    IT'S OK

    I figure we can buy the processor back cheap when
    Sean tries to check it through carry-on...

    I was trying to figure out how Sean was going to get the forklift home. Portable ULF camera anyone?

    Yeah, but you could buy some Howard Bond Photographs. An auction is the real litmus test for valuing fine art photography.

    No internet access. As a matter of fact the auction is by invite only.;-p

    Absolutley right.

    Actually, since digital has wiped out AP in consumer stores, and since this stuff is hard to ship, I don't expect many of the 'usual suspects'. Tough to pack a couple suitcases with enlargers and fly 'em back to New York. These ain't Leicas.

    Maybe some Ebay speculators, and scrap guys. Who knows. A few photographers there will encourage the auctioneer to not bundle everything up in lots.

    Just don't tell Carnie.

    "DURST PICTOCHROM ENLARGERS"

    I can vouch for this enlarger since I have one, if you can get it cheap it is an AMAZING machine!!

    Actually, I would prefer a B&W l1200 to keep my colour l1200 company.

    You won't be sorry, and I bet it would be superb for color work with it's color control panel. Has everything from air cooled head, exposure shutter for exact exposures, focus control motors so just slight taps on the focus button and your grain pops into focus. You can program it or run it 100% manually..

    Sean: do you want to know about the old color separation labs in Detroit that had to throw out their 8x10 Dursts... because they couldn't give 'em away ??

    BTW... can we ship you that fork truck COD ?

    That happened here in Milwaukee. A 30,000 square foot lab/studio quit business, had a sale and at the end two 8x10 enlargers were standing between the dumpsters waiting to be discarded. The place was only blocks from my house but I had no way to move the enlargers and no place to put them...EC

    I'm kinda thinking that the fork lift is just the thing for 8x10 architectural jobs

    Just think of all the added movements it could add to your camera. a whole lot of Rise, Shift, Rear Tilt. That fork lift is looking more and more usable
