    I recently purchased a color darkroom and i have no need for this processor. I have no knowledge of this item except for what is was told. I was told that it has been in storage for years and worked fine when it was put away. There are two Durst Printo Intro's, One Printo Tank and two Printo Energy's. I have no idea of the value so I'm looking for the best offer or local trade. It looks like 2 power cords are missing for the energy's. There is also extra red gears. Local trade in Chicago. Shipping to the U.S only. Cat is not included! I also have the manuals for the processor.

    There are 5 boxes, 2 heavy and 3 lighter. I can try to weight them on my bathroom scale but it dont know how accurate it would be.

    According to my bath scale they are apx 35 lbs. It will be a little more because i would have to get them all into a larger box together.

    Well, since the cat isn't included I will have to pass.

    No, but were these designed for RA-4 use? There's coils for heating on them... About how wide are they?

    I will look in the manual about the RA-4. By eye the elements look about 5 in wide.

    This unit will process almost any paper available today that is resin coated, be that colour or B&W.

    I have the exact same unit and I've used it for RA4 and B&W, the different wheels allow you to change the speed of the machine.

    It is factory set (mine was) to do RA4 which is 45 seconds in each bath.

    I use mine at 27ÂșC with B&W paper and run a strong fixer bath, I then hand wash and dry with a paper dryer that I have.

    I have used a Printo for RA4 and it works well. The one issue is the developer oxidizes more rapidly than in my ICP, but rubbing alcohol will take off the stains. It will do paper 12" wide.

    I found the power cord for the processor. $250 for the two tank system w/manuals and extra gears. Local pickup preferred. Trade also?
