    Wasn't one sold (practically given away) here recently? How much did it go for?

    I sold a scruffy one without condensers for $50. My darkroom is also the laundry and there isn't any room for a floor standing enlarger, nor do I need to print 5x7 so there was no reason to hang on to it. Without the condensers it is useful only for conversion to 8x10 or used with cold light etc. The cost of the condensers bought without the enlarger is usually higher than the cost of buying them with the enlarger or IOW the seller usually ends up paying you to take the enlarger away.

    That was my minor interest in it Paul, convert to enable 8x10 / 6x17 printing. Long term project though.
