    For anyone who's interested - and some jolly nice ones too - I'd buy the colour Durst L1200 myself if I (1) Didn't already have one and (2) Would definitely be disowned bringing 'another' one home :whistling:

    "It followed me home - can we keep it?"

    I saw that as well.

    aaaah, yes, you're probably right - the pics look like Vanbar!

    I don't think it's Vanbar. Photo Resource has a different address (Rae St, Nth Fitzroy) and have been in business for about 30 years servicing schools, professionals and keen amateurs - probably in competition with Vanbar for a lot of stuff. I'm guessing that some of the items being offered are trade-ins that haven't moved or some dead stock and they're having a house-cleaning.

    It's a Durst! That should be all you need to say, right? How could she possibly not understand! :D

    Ha ha, I was just about to reply and she walked in the door, so I told her what you said. "It's okay, it's a Durst". She said "What does that mean?" I replied "That means it's the finest quality Italian enlarger."

    I just managed to get the enlarger into my tiny darkroom. Wow, what an awesome beast! :smile:

    By the way, I am offering up a Durst Laborator 1000 with cold light head free to a good APUG home. (After all it was given free to me by a fellow APUGer.) :smile:

    I'd be more than happy to give it a good home, I've just started getting into printing, did my first contact prints on the weekend. (And I completely understand if you decline, its only my second post on APUG :wink: )

    Hi, Mr Student, sorry but you were the third person to reply. The first one has already collected the enlarger. I'm sure you will find something soon.

    Hi all,

    In case anyone is also looking for an enlarger and some darkroom equipment I have just listed my gear for sale on eBay. I've been living abroad for a few years now so my gear needs to find a new home - maybe treat yourself or someone else this Christmas??

    As I'm new to the forum I can't post a link so please search on eBay for the item titled:

    Cheers,
    ojom

    Included are:
    I.C.S. (Japan) enlarger and Haupt timer - Very good working condition

    Darkroom accessories - Excellent, rarely used condition
    Enlarging easel (still boxed), screens, trays (partial bottles of chemicals included), tongs, measuring jug, thermometer, safe light, negative viewer, grain enlarger focusing aid , film canisters, blower brush, block-out fabric (if your darkroom has a window), and variety of 100+ sheets of Ilford photo paper

    Would this be of any use to you?:
    http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/LPL-B-W-..._Photographic_Accessories&hash=item4ab1929daa

    The description isn't very...um... descriptive:
    "LPL Black & White Enlarger
    System 770 Pro, inc Easel
    Plus smaller B&W enlarger
    Bought the LPL with the intention of creating my own B&W lab,
    but did not get around to it"

    Only $35. Pick up is from Dandenong North. Twenty one hours left on bidding and no one's bid yet.

    Hope this helps :smile:

    Sorry, Hoffy. No intention to spam... merely trying to help someone get a hold of an enlarger.

    Thanks Molli! I've been keeping an eye on enlargers via ebay, I'd been waiting until I had a car to go pick one up, and I finally bought a car yesterday. So enlarger shopping I will go :D
