    I'm a little over an hour away, but sent a 4x5 to the scrap guy myself a year ago. Still using Beseler 4x5 color 45s.

    It is a shame that this type/quality piece of equipment can't find a home.

    St. Louis is a little too far away, otherwise I would have grabbed it myself. It would be a real shame if this goes to the scrap yard.

    agh. That's so tempting. A 5 hour drive there and back is a bit too much, though, especially considering I'd spend about $100 in gas alone.

    Yet another LF enlarger practically being given away in the US whereas in the UK I would have to pay between £400 and £600 for something similar.

    Grrrr!!!!!

    What a shame. I have no need for another 4x5 enlarger, yet, if this was close, I would be tempter of buy it. :sad:

    I'm in St. Louis and we already have a room full of unused enlargers ... last few years as labs / rich doctors shut down their space, they were giving all their enlargers to us. I hope someone buys it and puts it to use.

    I think I told this somewhere else on the forum, I went to a yard sale which had a bunch of enlargers and bought a DeVere 504 with an Ilford multigrade head, mixing boxes and carriers. When I asked the guy how much he wanted for it he said "Nobody else will ever walk in here and ask me that, how about 50 bucks?" I couldn't get the money out fast enough!!..Evan Clarke

    If that is the one that had advertised it on craigslist, I am still kicking myself for not going. On the other hand, its an hour each way so I don't just go drop by. Your one lucky person.:smile:
