    Makes a change.

    Usually when I see a great offer it's in the US and I would have no way of getting it.

    I bought the complete contents of a darkroom about 9 years ago, I came away with a car full of boxes and for £100 had a mint Durst colour enlarger, trays, safelights, dev tanks, a new tripod, two Bowens flash units, 2 colour analysers, many boxes of paper . . . . . . . . . . .

    It's worth looking out for these bargains, sometimes people don't want the hassle of selling items singly they just want everything out of the way and the money part is secondary.

    Could be a great bargain

    For UK buyers this could be a real bargain, but you'd need to collect. It won't fit in most cars either :D

    It sure was a hell of a lot cleaner than mine. :D

    This was right in Andy K's backyard, so maybe he bought it or tipped someone off. The other thing about these collect-only auctions is that you can ask eBay to list items by distance from your home postcode, so you can easily see if they are accessible or not.
