    I am looking for a de vere 504 with a black and white head. Preferably one of the ilford multigrade heads. If anybody has one, i would be grateful if you could get back to me.

    The Multigrade heads aren't condenser, they are diffuser. I use a De Vere colour head on my 5108 and it's fine for multigrade papers.

    The De Vere your after is a 504

    This is a very good enlarger you are asking for. I'm just putting one into my storage, as I hope to have a use for it when I expand my darkroom to accommodate two. Watch out for the quality of the 500H head system: a good, newer power supply, and a newer, 500CPM (as opposed to 500C) controller are well worth looking out for.

    De Vere are the bee's knees of enlargers.

    I have contacted this seller. It is a floor standing model, which unfortunately, i don't have room for. I need a bench model. Any black and white head will do. Any responses are much appreciated.

    There's some MPP enlargers bon Ebay they are also very well built. Another to look out for is a Johnsons V45 there's nothing really that can go wrong with them (I have one).

    What would you say is a reasonable price for that ebay enlarger? Also will it fit in a Bentley GTC with the roof down or would a larger car be necessary.

    It's hard to say, I'd think up to £400 is reasonable, you can very occasionally pay less. The rust on the lens aperture blades is not so good you have to decide for yourself.

    Any idea weather it would fit into my car. There is just over 1/2 a meter of space in the back with unlimited height. (just as long as the police don't get agitated)
