are 19x18x9 inches. The lens board has rise and fall for easier alignment on the easel. If anyone has more questions, please ask.
