    The unit is in great working condition, with clean bellows and spotless glass.


    The item comes with extras! Includes a 35mm neg. carrier, 50mm Schneider-Kreuznach Componon 1:4/50 Enlarging Lens, corresponding Beseler Enlarger Lensboard, accessory bracket for wall-projection,
    a 4-in-1 easel, speed easel, and a very useful projection scale!


    Condition is used, but in good shape. The head/lamp illuminate properly. Unit readily tracks up and down by powered motor.
    Unit has been in storage but is ready to make spotless prints. Everything works and there are no major defects or blemishes. There is slight rusting on the item, but nothing to be worried about.
    The item has been CLA'd in the past 3 months.

    I am asking $300 obo or would like to trade for a med. format camera set.
    I am open to all offers so don't hesitate to throw them at me. The worst you'll get from me is a "No thank you, have a nice day."

    Local pickup only in Downtown Los Angeles please. (Packaging/Freight for this apparently is going to run me $1000+)

    When it sells, 2% to APUG!

    Last bump before this thing is put back in storage to mature a couple more years. Dropping to $200 picked up or trade for good condition med format set, rangefinder set, or nikon lenses.

    The last couple of Beseler 4x5 I purchased ranged from $10 to $40.

    I can't be 100% sure, but I believe the price difference is because of location. I'd say you've been lucky with your finds because you're in Wisconsin. If you'd done a little research you would've found that the market value for these in Los Angeles is quite different from the market value where you are located. Then again, I could be wrong.

    I would think in a larger metro area, the would be cheaper. Yes, luck plays a huge role in a lot of things.

    I sold mine locally without the enlarging lens for $100. No extras either!

    Thanks Katie. I'm pretty sure that with the lens and the extras, $200 is a great price for the enlarger in this condition.

    I would happily pay the $200, except I'm in Germany.

    Okay guys, I'm looking to drive down to the container this weekend. Whoever contacts me before this Sunday can take it for $150. This is before it goes into storage and doesn't see the sun for another 2 years or so.
