    Hi All:

    Well, I said things like this never happen to me - I have to retract it.

    I had put an ad on a local Buy, Sell and Trade board mentioning I was looking for darkroom equipment, never expecting to find more than perhaps odds and ends.

    Well, this morning, I got a call from a gentleman who had taught a photography course years ago.

    He told me he had a large amount of gear for me if I was interested in travelling to the other end of PEI to pick it up. Like a flash, I was off!

    This is the list as received. Once I decide out of it what I am going to keep, there will be some items I will offer up for only the cost of shipping, exactly what I paid for it:smile: . When I am ready (a few weeks off, as I want to get my darkroom set up first), I will place a message announcing the surplus items... Don't ask till then:D

    Can I Take THEM Home?

    Sure will. Like I said, it will take a while (till I get the darkroom set up) before I know. I won't be selling any of it off - but will be giving the surplus items (whatever they may be) away for the cost of postage. That was part of the agreement I made with the individual who gave me this equipment. For certain there will be a number of tanks and film clips. But it will take time till I decide what to let go and what to keep. For certain I will be keeping the enlarger:smile:

    I will be sure to post to the list when I am ready...

    Dave

    Come on Dave, you've got two Gralab timers, keep the new one and give me the old one.

    I am setting up my darkroom too :wink: and I have no processing timer yet :D
