    I have some equipment coming in and cannot take it. If you like Omega enlargers, please contact me.
    Thanks,

    Holly, this is your old buddy Chris in Illinois, of the 5 x7 film holder fame :smile:
    I have several friends who are not that far from you that might be very interested.
    Just called you on the phone, but got no answer, will try again.

    Joe, let me know quick, even if it needs to be stored for a while this should be a good deal. I will make sure the whole package is complete, and these may do big films, who knows?

    Enlarger rescue update

    There are two complete Ilford enlargers with dichro contrast heads, and a parts unit, an Omega condenser head unit a 6 ft steel sink by Elkay, and fixings like easels and carriers. The glasses are Fujinon 50, 75 and 135 respectively and all turret mounted.

    I am flying to Vegas on Thursday for a convention and trade show, so I need to get these rescued and to safety by Wednesday. Can somebody help. Me?

    I have a well equipped darkroom in CA, so I am set, but you might check with two schools that I have gone to in Maine:
    Maine College of Art (MECA) - and USM Gorham - both still had darkrooms when I left the state, and may be able to help you.

    Hi Holly,
    Am I correct in understanding that you are unable to ship any of this? Let me know.
    Kenny
    P.S. I sent a P.M. but expect that it didn't reach you.

    There probably is a cone in the big box of bits. Haven't unpacked that yet, but will you come to get the Omega from Denmark? Just kidding!

    No I have an Omega D3 allready, just need a lenscone for the 135mm (and the AF rail but never mind that)
    How about you bring it here when going on your educational hollyday to Europe. We can meet up in Copenhagen or Odense :D
    Best regards

    I'm currently building a darkroom for the photo club I'm a member of. Unfortunately we're located in Sweden, the drive might be a bit long.

    And what if the Berings passage is not frozen when you get there :wink:
    And entering Russian waters/ice might get you charged for piracy.

    Soren, for the record the Omega has the D 3 cone for its 135 lens.
