    I was just at a print shop yesterday picking up a free to good home revolving darkroom door. They showed me all the equipment they could not use nor give away. They also showed me rows of empty workspaces where many color strippers, etc used to work. Anyway. They had a gorgeous one of these complete and in perfect shape. They are going to cut it up for scrap. Ugh... at least I reserved the vacuum frame!

    I would think that these could be turned into a horizontal LF or ULF enlarger very easily. Would require a light source. That should not be too difficult to make.

    Interesting discussion. I take it that some of you know how to transmute lead into gold.

    Gee Dan, having a bad day? You of all people would surely not want a single good piece (or even less than good) of glass getting trashed, would you?

    Erie, I'm all for saving endangered lenses, but the image Deniz posted shows a lensless hulk.

    Cheers,
