    Where in Va are you? I frequently travel to SW Va, Richmond, and less frequently the VB area. I'm not far from Sterling. I'd bid, but I already have an underutilized enlarger and accessories...

    Thanks for the offer! I am going to be sort of near the area next week so I just might bit on it myself! What I am looking for is some thing that will let me do 6x9 and for sure, and larger if possible...Right now I have an Omega C700 but its largest is 6x7...Thanks again!

    :sad: Outbid

    I guess I did not realize how much I was hoping to pick up an enlarger that could do 6x9 until I was outbid...Combined with the fact that I was also outbid on a Rodenstock Rodagon 105mm lens I guess I will not be printing medium format any time soon! The fates seem against it...

    $76 is still dirt cheap for that gear. Penn Camera in Tysons Corner had some of those enlargers for sale earlier this year and they were all $200+ IIRC.

    Very Very true! I was suprised there was not more interest early on this lot! I have to decide if I want to invest more now on the C700 or go for an enlarger that will more fit my growing needs...
